Gina, you were magnificent. Everyone, and I mean everyone, was moved by your presentation. Sharing your story, certainly had elements many of us could relate to, but the gift you gave us that night was sharing your journey with such honesty, warmth and humor; sharing both pain and sorrow, that left us breathless. Thank you! Indeed you were right, we did not leave being the same person as we were before we met you.

Gina is an engaged speaker, who both teaches to and learns from her audience, in an interactive, supportive and human-focused environment. As a high school teacher, I invited her to visit our school in order to share her experiences, create and open forum for discussing gender issues/challenges and show our students that someone is listening to them. Gina went above and beyond in her visit, not only showing humor, humility, and compassion, but also presenting informed research on her topics that left us all better informed, more sensitive to others, and curious to do more in our community. These are the signs of a truly strong leader, speaker, motivator and citizen. I believe Gina could present on any topic, as she takes on everything with professionalism, determination, a love for knowledge and a desire to share it. Her personality also puts you at ease immediately, spreading warmth and community wherever she goes. She really left a mark on our school with just one visit and continues to be a mentor for our students who are still searching to find their voice.

Gina is the go to person for the convention scene! She has a great way with people making them feel comfortable with her wonderful ability of filtering out the chaos and insanity. She will always help you find a solution and get you back on track. It has always been a pleasure to work with her.

Gina has been a trusted ally with one of the most critical partner services in the Game industry. Her expert management of the trade event services and recruiting resources for our game studio facilitated the outreach and hiring we needed to achieve to grow our business. Over a three year period I was constantly in touch with Gina for assistance in the branding and messaging of our studio to the community via the all important Gamasutra website. She was always quick to respond with great answers, as well as setting up any service requirement I had. Her high quality skills were also paramount in supporting the trade event needs of our U.S. office and international parent during the highly visible game industry trade shows hosted by UBM. Gina is a true professional, immensely easy to work with, and a solid decision maker who always has her clients' needs as a top priority.

Gina headed education and recruitment sales for a product I once ran, the Game Developers Conference. When she was assigned the segments, they were the ones none of the other salespeople wanted, they didn't deliver the same commission for the effort as a large tech vendor. However, Gina has that classic work ethic that compels her to gently and genuinely get the whole job done, well beyond expectations, for the benefit of her team and her clients. On top of that, she is passionate about those segments, and the idea that young people getting started, and existing professionals at a fork in the road, deserve a great first and second chance in their careers. Gina was extraordinary in her role, and a wonderful person to spend part of my work life with. We have remained friends ever since.

Gina is one of the most creative, professional, dedicated, and talented people I have ever had the privilege of working with. You will never be without support on your project working with her, and you will never doubt that you have 100% of her attention. I cannot say enough about her extraordinary work ethic, talent, and devotion to her colleagues and clients. No matter what business Gina would work in I would trust her with anything and everything. I cannot give a higher recommendation. She is simply the best, and most authentic colleague anyone could hope for. You will not be disappointed.

Gina is the real deal. She is authentic, engaging, hard working, client centric and approaches her customers challenges with professionalism. She is a terrific public speaker able to engage the audience with a disarming honesty and transparency and leave a lasting effect...I would recommend Gina for keynote speaking engagements. As a sales professional, Gina consistently produced results beyond set targets and is a true asset to any sales organization.

Gina is a powerful presence and an exceptional speaker. Her background in sales, event management, and entertainment brings together the strategy to develop the right content and the pizzazz to deliver it in a memorable way. She is the perfect keynote speaker for virtually ANY meeting because she can address the power of change, the value of being true to oneself, and myriad other topics. She is a force of nature!
