Praise for Lynda’s Speaking & Presentations
Lynda was one of the favourite workshop leaders at our Imagining Possibilities 1-day Conference for young women (age 15 – 24), engaging participants in a dynamic and passionate way. Comments included, “It was very inspiring and prompted introspection,” and, “She was clear, organized, giving, knew it all really well.” Her work completely supported our goals of firing up young women to take charge of their lives and believing that they can: Lynda was positive, spoke their language and led participants to reach their own “aha”. We are delighted that she is returning this year.
~ Suzanne Heron, Event Coordinator
Lynda is a passionate and engaged speaker and her workshop was very well-received by our participants. Our conference attracts a specific segment of family service professionals (those working with pregnant and parenting youth), and I very much appreciated Lynda’s openness to targeting her workshop directly towards the work they do. The feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive, with participants commenting on Lynda’s dynamic presentation skills, the quality of the resources, and the usefulness of the skills and strategies discussed.
