Just a brief note from me to express my personal thanks to you for acting as the MC for the VIP Event celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Courage to Care. It was a very successful function, your relaxed style contributed greatly to the evening.
Libbi Gorr is the consummate professional. She has this great ability to bring the whole room into the evening and create a sense of inclusivity, interest, intelligence, and really great fun. There is no doubt that Libbi is a major part of making our events so successful and popular.
The Jreissati Family Pancreatic Centre dinner was a wonderful night (and a long time coming!!). Guests were thrilled to be there and to hear about the centre’s work, only launching in February last year. Libbi did a magnificent job at addressing the serious topics, while managing to keep things light, fun and engaging, noting how tragic pancreatic cancer is as a disease. She was also fantastic at leading the panel segment and asking questions that those in the audience may not have been comfortable asking.
Libbi, thank you for the most enjoyable lunch yesterday. Thanks for the enthusiasm and the insight that you brought to the discussion and thank you for the wonderful way that you managed to drive the discussion. Feedback has been just gorgeous and interest in support (from the place cards) is brilliant, so thank you again for bringing such beautiful energy to the event and the conversation we are very grateful.

What a fantastic International Women’s Day dinner with Libbi Gorr hosted by the Kew Junction Business Association at the Postmaster Hotel. Wow, did Libbi, a past MLC Kew girl light up the room, hilarious authentic observations of life, reflections of society that made our poor male bar tenders wince…
Libbi Gorr recently spoke at our 2022 International Women’s Day function, she was a fantastic addition to our event, she was interesting and interested in us and our Organisation. She was engaging and included all members of the audience from the men to the younger women in attendance. Libbi was very accommodating and gave freely of her time, she was involved and happy to talk to people, have photos taken and take them herself, giving instructions which were very useful. I find myself saying “Libbi said to do it this way!!” She made notes and referred to the Zonta Club and Melton in her address, she also commented on the achievements of our Woman of Note. Libbi was so easy to talk to and made everyone at ease instantly, a real pleasure and joy to meet her. Thank you.
What can I say…what an incredible event. Thank you so much for your involvement in our International Women’s Day celebrations at Austin Health. We have received wonderful feedback from across the organisation and can’t thank you enough for helping us bring this event to life. You have an incredible connection with people. The way you framed up our event and the conversation you had with our award recipients was fabulous. Each and every one of our award recipients were able to be honest and authentic in their responses and wow, what an impact that had! From the minute we first spoke, the whole planning of the event was just seamless. Once again, my sincere thanks again to you Libbi - I hope we get to work with you again in the future.
