Maggie presented at American Express's Black History Month event to support Black owned businesses. She captivated our audience from sharing facts about Black history to expressing the trials that she encountered during her "Black Year". We were all moved and wanted to do more to support the Black community.
Maggie Anderson was our keynote speaker for our annual MLK Week. She gave a wonderful speech a few years ago that the faculty, students, and local community are still discussing . She inspires both with her words and her actions.
Maggie helped us to draw our largest crowd ever for a Black History Month event at Rutgers Business School. She inspired us all to reflect and to act.
Maggie is the perfect and the most powerful orator for this important message. She has spoken at many USBC events, locally and our national conventions. Because of her speaking and stand, the mission is still here and relevant. She set a precedent. So enthused by her efforts and motivated by her challenges, we created our ByBlack.us platform, a revolutionary service making it easier to find businesses locally and at mainstream retailers. That had to do with her vision to launch The Empowerment Experiment and write Our Black Year over a decade ago, when no one wanted to talk about Buying Black.
Maggie is both an engaging and inspirational speaker. Her conversation was tailored to our Company and teammates. And months after the fact, we still receive complimentary comments asking if we can find more speakers like her. I’m not surprised because I heard her speak in person years ago. But the COVID-limited, virtual Maggie was just as impressive!
It is no exaggeration to say that Maggie Anderson was the greatest speaker we've ever had in the 15 years of our leadership conference. Smart and engaging, provocative and challenging, there is only one Maggie Anderson.
Maggie is truly the best! Such a powerful speaker! She was the perfect choice to keynote Tuskegee University's 25th Booker T. Washington Economic Development Summit. So many participants said that she was an inspiration! She was passionate, charming, inviting, and funny. Moreover, she left a lasting impression after. Her passionate and provocative speech inspired a lot of hope and action for the Black Community here. Indeed, truly refreshing for such trying times!
