What Clients Are Saying
Thank you for sharing your experiences and your humor with us. The entire room roared with laughter at some of your antics. You are such an enjoyable speaker. I do not believe I have ever seen our crowd give a standing ovation to anyone, yet at the end of your presentation, all were on their feet! I believe you could have had their attention for another hour! You are an inspiration to all who work in behavioral health. It reminds us why we come to work every day. It means a great deal. I hope you will visit us again soon.

Marti MacGibbon was the keynote speaker for our Annual State Conference in September 2015. Ms. MacGibbon delivered an inspirational presentation laced with humor, honesty, and hope. Through the sharing of her life experiences with addiction, trauma and mental illness, Ms. MacGibbon showed her audience of psychiatric nurses that recovery is possible; and she gave us insight into what we as psychiatric nurses can do for others even in the most trying of times. Ms. MacGibbon provided exactly what she advertises, and does so with great authenticity and enthusiasm. I would highly recommend Marti MacGibbon as keynote speaker for other audiences of mental health professionals.

We would like to thank you for being our Keynote Speaker for our Annual Camp Victory Women’s Weekend! Your humor started our weekend with a lot of laughter, and your keynote address was filled with triumph, hope, and encouragement to live life fully, and to look back on our difficulties in life with faith, passion and joy! As you found out, Women’s Weekend is a fun, educational and therapeutic time for women who are newly diagnosed with cancer...many of the attendees commented on how you lifted their spirits and made them appreciate their lives more, and how “progress not perfection” is important. Your honesty and openness is refreshing...
