Linda Larsen has been helping people worldwide upgrade their thinking, improve their communication and achieve much better quality results in life, both personally and professionally. And she does this in such extraordinarily fun, fast-paced and memorable ways that she is sought after around the globe by meeting planners looking to blow people’s socks off at their virtual, in-person or hybrid events!
Linda’s passion and spontaneous humor stems from over 20 years as a professional actress in film, television and on the legitimate stage. Her experience and training give her the unique ability to combine the entertaining, dynamic aspects of live theater with practical, high-value content to produce lasting, positive changes.
What makes Linda so sought after is her “Funny Factor”. Maybe it comes from just having a bit of a whimsical, skewed look at the world, but Linda can find humor, comedy and hilarity in almost any situation and is more than happy to share that perspective with her audiences. The result? People REMEMBER information that is set to a backdrop of laughter and fun.
Your presentations were among the best received for our 3 day conference! Attendees found you to be funny, insightful, energetic, motivational and much, much more! You truly engaged our audience and they left the room feeling they had the ‘Power to Perform’. As a meeting planner, I truly appreciate your quick responses, clear communication of expectations and needs and for making me look like a star planner. You were fabulous!

And yes, she can even tell this story with moments of strategically placed humor.
