"I don't know where I would be without Linda's guidance and mentoring! Today I spoke on CBC news.... And I could only do it because I was authentic.... And just told my story. "

“You don't sell what you do. You sell your love for what you do.”
But to do that...you've got to be in the moment. So often we think we're in the room when we're really not. Linda talks about fundamental strategies to get out of one's own way to bring authenticity, spontaneity, creativity, collaboration and your very best self to the table.This 45 minute talk includes a little audience participation. Laughter and fun is guaranteed. And to Linda's mind...essential.
"Linda came to our office during a time when our team was going through a lot of change. There was not only a thirst for excitement and fun, but we were also searching for a way to get people at the office collaborating and talking to each other. Linda's workshop was exactly what we needed. She was fun, enthusiastic and inclusive - with a 2 hour session that left us asking for more. Somehow she even found a way to get the quietest people at the office to be the stars of the show and performing in front of the entire office. We definitely look forward to working with her again in the future!"
- VP Client Services and Digital at Beyond Marketing Group

“Linda’s gentle coaching encouraged even the shyest of participants to join in. The laughter could be heard down the hall! I would recommend a workshop with Linda to any organization. To reduce stress, encourage
team building and just to have fun!”

"In November, we had Linda Kash as our guest speaker at our monthly meeting focused on "Connecting on Purpose". She was an absolute delight - funny, yet so effective in getting us to more comfortable building and strengthening
our connections through interactive networking. Our event sold out quickly and the feedback from our members and guests was off the charts. This event also garnered much positive media attention for the Women's Business Network. We look forward to having her join us again."
Chair, IWD Organizing Committee
"We work in an industry where there is no right or wrong answer. All we offer is our ideas, thinking and recommendations. Our ability presenting to clients is key to our success. Linda was invaluable in helping my team grow their skills in that area. She brought great insight and tools to help us all think on our feet, be creative and react to client questions and concerns. The energy and enthusiasm in the room was infectious and stayed with the entire team long after. It gave everyone a new level of confidence that I believe has made us all better."
Rick Kemp, Brand Health
Linda Kash attended our first retreat after a three year hiatus.
In a room of 70 mixed level leaders from Managers to Directors and President, Linda brought comfort, humour and very timely lessons about staying in the moment even when it’s difficult.
Linda was effortless in her engagement with our leaders, and wasted no time eliciting laughs and moments of connection and insight.
We needed Linda. We needed to laugh, be reminded that we can move forward from tough times and we can do it together.
I strongly recommend working with Linda!
