For International Women’s Day in 2021, the Her Campus chapter at Wilfrid Laurier University held a virtual event at which Marti MacGibbon spoke about her triumphs and how they have led her to be a more empowered individual. Marti was not only a pleasure to work with, but also to listen to via Zoom. Marti adapted her presentation for a virtual format seamlessly while engaging and interacting with the groups in attendance. Her story is unlike any other, and her perseverance is a keystone element in her hardships. Marti left a lasting impact on not only the audience, but the university community as a whole.
To whom it may concern,
It is with great pleasure that I write on behalf of Marti MacGibbon. She is an asset to the anti-trafficking movement, an inspiring leader and all-around outstanding human being. Marti is a frequent speaker at nationally renowned conferences and her reviews are always great. Ark of Freedom Alliance brought in Marti as Emcee and Comedienne for our inaugural Resilience Awards last year and I can personally attest to her sharp wit, hilarious puns and creative insight.
Thank you for speaking at our 2019 NJ Human Trafficking Awareness Event on January 25th. The feedback from attendees was overwhelmingly positive! Your presentation was met with the full attention of the audience, and finished with everyone on their feet with a standing ovation.
Our goal for each of these annual events is to provide a platform for those, like yourself, who bring knowledge, experience, and insight that help us as we continue the fight against human trafficking. And you certainly helped us meet that goal. In addition, your kind, thoughtful, and humorous style of speaking with our audience was amazing.
To Whom It May Concern,
We had the pleasure of featuring Marti MacGibbon as one of the plenary speakers at our Second Annual Survivor-led Symposium – “Engaging Survivors of Commercial Sexual Exploitation in the Search for Justice.” On April 5, 2018, Marti delivered an immensely impactful account of her experience of overcoming extreme difficulties such as commercial sexual exploitation, post traumatic stress disorder, domestic violence and addiction.
Whom It May Concern:
My Sister’s House highly recommends Marti MacGibbon as a speaker for your event. Marti spoke at our 10th Annual Human Trafficking Conference, “A Trauma-Informed Response to Human Trafficking Victims” where there were more than 530 participants which included survivors, law enforcement, attorneys, service providers, advocates and community members.
We had a day of intensive panels and discussions surrounding human trafficking and we hoped to have Marti come in and end the day on a lighter note using her humorous approach. Within the first ten minutes of her presentation, the room was in laughs.
To Whom It May Concern:
The Landing highly recommends Marti MacGibbon as an inspirational speaker. Our nonprofit organization invited Marti to give a keynote speech at our 2nd Annual Christmas Breakfast Fundraiser on December 1, 2017, where there were over 300 attendees including survivors, community members, law enforcement personnel, government officials, business men and women and other nonprofit agencies.
The Landing serves survivors of human trafficking and those in the commercial sex industry with a trauma informed approach fueled by the love of Christ.
Thank you for your presentation to the Association of Women Executives in Corrections in Daytona Beach in September of 2017.
Your humor mixed with your life experiences made your presentation both funny and informative. Our membership appreciated hearing your story and highly rated your workshop.
We appreciate your willingness to work with us to make your appearance possible.
Please accept this letter of recommendation for future use in your speaking engagements.
It is a complete honor for me to write this letter on behalf of Marti MacGibbon. There is no doubt in my mind that Marti is the one of very best speakers I’ve heard in my 20
years of working in the substance use disorder and mental health fields.
This past September we had the good fortune of bringing Marti to Flint, Michigan for a SUD Women’s Specialty Conference. The days before the conference Marti made herself available to visit local treatment and residential program so she could get to know our recovery community.
To whom it may concern:
I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Mrs. Martha (“Marti”) MacGibbon of Marti Mac Enterprises, LLC. On AprilS, 2017, Marti MacGibbon was our keynote speaker at our annual Geminus Community Partners’ conference which was on the topic of “Secondary Trauma -In Harm’s Way”. Marti’s keynote speech was enlightening, inspirational, educational and entertaining to over 600 guests that were in attendance.
I hope you and Chris have recovered from your trip to Southwest Indiana. Many of my friends and colleagues have let me know how much they enjoyed your presentations on July 19th and July 20th, and how impressed they were with your energy and message of hope and understanding. As you know, the Evansville area works collaboratively to promote drug and alcohol prevention, and treatment while working with local, regional and state law enforcement; your presentation was appealing to all three types of service providers.
