Christina-Pirello Corporate Programme
I can highly recommend the Corporate Seminar on a wholefood plant based diet!
The seminar I booked for my team was held online so everyone could join and it was still a great team building event and very interactive despite it being not in person. The material was not only explained in a simple way but also shared in writing afterwards with additional videos and support to help get people started on making a change in their daily diet and in their approach on how they see food, namely as the main factor to their health which was a very empowering message. 
There were many eye-opening moments due to the condensed information which is hard to find elsewhere in this format given the years of experience Marlene and Bill have. The fact that the material references scientific studies backing up the teaching is very convincing and provides ample and easily accessible sources to dig deeper. Especially helpful was the possibility to ask questions about common "myths" when it comes to certain aspects of dietary needs as the contradictory information one finds on the internet and by self-explained "experts" is rather confusing and difficult to debunk.
The fun and easy going way Marlene and Bill lead the seminar made everyone comfortable to also ask questions about their own eating habits followed by explanations and advice on what to change.
I personally believe this kind of teaching should be a must not only for companies caring about their employees but also at schools to help children understand how crucial and at the same time easy it is to eat right.The seminar did certainly provide proof of one thing: It is not rocket science to feed yourself or your family in all age groups a healthy diet and we should all get started today rather than tomorrow!

As a firm believer that in order to be productive and exceed in our roles we need to have strong mental and physical health now more than ever! With that in mind I invited Marlene Watson-Tara to run an online session for my team speaking about the importance of our daily diet for overall health. With the way of the world, we now live in its critical to improve our immune system and stay healthy. 

Wellbeing of staff both mentally & physically should be the most important factor for any organisation. Marlene's decades of experience and unique skills along with her 'can-do' vibrant personality made the experience not only educational but fun. Learning how to eat right for maintaining a healthy gut is critical now more than ever. The whole team enjoyed the session and it was a start to a transformational journey for many of us …

As leaders in any organisations you should know that your employees are the greatest asset, and looking after their wellbeing should be every leaders no.1 priority."

Christina-Pirello Thank You For My Regained Health

I am so fortunate to have met Marlene. She is the most wonderful inspiration and an amazing teacher with incredible knowledge that she shares eagerly and passionately with you. Her never-ending support and encouragement as she guides you back to health are a gift in itself.

Although I had been an almost lifelong vegetarian, eating a predominately vegan diet I have learnt so much about eating a very different vegan diet, one that nourishes every cell of my body. I have loved all the food and it has already transformed my energy, my looks and my health! I am amazed.

I am so thrilled with Marlene’s new book Go Vegan. It is a beautifully laid out book with stunning photographs of every recipe. I want to make everything. The book is more than a cookbook. It is filled with incredible information that covers nutritional science, ancient wisdom and Marlene’s passion for our environment.

Seriously, I have only known Marlene a few months, but you actually hear her speaking when you read the book. As Marlene says, health is everything, without health, everything is nothing.

Christina-Pirello You Have Saved My Life

Thank you for saving my life. Since my health consultation with you, my eyes have been wide open. I have never before been exposed to the educational material you sent me in my programme. It's mind-blowing. I have already lost 20lbs - I am off my medications and on the path to renewed health from the many diseases I have had for years. Gastritis, hiatus hernia, obesity, pre-diabetic and more. My energy levels are soaring and I feel re-born. My consciousness is like never before. Thank you for the amazing work you do. With gratitude, Justine Aubrey, U.K.

I met Bill Tara 20 years ago when I was making a lifestyle change. Through his teaching and mentoring I became a teacher myself and through his continued counsel and friendship found my own voice and the way to speak my own truth. It has served me well in my life. Bill changed the way I see the world and for that I have the deepest love and gratitude for him. No one should miss the opportunity to experience study with him.
