What Others Are Saying About Linda’s Presentations…

“I originally met Linda through a conference where she was brought in to speak to the group on negotiations and influence. I had such a great experience with Linda, in particular her dynamic approach, effective communication style, command of the audience and her ability to make learning fun. With this being said, I contracted with Linda to come and to speak to my team about leadership, communication, influencing and negotiating.

Linda’s preparation for this training workshop was comprehensive, she was able to take the information I provided (e.g. the team, projects and challenges) and work those details into her presentation and the breakout activities. Linda delivered the key messages to my team in an extremely professional way that could be easily understood an actionable. Linda was effectively able to keep my team fully engaged by structuring the workshop in a way where the communication was balanced back and forth. More of a conversation together rather than just being spoken to.

I look forward to working with Linda again in the future and comfortably recommend her to any one who is looking to for a professional speaker to talk to their teams on any content that falls within her scope.”

 — John Snyder, Global Sourcing Sr. Director at Essilor International

“Linda was FANTASTIC!  I’m so protective of the quality of speakers and panelists for our conference. She exceeded my high expectations. Shortly after Linda started the first session, I went upstairs to the back of the theater and sat by one of our board members.

The Executive Assistant Summit went GREAT! Everyone loved Linda and the message she delivered. I think some good sentences I heard were: “I wish we had longer with her, this is so beneficial!”, and “I feel so empowered!”, and lastly “I didn’t realize until now how many things I have not asked or mentioned because I didn’t have the confidence, now I do!”
