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.

Rothworx Professional Development Events
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.
