“Strikingly original and authentically thought-provoking is an apt description of how Mariagrazia Buttitta speaks and writes. Mariagrazia has a remarkable ability to speak in a way that is unforgettable in presentation and richness. I have had the professional opportunity to witness the skillful way Mariagrazia connects with an audience on several occasions. Mariagrazia joined the conversation as a panelist at two distinct college programs entitled: THE HEART OF HEALING in 2012 and HOW TO LIVE YOUR BEST POTENTIAL in 2013 while attending college. The second program was initiated by Mariagrazia and was a vital topic for college students to hear. Maria received rave reviews from the audience for her ability to express a stirring portrait of what students need to know at the heart of their human experience with regard to life’s challenges. The commitment that Mariagrazia brings to an audience is professional, empathic and humorous in very meaningful and gentle ways. Mariagrazia Buttitta is truly gifted.”
