Keynote Speaker

Keynote Speaker

Maria Pascucci

Maria Pascucci is a former frazzled college perfectionist turned certified professional life coach, author, speaker, leader and changemaker. She has become the “calm” voice for a new generation of rising leaders from around the world.

Her book Campus Calm University won a gold medal in the 13th Annual International Independent Publisher Book Awards, and has been called, “groundbreaking, refreshing and as calming as a cup of peppermint tea, or an extension on that term paper due tomorrow morning.”

Recognized as an impassioned spokesperson on perfectionism as a private barrier to student health, self-confidence and leadership development, Maria speaks from the power of personal experience to audiences across the nation. She had the honor of keynoting Purdue University’s 12th Annual Women in Leadership Conference, the University of California, Merced’s 2nd Annual Women’s Empowerment Conference, South Dakota State University’s Women’s Leadership Summit and ConfidenceUNG.

She is also a three-time speaker at the annual National Conference for College Women Student Leaders. Her TEDx Talk has been called an “honest look at the dangers of perfectionism and the pursuit of it.” Her media appearances include USA TODAY College, The Chronicle of Higher Education, The Huffington Post and dozens of media outlets around the world.

The Student Conference on Leadership is excited to have Maria sharing her expertise with us and helping our students stay on course when the waters get rough.
