“You were just what the doctor ordered for a group of managers that had just endured a long and stressful budget cycle. The humor in your talk was wonderful but nobody missed the real life message that was underlying the humor. Laughter can be a life saver and is always a great tool for stress management.”

You were well prepared, knew your material and kept everyone involved, which only adds to your professionalism as a speaker! The audience wanted to listen so they wouldn’t miss anything you had to say. In fact, when under stress, we all still keep reminding each other of your words.”

“You were fabulous, Linda! When the audience interrupted you umpteen times for applause and laughter, all of us knew what a super talk we were hearing. You really did help us learn how to prioritize our crises, identify stressors and stress busters and most importantly, laugh for the health of it. I’ve coordinated this event for three years now and I have to tell you that you are the first speaker to receive a standing ovation at the conclusion of the presentation! You are tremendously effective as well as hilariously entertaining!”

"Our purpose was two fold, an energizer for the staff as well as gaining usable techniques for working with school-age children. You did that and more. It was very refreshing to laugh with purpose! Your positive attitude invigorated us as friends and teachers of children."

Katie Harton, Training Coordinator, Family Resource and Referral, Inc.

"Linda is incredible!! She can make the most sullen face beam. Linda has come to our offices to lighten up our staff--not an easy thing to do when you're going through a major take-over as we were at the time. She taught us to play with toys, reminded us to laugh, helped us to look at the most stressful and embarrassing times as an opportunity for laughter and release. Linda engages the audience right from the get-go and in a work setting, this is great for team building. It allows you to see your co-workers in a different light and after you've shared this laughter experience, it just seems easier to get the day to day tasks done."


Your professionalism and personable nature add a touch of class to your presentation and assure a most rewarding experience for participants. Of particular note is your ability to uplift the spirits of those with whom you come in contact. This is an ability which is often needed in times of added stress, both work related and personal. Your use of props to accent your motivational message is a truly splendid technique."
