Marti MacGibbon came to Ames, Iowa in Sept. 2016 to help my organization and other local providers to celebrate National Recovery Month. Marti spoke to an audience of about 500 people at Iowa State University Memorial Union about the topics of hope, resilience and empowerment when impacted by life obstacles. Marti delivered an excellent presentation, which included heartfelt messages…Marti used humor, but still sent an excellent message to the audience. The response from the audience was overwhelming, and the feedback was phenomal regarding the messages she left with all attendees. I strongly recommend Marti MacGibbon as a speaker.
