Brill works with disarming transparence. She knows her content speaks for itself; so, instead of plumage and hysterics--which we might forgive her position--we encounter instead a tenacious and understated presence.

When I heard Alida speak, I was in a hotel ballroom filled w/ 300 people. Within moments of beginning her talk, she had the entire room mesmerized. Six hundred eyes & 600 ears were trained on her, not one of them wavered until after she finished speaking.

'When I heard Alida speak, I was in a hotel ballroom filled with 300 people. Within moments of beginning her talk, she had the entire room mesmerized. Six hundred eyes and 600 ears were trained on her and not one of them wavered until after she finished speaking. Even then, the incredible silence in the room continued for a few seconds as though everyone was holding their breath, and then the room exploded in applause, followed by a standing ovation. "

Alida Brill's story is not a story. It is a LIFE, in capital letters, fully lived and celebrated, told by a talented writer and speaker who deals with chronic illness, depression, and a society that in many ways still does not really understand.

Ms. Brill is an extremely dynamic and eloquent speaker. Attendees were very moved and benefited greatly from her presentation. . . . this presentation has been one of the finest to date in the 23 years since the workshop's inception.
