"I went to one of Maureen's presentations for the very first time not knowing her story. I am NOT a survivor myself, but have not been able to stop thinking about her, or the things she spoke about. Maureen is one of the very best speakers I have ever been blessed to hear. It was more then just the subject, it was the way she presented; the clarity in her voice, the passion when she speaks and even the look in her eyes.
In my industry I am always “forced” to go and listen to speakers. I usually hate it. I do anything in my power to not pay attention and just pass the time. I play on my phone, shop on amazon etc. Maureen had me from the moment she spoke her first word. She is so poised, and passionate. I had no idea about her life experience and to be honest, she may be the strongest women I have ever met. I hope and pray she continues to find the strength and courage to continue speaking to crowds. Her story must be told. The way she tells it - I have no words, but I know in my heart there is a very large group of women and men that she has the power to help!
She changed me that day. I look forward to the next time I can hear her speak again"
