The Voice That Means Business: Creating a Vocal Image That Improves Your Bottom Line You are proficient in the language of your business, but your voice is the tool that determines the extent of your success. If you want to develop a voice that means business, gets business, and keeps business, this is the keynote for you! During this dynamic program, you will conduct a “Vocal Audit” to identify your assets and liabilities; earn interest on your vocal power by investing small amounts of time to practice; reap the dividends of identifying and using your unique voice.

Voices, Vices, and Victories: How to Talk Yourself Into the Life You Deserve We all have them: those little voices in our head that steal our joy and keep us from our heart’s desires. They creep into our thoughts in the middle of the night, when we are about to try something new, or when we’re feeling tired or stressed out. The good news is that we have the right to talk back to these gremlins … and watch them disappear! In this entertaining, yet powerful keynote, Linda shares (in character!) the top ten negative voices we experience (such as the Critic and the Victim), and offers practical and do-able techniques to talk back with authority!

Shape Up Your Voice or Ship Out Your Career: Top 10 Tips to Tone Up Your Vocal Power You spend hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars working to get your body into shape, but are you overlooking a very critical part of your fitness program? Until your VOICE is in shape, you are not totally toned up — and it can have a dramatic impact on your career! This is an interactive program, in which Linda draws on her background as a Master Trainer with Interactive Fitness Trainers of America to create metaphors between personal and vocal fitness. Audiences have fun learning how to maintain vocal wellness; exercise vocal variety to motivate, educate, and persuade; and create a consistently confident, credible vocal image.
