Principal & Founder, The People Group

From the moment she took the stage, Linnda connected with the audience, told interesting stories and expertly covered the topic, plus handled a few questions at the end of her talk. The energy in the audience was very high and tangible. Even better, our members returned to work with information they could use immediately...My final comment to Linnda was, “If this had been the Super Bowl, you scored the game winning touchdown!”

President, Oklahoma Business Ethics Consortium, Tulsa Chapter

"(Linnda,)If this has been the Super Bowl, you scored the game winning touchdown!" We high-fived each other as she returned to the Tulsa Airport. Mission accomplished!

Community Relations Manager, Library, Arts & Culture

I want to thank you again for your presentation at the Glendale Central Library in 2011. The lecture about your book, Surviving the Toxic Workplace, drew a sizable audience that was eager to hear what you had to say on the topic. I spoke to audience members who worked in local government and private businesses and they all said they benefited from you talk. You really came through and we were pleased to be able to sponsor the lecture.

Patricia Warren, Author of the best seller, "The Front Runner"

Not only was your talk informational, but sublimely professional and entertaining as well. I loved seeing you in action. Your use of the screen visuals is very smart.

Dr. Shauvi S. Rogers

Thank you for enlightening our class and Rollins College about the toxic, and often poisonous, environment we may face in our workplace. It is a pleasure to have heard you speak, firsthand. We look forward to hearing more about your findings in the near future.
