Breaking Busy: Finding Peace in the ChaosBreaking Busy: Finding Peace in the Chaos

"Linda was excellent to work with while planning our Finding Balance Conference, very flexible, professional, and friendly! Her presentations were the hit of our conference - we received many great feedback comments from our participants such as - "Linda was FABULOUS! I enjoyed her so much and learned so much!" and "Linda was great, have her back!". I highly recommend including Linda Edgecombe in your next event!" 
Virginia Tech University

"We always get excellent feedback on your talk. But you completely knocked it out of the ballpark this year. Everyone raved. People who've seen you before "felt" a connection with you, people who had never seen you before thought you were the most impactful speaker they'd ever heard.
There is power in authenticity, but there's even greater power in authentic vulnerability."

Women of Worth Foundation

"I just spoke with Olivia at Green Shield and she was RAVING about your presentation - the group just loved you - she said that many attendees said you were the highlight of the entire conference."
Green Shield Insurance

"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!" 
Scotiabank (Leadership and Frontline Team)

"I just attended your conference on Monday in Foggy NL and as a nurse 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 Health Authority

"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".
International Facility Management Association

"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!"
International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers

"Linda succeeded at motivating a large group 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!"
RLG International, Inc.

"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."
