Michele Rigby Assad Text Reviews
Michele was our opening Critical Conversations keynote speaker in May 2018. Her first person accounts of being on the inside of CIA operations in unnamed countries kept the audience spellbound. She shared personal stories not usually heard through the filtered media, as well as personal feelings about what kept her faith strong in the midst of out-of-control circumstances. Her faith is strong and her accounts genuine - her friendly persona and interaction with the moderator and audience were encouraging and enlightening. She is a delight!

Michele Rigby Assad brings a message of inspiration, hope, and challenge that captivates and enthralls audiences of all generations. From encouraging college students to seek God through the uncertainties of life, to sharing with prospective donors how scholarships to a Christian college played a pivotal role in her life and accomplishments, Michele merged her unique message with the needs of our organization in a way that few speakers can accomplish. She arrived at our university as an internationally recognized expert and left as a friend we will long remember and look forward to welcoming back.
