Comments from Past Event Participants

57th Annual Memorial Business Day

Alyssa Organ

"Gill recently spoke at our 57th Annual Memorial Business Day and we cannot recommend her enough! Gill was genuine, knowledgeable, and inspiring. She provided a fresh perspective on the fitness industry, finding your own unique path, and how to have confidence in yourself. She also made sure to build our event theme into her presentation, which made the whole experience feel more personal for us and our event attendees. We would love to hear Gill speak again if given the chance!"

Dental Retreat & Continuing Education

Dr. Debbie Delaney

"It was truly refreshing and relevant, especially during the emotional demanding toll COVID forced on our lives, to have Gill enlighten and redirect our thoughts and energy towards a more positive approach. Her unique 4 pillar system for success and her drive to help so many globally to achieve wellness, balance and happier, healthier lives is so powerful that her talk made a profound impact on each one of us. Gill’s concepts on fitness, diets, wellness, and overall mindset were so passionately presented and thought-provoking. The attendees also had an opportunity to participate in her HIIT cardio class, known as a Friday Funday workout, at the Inn. I can honestly say the energy in that room in the early hours on a Friday morning was phenomenally charging. Participating in both the workout and talk on such an inspiring message truly had you leaving the weekend a 'better version of yourself'. Gill, thank you for such an inspiring, fun weekend!"
