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.

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 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.

Currently a Stress and Anxiety Expert, Linda has for the past ten years,  inspired and educated men and women to develop a positive mindset to reduce stress, achieve more 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.

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.

"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.
