I definitely found my X factor with the help of Linda's inspiration, encouragement and expert coaching... I recommend Linda to any aspiring speaker who wants to take their keynote presentation to an exciting new level".
Mark Pfeifer, Keynote Speaker, Expanding Time.
FROM A CONFERENCE ORGANISER:
"From the (boisterous) outset, Mark Pfeifer captivated the audience - many of whom are seasoned conference attendees jaundiced by the typical NZ conference speaker line up. Mark's fresh approach to a familiar topic was both entertaining and refreshing… he helped make our conference experience professional, enjoyable and just a little different".

"Before I had coaching from Linda I was terrified of public speaking. In fact it was my biggest concern leading up to the wedding. Once I started coaching with Linda this all changed, she helped me initially construct a suitable speech, then taught me the skills to learn, and deliver it with confidence. Under Linda guidance, I was able to park my concerns and get on with enjoying the day. In particular Linda's technique of not using prompt cards was invaluable.
On the day I was able to stand up in front of 120 friends and family and deliver a "personal best", I recived much postive feed back, including from my new wife. It was even enjoyable. I have also found these basic skill in public speech valuable at work. I would recommend Linda's coaching to anyone running up to public speaking event. Linda has a great passion for public speaking and talent for teaching it."

"Hi Linda - just a big thank you for your efforts in preparing me for a BIG gig in the USA. The bottom line is that you adopted the 80/20 principle (my topic and therefore something I could relate to) to focus me on the few big things that would make a very real difference to my presentation. Some of the work was a bit scary, like pausing for what seems like an eternity before speaking, but come show time it fell into place very well. Thanks".
