—Robin Lail, Lail Vineyards

“I wish I’d had it years ago! Mandatory for anyone who communicates for a living.”
—Stephen R. Covey, Author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

“Lynda empowers people to express themselves in ways they didn’t know they were capable, creating confident, persuasive speakers. Her approach too is clear and direct, and her advice and recommendations extended with sensitivity and spot on accuracy. I sent my first team through Lynda’s Speaker’s Training more than ten years ago, my most recent team in early 2016. Lynda has only gotten better. Time spent in Lynda’s workshops pays dividends for years.” — Greg Ralston, General Manager of Wine Creek LLC
