Leslie McGuirk 







Leslie McGuirk is an internationally acclaimed illustrator, children’s book author, astrologer and corporate speaker on the topic of creative thinking, and how to unlock human potential.  She launched her eco-friendly design company, McGuirk’s Quirks, in 1984 with a line of T-shirts, later building the iconic brand to include over 1,500 products for Takashimaya, the high-end Japanese department store.

McGuirk has written and illustrated over 20 children’s books and has sold over two million copies worldwide. Her first adult book, The Power Of Mercury, (Harper Collins) is about her life as an astrologer and how this ancient esoteric science is incredibly accurate in describing how people are designed. 

She currently works with western trained doctors, and corporations, proving the accuracy of astrology for both personal health, and for the wellbeing of a company.   A popular guest speaker at many award-winning spas, including Rancho La Puerta, she has been breaking attendance records for over 20 years. 

She has been a keynote speaker for AARP, Campowerment, as well as The Jim Henson Company, Wilmington Trust, and Embry Riddle Aeronautic University etc.  Her unique viewpoint on how to not turn into an "adult zombie" received a standing ovation at her TEDx talk in Hollywood, CA on “The Importance of Being Wrong”.

  • How little decisions make the most impact
  • Reinventing yourself
  • Moving ahead when you can’t seem to get anywhere
  • Following your soul’s purpose
  • Shifting from a horizontal platform to a vertical platform
  • How being connected to technology in an unbalanced way is not sustainable
  • The importance of connecting with people without expecting a result
  • The value of gratitude
