I just attended your conference on Monday in Foggy NL and as a professional, have never attended such an energizing, humorous and just gratifying session. You see, we are usually, too long dragged out days receiving information about some new treatment, research pertaining to practice, dreaded new policies ,etc….all good stuff for sure. But never have I LEARNED more that will , I believe , help me that better nurse. As we say here on the rock, you were wicked!
Atlantic Healthcare Association
Linda succeeded at motivating a large group (300) highly educated business consultants/coaches along with their spouses. Her approach was refreshing and fun, especially for a group used to facilitating and leading their own client session. Linda engaged everyone with her enthusiasm, quick wit, great storytelling skills and ability to make us all laugh and think about our own work/life balance acts. She captured our interests then left us to reflect upon our own circumstances. Linda’s session was inspiring, very professionally delivered and well done! If you want to re-energize your group at your next conference call Linda!

Your speech was dynamic and energizing and even though you were near the end of a busy three days, you got everyone listening and actively involved in what you were saying. It was fantastic and I can’t tell you how much we appreciate you helping us finish our Conference on such a high note. After hearing you speak it is obvious why you are in such high demand as a keynote speaker. Thanks so much for helping us make our conference a huge success.

The audience was engaged in Linda’s presentation immediately. Following the presentation, this is what some of the attendees had to say. ‘Absolutely awesome speaker. What a positive attitude and view of the world. Thank-you. I laughed until I cried, then laughed again! Excellent speaker.’ We recommend Linda and she was a delight to work with.
You had come highly recommended to us by a member of our team who had seen you at a previous conference. I am thrilled to report that we were not disappointed with the recommendation. Unanimously, our staff tells me that your session was one of the best things we have done as a division in awhile. You kept us laughing almost non-stop for most of the morning, and then had us in a reflective mood as we contemplated your message. By the end, we were in tears, not of laughter this time, but due to thoughtful introspection. More than one person said to me that you had missed your calling as a stand-up comedian, but had your presentation only been about the funny parts, then we would have missed the deeper message.

Linda, I just wanted to let you know how AMAZING your presentation was delivered. Soooo many of us were talking about you afterwards. That is exactly what we needed to end the conference. I will definitely be emailing you on Monday in hopes I have completed that ONE thing. I can just imagine how busy you are so I’ll keep this short. You are the BEST speaker I have ever listened to…and the shapes you explained were so very accurate! Keep doing what you’re doing, and I wish you great success and hope you continue to motivate and touch as many people as possible. Thank you for giving me that….BOOST!

Everyone is still talking and laughing about the things you shared. Your presentation provided us with a fresh perspective on some challenging issues teachers are facing. Thanks.

Linda took the time to survey all our participants prior to our event. Her understanding of the group was excellent. If you are looking for a speaker to either kick off or wrap up an event with energy, humor and great perspective, Linda Edgecombe is a great choice.
