Linda's Bio

As a passionate and experienced motivational speaker Linda focuses on the issues surrounding leadership, business, change, business mental health and well-being.

She understands the challenges faced by those driven to succeed. She’s been there… and Linda has found that all achievers want practical, feet on the ground techniques and strategies that work in the real world, in the heat of the moment, and in their daily lives. Something that not only helps them become better in their workplace, but more importantly, helps them to become better people and to enjoy life more.

Her speaking and mentoring is supported by her recent book titled 'Transforming Your Stress Into Business Success' which delivers feet on the ground, in the moment, easy to implement strategies that those in business can embrace. Stress and overwhelm has the capacity to bury people and many think that asking for help is akin to admitting weakness. This book helps those who are stressed and want to make a healthy start to taking back control of their work and their life.

After two decades of senior educational leadership, Linda took a leap of faith into business and self-employment. She successfully combined a sales and marketing career with a recruiting, coaching and sales training role while developing her expertise in self-awareness, mental skills and emotional resilience.

Linda has traveled the world in order to gain the necessary qualifications and knowledge required to coach and support individuals as they enjoy business and personal success without the negative mental stress.

Linda , known as The Stress Specialist, has for the past ten years, inspired and educated men and women to develop a positive mindset to reduce stress, anxiety and overwhelm, achieve greater productivity and significantly increase the enjoyment and success they get from their lives.

In her presentations, Linda positively tackles the challenges of being at your best more often and she delivers a compelling message. With an ability to speak in a way that really connects with the audience Linda will drive home the life changing messages around mental and emotional health so participants gain a fresh perspective and begin implementing new strategies immediately.

I have been very fortunate to experience Linda’s presentations on a number of occasions. Linda never fails to amaze me with her ability to engage every audience member through both her content and her delivery style. It is a rare speaker who has everybody listening intently to every word. Throughout those number of speaking presentations the content has varied. I have learnt about stress and how everything begins with a person’s thoughts – a very powerful presentation indeed! I have learnt about communicating in better and more effective ways to achieve the outcomes we want. I have learnt about leadership skills and the importance of emotional intelligence. Everything Linda speaks about is worth sitting up and listening to .... and better yet acting on her advice! I would thoroughly recommend Linda for any speaking engagements - her wise words, life experiences and ability to communicate are inspirational.

"How to Enjoy Your Business Success...and Your Relationship, Your Family and Your Social Life...Without Experiencing Stress, Tension or Overwhelm"  

The reality is that most business owners waste the best time of their lives spending hour after hour on building their business, with no way of knowing how to reduce stress and overwhelm.

They are so wound up after doing a full day’s work that they have nothing left in the tank for their family.

They are ‘there’ but they’re not really present as they can’t switch off from work, can’t leave work at work, and constantly feel like they’re caught in a trap.

In this uplifting presentation the audience will discover how to take back control, regain balance and fuel their success.

You, the participant, will:

  • Master the 3 EASY ways to make sure you feel like you're working 100% on your business as well as putting 100% effort into your family.
  • Discover how to avoid coming home from work, missing those great moments with your partner and your kids.
  • Learn the 1 secret to making sure you have time and energy for the people you love the most
  • Discover the savvy skill sets to get through pressured times in your business...and how to make sure you enjoy your family time TODAY – even if you don’t know that’s possible!
  • Implement the important things missing in your day, creating some valuable time for yourself so you can feel like it’s not just work, work, work.
  • Plus so much more!

This presentation for business owners will stop you wishing you had more time; stop you kidding yourself that spending time after hours or in the weekends is necessary to make things happen in the business, and stop you making excuses to your understanding partner about why you’re not there again with your kids, missing out on family events that won’t be repeated!

It’s time to quit the stress and overwhelm…AND ensure that YOU enjoy the business success you’re after AND treasure the reasons you most likely went into business in the first place – your relationship, your family.

An attendee at a recent seminar presented by Linda Wells said:

"The seminar was presented in a very supportive way with a wide variety of people attending, men and women, younger and older. The atmosphere in the room was relaxed and I noticed that people around me were very engaged in the content. I came away with a much better understanding of how we sabotage our own health goals and I have learnt some very useful techniques." - Cathy Manktelow


"Managing Your Mind-Set"

mindset 5
Your mind and the way you think influences everything you feel, do and say. You are immersed in unpredictability and complexity in your professional and personal life and the challenges you face have

become more demanding rather than less. You need skills and attitudes to create awareness and help you learn how to take control of what’s happening. It’s your ability to manage your thinking, your conflicts and your experience that will ultimately make the difference.

When you change your thinking, you change your life.


"Living on the Edge!"

An enlightening and motivating presentation which looks at ways you can respond more effectively, improve your mental health and emotional resilience.
