Organizer, POWER Symposium
There are speakers who inspire with their words, and there are speakers that motivate by example. Libby Gill did both for our group at the POWER Symposium. The message she delivered resonated strongly with the audience of female entrepreneurs. She was able to connect with them by sharing her experiences—both positive and negative. Many shared that they felt “lucky” to have been able to listen and learn from someone they quickly grew to admire because of her success and perseverance. She provided a message of hope, despite uncertainty, along with an action plan they could use immediately to benefit their own businesses. Libby also made herself available for attendees to speak with before and after her presentation, which they greatly appreciated. Overall, she was approachable, professional, personable and extremely memorable. She ranks among one of our highest-rated speakers in the history of our conference.
Warner Bros., Director of Learning and Organization Development
“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!”
President, Washington Public Utility Districts Association
“Libby did a great job. She came in today, very inspiring, and I think personally touched the heartstrings of a lot of us. We all have our hang—ups and our fears and I think for me personally she really inspired me to go out and take more risks and improve myself. She inspired me to be a better person, a better family man and a better businessman. So, I just thank Libby for the great job she did today and I think she can help your organization as well.”
Director, Global Pharmaceuticals
“Libby was absolutely fabulous…a perfect blend of credible business experience, fascinating life circumstance (without being cloying—this is tough to pull off) and helpful insight into how to reframe stagnant perspectives and effect real change. The best part is her enthusiasm and humor—and her skillful avoidance of the type of rah—rah cheerleading cliche trap that many speakers fall into. I am not alone in feeling this as her talk sparked a long and interesting discussion among conference participants.”
Senior Vice President, Disney—ABC
“We’ve seen a lot of great speakers here at Disney, but Libby’s presentation was one of the most inspiring I’ve seen 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.”

Change is good, but sometimes too much change can wear out even the hardiest team member. Especially when the change seems unmotivated and uninspired, in other words, change for change's sake.
