My Story of Addiction and Redemption
"Mr. Moyers was an outstanding speaker and a very warm, approachable person. His message was powerful, well crafted, localized to the audience (he took great care in doing this), and so relevant. I would be happy to hear him speak again sometime, [it was] very enjoyable."
"Our conference went very well. Mr. Moyers was such a wonderful speaker. He is so passionate about getting the message across that addiction is a disease, not a moral failing. He was inspiring and approachable and it was a delight to meet him and have him participate in our annual event."
“He was great! His presentation was phenomenal – from his engaging and compelling personal journey, to his message of hope and encouragement, to his ability to tie in the award recipients and the event into his presentation. Thank you for your recommendation!”
