"We had a tall order to fill. We needed a charismatic, entertaining, highly engaging professional speaker to perform more than we have ever sought from anyone. In four days, you interviewed celebrity Russell Simmons without being able to anticipate where the 50 minute interview would go, while wrangling the interview to keep the focus on the audience. You were the host and moderator of a game among 15 of our members of five teams. Finally, on the fourth day, you closed out our conference as the final keynote, with a powerful, soulful, and wildly entertaining keynote that brought a full house to their feet with a standing ovation. You flawlessly and masterfully embraced everything we asked of you."

Panel Discussion Leader

A great way to add substantive value to your audience is by assembling a panel of individuals who represent the best of the best in your world. As the panel discussion leader, Linda find out what your objectives are for this group, what messages you want the audience to receive and design how the panel members will best serve your objectives. She will then guide the discussion not only with predetermined questions, but also with questions that arise organically out of the conversation.

Comments about Linda’s panels from audience members:

"I really enjoyed the expert 'Super Star' panel that you assembled. One of them offered a 'best practical’ that I had never thought of but am going to start using immediately!"

"The Super Star panel rocked! First of all, it was great to hear from people in my world who, not only have 'been there, done that', but who were so willing to share what they would do differently if they were starting out today."

"One of the highest value experiences during this conference was hearing from the expert panel. Particularly I appreciated hearing about what most frustrated them about their work, and how they consistently manage to overcome that frustration."

"...Awesome to work with!"

"Linda Larsen was awesome to work with! She was high energy, funny and engaging. Her captivating style made it easy for the audience to relate and understand her message. We have worked with many motivational speakers and have never received the type of positive feedback from participants as we did from Linda’s presentation. Her impact was so great that weeks later people are still quoting her."
