Testimonials

I was totally blown away by Elizabeth — she is one of the best speakers I have ever heard! Amazing does not come close to describing how wonderful she was. She had our audience laughing, crying and totally riveted to her the entire speech. The audience gave her a standing ovation.

Vocational Rehabilitation Association of Canada

Ontario Society

The consensus is “best AGM ever”. I owe a large portion of the thanks to you, Liz. Your ability to relate and engage with the audience is unique. The Board, consumers, staff and donors fell in love with you. We now know why you are referred to as “Canada’s Sweetheart”. On a specific note, your response to questions was perfect and honest. You didn’t oppose or support different methods of therapy but spoke about what worked for you! That is really what it is all about.

Canadian Mental Health Association

Elizabeth Manley clearly speaks from her heart. In each and every presentation she has given in support of the Alzheimer Society at the local or national levels, she has openly shared her family’s experience with Alzheimer’s disease to break down the stigma of the disease and to help make change happen. What a great tribute of love for her father. Elizabeth truly inspires families to take advantage of Alzheimer programs she knows will have great benefits for them in their dementia journey. Her presentations leave everyone in a positive frame of mind with the message that appropriate services can be made available throughout the disease process if families and politicians work together...

Alzheimer Society o

Ottawa and Renfrew County

Not only were you warm and personable but your story was also truly inspiring. Our delegates were truly touched by your journey, the struggles and personal challenges that you experienced, and your eventual triumph to become an Olympic champion. Your presentation was lively and incredibly heart-warming.

Ontario Real Estate Association

To describe Elizabeth “Liz” Manley would be as if a firecracker being let go into a crowded room of people that need some means of energy to be administered. I have known Liz for a long time, although only recently reconnected, I have regretted not having her near during those times of disparity.  Liz is a “Motivational and Inspirational Person” who has always had the ability to help others when the time was needed. As a leader within a youth organization (cadets), recently during these times of “Covid 19” I thought it was important that we had Liz do one of ‘Pep Talks’ with the cadets, not only did it help the kids, it energized our adult staff, and has been shared by...

It was the most unlikely of circumstances that introduced us to Liz; we are forever grateful that this happened.  We had Liz speak to our membership, and it changed many of us.  The inspiration that she generated, from hearing about her own incredible journey, was invaluable.
