Welcome to Maria Todd’s official website

standingMKTminiDenver-based consultant, award-winning speaker, trainer and author, Maria Todd, has worked on various healthcare, health tourism and international development projects in the USA, Europe, Asia, Latin America and Central America for over 30 years.

As part of her professional work as a consultant, speaker and author, Maria Todd travels a great deal, not only all over the Americas but also internationally. Wherever she is, she encounters the latest and greatest hospitals, clinics, healthcare practitioners, hotels, restaurants and local attractions that integrate vertically or horizontally— and meets with many government officials and investors. She identifies rising trends and really amazing ideas as well as some things that are pretty bad, where an opportunity to do something great was missed. Maria writes, speaks, and consults internationally about her experiences and professional activities with the good and the bad in healthcare and health and wellness tourism and provides insights regarding what stakeholders, investors and government authorities might learn from these examples.


Maria Todd has agreed to collaborate with Top Health Speakers to lead several hands-on workshops in 2016. She will focus more of her time in Denver at locally produced events in order to continue to share insights and skills while temporarily reducing her international appearances.  The change in strategy for her personal appearances was necessary as she recuperates from her second incidence of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary emboli over a 7 month period.  View scheduled topics and details by clicking the training tab above
