Michele Rigby Assad Text Reviews
Michele Assad is one of our favs! Her open, authentic and engaging style made her an immediate hit among our students, and her stories brought the classroom discussions to life.
Our organization has monthly speakers and we've seen and heard from our fair share of amazing people. Michele was different, however. She was unique to her story but her story was really all of our stories. We were able to relate to how we underestimate our own capabilities. Whether you are a CIA Intelligence Officer or a Homemaker, she shares how the power we all have to create our own destinies has always been within us. Wonderful presentation!
Michele Assad's stories of life in the CIA are riveting, and she tells them in a way that captures the astounding nature of her experiences in the Middle East. She challenged us to pursue a fresh perspective on the interaction between Christianity and Islam and the role of America in the world.
Michele was a compelling speaker who our employees loved. Her stories of life in the CIA provided great life lessons and inspired our team to reach for their full potential!
Michele was one of the biggest highlights of both women's conferences this year. She was engaging and personable and the women walked away with a sense of purpose and inspiration after being in her session. As an organizer, I deeply appreciated Michele's professionalism and genuine concern for the people, the program, and the purpose of our event. We would be honored to host her here again at Lake Yale.
Michele has been an absolute delight to work with. It's been fantastic to get to work with someone with such experience and fascinating stories to share, while being so human and easy going. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire collaboration, researching for the content prep has been passionating and fascinating as well! The feedback from our attendees has been overwhelmingly positive, our attendees truly loved the interaction. I would recommend Michele as a speaker for any executive event, thought leadership session, female empowerment, leadership, etc.. She truly is a catalyser of incredible content and debate, and her content is simply eye opening."
I was fortunate to have seen Ms. Rigby-Assad address an audience last year. I was so impressed that I purchased her book, 'Breaking Cover.' It was a ripping yarn! I knew that the professional association to which I belonged was to hold their annual conference early this year. I helped arrange her to present. She spoke to our group and was fantastic! The feedback from the attendees was off the charts. They particularly commented on her real-life anecdotes, the lessons therein, and the inspiration it provided. She prepared a fascinating PowerPoint slide show that was tailored to the group. I whole heartedly recommend Ms. Rigby-Assad to inspire and entertain in just about any group setting!
