15To Whom It May Concern:

It is with great pleasure that I recommend the fascinating lecturer, Marti MacGibbon, to serve as a keynote speaker for your organization. Ms. MacGibbon recently spoke at our “Putting the Pieces Back Together” Mental Health Conference, and the attendees were positively captivated. Marti is a bestselling, nationally award winning author, inspirational speaker, certified addiction treatment professional, and comedian. Marti shares her story with honesty and humor, providing an inspiring look at conquering addiction and trauma, overcoming adversity, and regaining hope. She is a remarkable woman who has triumphed over adolescent sexual abuse/assault, addiction, human trafficking, domestic violence, severe PTSD, homelessness and addiction to lead a successful, happy life.

We were interested in a motivational speaker who could use relevant, real world examples and experiences to help motivate the attendees in making a positive difference in the lives of others as well as their own lives. One of the selling points was her desire to customize the presentation to meet the goals and objectives of the conference.

Marti MacGibbon is a dynamic, motivating and effective facilitator. She provided great insight and her personality definitely is an asset and her energy resounds in the presentation. Ms. MacGibbon has a unique ability to be entertaining, professional, humorous, motivational and informative all in the same presentation. Her ability to relate personal events into the presentations enhanced their impact and allowed the attendees to grasp the message. Marti will make a positive impact and be a valuable asset for any conference or seminar.

The pace of her lectures is brisk but the information is not too difficult to absorb. She possesses first-hand knowledge that is not readily available in books and not commonly heard from others. She can make the audience feel like they have known her personally by the end of every lecture and also gives the audience simple, effective strategies anyone can use to build resiliency and overcome challenges with grace and a sense of humor.

I recommend Ms. Marti MacGibbon and her lectures without reservation. I hope you will give her an opportunity to address your participants. Please contact me should you need additional information at 515-993-1710 or jfelt@dhs.state.ia.us.
