"We’ve seen a lot of great speakers here at Disney, but Libby’s presentation was one of the most inspiring in a long time. She managed to blend practical business information with deep insights about personal responsibility and leadership. After a very challenging year, our group was ready to get back to work, totally re-energized by her empowering message."
"Libby Gill was the best opening keynote speaker that we’ve ever had. She touched on subjects of leadership and change, and she also reached out to our members before she came here to find out the specific leadership challenges they were facing, wove it into the presentation, and really made it hit home. She touched them, she understood them, and she inspired them at a level that you can only hope any keynote speaker would. I can’t thank her enough."
"Your 'You Unstuck' presentation was a HUGE hit with our global HR team. The place was still buzzing today about challenging the INRs, using the CSE method and various ways to cross your body parts. We’re already talking about how to leverage you and your approach for our senior execs. Nicely done!"
