“Linda Edgecombe has the uncanny ability to deliver a message that is timely, relevant, and engaging to a breadth of people within the organization. Speaking about the topic of change to an audience comprised of teachers, maintenance workers, custodial staff, teacher assistants, librarians, psychologists, and so on, is challenging. Linda turned this challenge into an opportunity. Her motivating and energetic approach to talking about change inspired a lot of people to reflect on their own lives, the lives of their family members, as well as co-workers and consider the long held beliefs that drive what they do. Her delivery is imbued with passion and humour. People in this organization still refer to her program many months later. “
