Thank you, Marti MacGibbon, for taking the time to provide the inspiration, insights and guidance on yesterday’s virtual presentation on human trafficking and addiction. I was overwhelmed with your words and appreciate the information and advice you shared. Again, thank you for sharing – your words were heartfelt. Please accept my deepest thanks for speaking to my group.
Marti MacGibbon spoke virtually at University of California San Diego’s 2021 Human Trafficking Awareness Event. She’s a phenomenal speaker, charming the audience with her wit and candor. Marti uses her comedic skills and warm spirit to deliver information about the tragedy of human trafficking and triumph of survivorship in a palatable and hope-inspiring way. I highly recommend Marti for a speaking engagement.
It was such a pleasure meeting you last week when you spoke at the 20th Annual Alabama APSE Conference that was sponsored by the Alabama Council on Developmental Disabilities. You did a fantastic job as our opening keynote speaker and also in your breakout session. Those in attendance found your presentation to be inspiring, motivating, educational, informative and sometimes even humorous. You are exactly what we look for when we book a keynote for our annual conference. We like the audience to leave feeling better than when they arrived.
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. She engaged our diverse audience of survivors, social workers, lawyers, members of law enforcement, and other concerned professionals by utilizing her sharp sense of humor and wit. Her ability to reach such a vast array of listeners was evidenced by the constant laughs that emanated from the room.
Marti’s keynote speech was enlightening, inspirational, educational and entertaining to over 600 guests in attendance. Attendees included school teachers and social workers, probation officers, judges, attorneys, health service professionals and child services case workers, to name a few. She really captured the audience by sharing her personal story and life experiences…I highly recommend Marti MacGibbon if you are looking for a dynamic keynote speaker for an event or evening.
For communities or organization seeking a speaker who tells it like it is, shares her life story, and gives 110%, I recommend Marti MacGibbon.
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, where there were over 300 attendees including survivors, community members, law enforcement personnel, government officials, business men and women and other nonprofit agencies. She is not only an enthusiastic speaker, but also a compassionate person who truly cares…This made such a difference when she gave her keynote, because she actually connected with our mission.
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.
There is no doubt in my mind that Marti is one of the very best speakers I’ve heard in my 20 years of working in the substance use disorder and mental health fields. Marti has an ability to gain trust and respect immediately by the depth of her knowledge, her lived experience and let’s not forget her sense of humor. Marti delivered a message of hope, love, and courage to women in recovery and to those who work with them. I believe that the reason she has such an impact on all people she presents to is that she is clearly genuine in every regard. People in recovery can see through hypocrisy.
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. It was also noted from those of us who attended both presentations that you never repeated a personal story, keeping the audience engaged and more aware of addiction and recovery.
