Linda Edgecombe has the uncanny ability to deliver a message that is timely, relevant, and engaging to a breadth of people within the organization.

Cheryl Gilmore

Superintendent
Lethbridge School District No. 51

I just attended your conference on Monday in Foggy NL and as a professional, 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 be a better nurse. As we say here on the rock, you were wicked!

Atlantic Healthcare Association

Your speech was dynamic and energizing, and even though you were near the end of a busy three days, you got everyone listening and actively involved in what you were saying. It was fantastic and I can’t tell you how much we appreciate you helping us finish our Conference on such a high note. After hearing you speak, it is obvious why you are in such high demand as a keynote speaker. Thanks so much for helping us make our conference a huge success.

McDonald's Restaurant Owners

The audience was engaged in Linda’s presentation immediately. Following the presentation, this is what some of the attendees had to say: ‘Absolutely awesome speaker’, ‘What a positive attitude and view of the world. Thank-you’, ‘I laughed until I cried, then laughed again! Excellent speaker’. We recommend Linda and she was a delight to work with.

Pharmacists Association

You had come highly recommended to us by a member of our team who had seen you at a previous conference. I am thrilled to report that we were not disappointed with the recommendation. Unanimously, our staff tells me that your session was one of the best things we have done as a division in a while. You kept us laughing almost non-stop for most of the morning and then had us in a reflective mood as we contemplated your message. By the end, we were in tears, not of laughter this time, but due to thoughtful introspection. More than one person said to me that you had missed your calling as a stand-up comedian, but had your presentation only been about the funny parts, then we would have missed...

George Brown University

Thanks again for suggesting Linda Edgecombe (Hall of Fame Keynote Speaker) for our virtual AGM last month – by all accounts, Linda was a huge success! So much so that we have another group within the firm looking to book Linda for a smaller virtual conference in November. Thanks for a great Live Online Presentation.
