Libbi is certainly a first-class performer! She did an excellent job at preparing her team for our inaugural great safety debate and delivered a fabulous closing argument. She captured the audience's attention and had them in fits of laughter
We loved her (and I am looking into her eyes!) and without a doubt she gave us the fun/take off we needed!
A huge thank you to Libbi. She was a fantastic MC - really good at balancing warmth and sincerity with humour. We would love to have her back again next year!
Libbi was great - so many people have said so - and added just the right touch of levity to the lunch. Please pass on our special thanks to her.
Libbi was a sensational start to our conference, her presentation transformed the crowd from 'barriers up' to 'receptive and open' for the rest of the day....her down to earth manner pleasantly mixed with humour allowed her message to relate to everybody. I was also impressed with Libbi making the time in a pre-conference phone interview to understand exactly the crowd she was going to be addressing
It was an absolutepleasure to have Libbi facilitate our panel discussion. Her preparation was exemplary. Her presentation was full of humor and intelligence and was received enthusiastically by everyone. Libbi performed excellently. She is an asset to your management group and I would have no hesitation in engaging her again and recommending her to others. Libbi was everything I had anticipated and more.
Libbi was terrific. Moree certainly knows she was here as the women haven’t stopped raving about her! She hit the nail on the head for a lot of women who took what Libbi said in her presentation about looking after ourselves and for many they are considering making some changes in their lives to enable them to have time for themselves. This is the result we were looking for! She is a very interesting in-depth person who is very knowledgeable and it shows.
Thankyou, yet again, for another raucously entertaining and uniquely insightful talk- characteristically witty, intelligent and highly entertaining. It’s such a pleasure to work with you.

Libbi did her job with heart. …high emotional intelligence….really engaged with all levels of people at our event ….and in fact, drew out some of their stories that we otherwise would not have got to hear. Libbi was a warm and charming host and performed her MC role with professionalism and style.
Enormous success… a performance of great humour, sensitivity, intelligence and integrity…. brilliantly constructed with unique moments of “magic” that made for a very special and memorable evening.
