Client reviews

  • I thought that Linda was absolutely terrific!! I can’t remember when I last laughed so much in one day… She is truly an inspiring personality and is extremely good at what she does. ‘Dynamic’ would be the catchall word.

  • Because Linda delivers her message with such great humor, it has allowed our staff to get introspective in light of the major turmoil we are experiencing at this time. She has delivered this presentation to our management team as well as our frontline staff.

  • 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.

  • As a meeting planner it is always a great relief to have speakers that are easy to work with and provide exceptional content and value to your conference. Linda was that and more! The attendees at IFMA’s World Workplace 2010 conference and expo “LOVED” Linda. We offered Shift or Get off the Pot in a Power Speaker series twice for our nearly 5,000 conference attendees and we had participants attend the session twice “it was that good.” Moreover her book SOLD OUT in our onsite bookstore within minutes. Linda did an amazing job for us and we will definitely bring her back.

  • The feedback from our Conference was absolutely amazing. Thank you for exceeding all expectations and delivering the perfect message to our delegates. While we were uncertain whether a person of your gifts and talents would be fully appreciated by our audience, you were definitely the right choice at the right time. We were especially pleased by the positive feedback received from the family members who joined us for your closing remarks. It is very rewarding to know that we have helped improve the lives of our members and their families – THANKS A MILLION!

  • Absolutely awesome speaker. What a positive attitude and view of the world. Thank you. I laughed until I cried, then laughed again!

  • Wow, what a presentation! Our team was over the moon with Linda. She is direct and honest, with a strong sense that she truly “gets it.” We are big fans!

  • On behalf of our entire Shell Mobility team, I wanted to thank you for joining our engagement and providing a high energy, entertaining, and very timely talk! I especially appreciated how you were able to connect our themes and challenges with your message and guidance.

  • Linda’s style and humour quickly warms even the toughest of crowds. Her ability to meet people where they are is a gift. We highly recommend her for your next event! I feel re-energized and focused. Thanks for an enjoyable day with many “aha” moments!
