Praises From Business Clients:
   “Linda, we are compelled to write you this letter to thank you for doing such an outstanding job at our recent Spring Conference in Chicago.  You were a smashing hit!  Our group loved both your presentations, ‘Learned Optimism’ and ‘Learned Charisma.’  It certainly was a joy watching and listening to you! We can’t wait to start putting  your material and suggestions into practice.”

Jim and Joyce, Mercon, J. Mercon & Company,
Valparaiso,  Indiana

   "Linda has motivated, inspired, and educated us on communication skills, positive attitude, goal setting, and service-minded strategies. She has spoken to membership sales personnel, nursery attendants, assistant managers, fitness instructors, personal trainers, and physical therapists. 
   A LINDA TALKS seminar is an experience with a WOW! statement. She sprinkles her presentations with many real life situations to colorfully illustrate a point and to add humor. She engages members of her audience through eye contact and/or verbal interactions. Her sincere concern and caring attitude about each individual is apparent and that creates trust with her audience. Most importantly, they have never failed to acquire and put into use valuable suggestions following her presentations. 
   Linda is one of the most popular and effective speakers we have experienced in our company."

Debra Lee, Director of Marketing, & Jan Matkozich, Manager,
The Gainesville Health and Fitness Centers, Gainesville, Florida

   “Linda has a powerful presence that engages you right from the beginning.  As an HR professional, I really embrace the concept that Linda espouses to focus on your individual strengths.  So many times we focus on an individual’s weakness and then spend time, money, and energy only to frustrate them.  The concepts she presents are dynamic and so applicable to any work environment.”

Anice R. Prosser, SPHR, Vice-President Human Resources, 
Envision Credit Union, Tallahassee, Florida

   “Thank you for your outstanding presentation to us on ‘Beyond Coping:  Thriving In the Face of Change.’ Your style was friendly, entertaining, and motivational.  
Your presentation helped us to associate ‘change’ with something good and beneficial for the future.  You pointed out that we need to ‘accept and adapt’ vs. ‘fret and fume’ because change is going to take place, often whether we want it or not. This is reality.   
I believe everyone left the room with a better understanding and approach to the word ‘change.’"

Tim Thompson, Director, Finance and Administrative Services, 
Clay Electric Cooperative, Florida

   “Linda Cirulli-Burton has an amazing energy level.  Her enthusiasm is contagious and she is able to get an audience fired up!  Her talks are meaningful to businesses that are experiences changes or growth in their industry.”

Barbara Searle, Director of Sales and Marketing, 
Cox Communications, Inc., Gainesville/Ocala, Florida

   “What a pleasure it was to have you speak at our manager’s meeting.  You did an excellent job of honing in on the areas that are important to our continued growth and development.  
I know that we gave you many issues to be addressed, but you did a superb job of putting all the information into a cohesive presentation.  I very much appreciate the effort that you put into researching our associates for their input and then utilizing that information as you developed your program.  
It is always exciting when a speaker presents real life ‘warts’ with so much humor and understanding.”

Jackie Carter, Customer Service Trainer,
US Cellular

   “You were such a hit that members thanked me for days afterward for bringing you to them.  Several said they thought you were speaking directly to them, and they took your message about developing our own personal charisma to heart.  Others said your upbeat delivery kept them buoyed and energetic for days afterward.  Personally I loved watching your energy build as you spoke to us, bringing everyone along with you to a state of high energy, good humor, and positivism.”

Lynda Ault, J.D., President, 
Women’s Council of Realtors

   “Thank you for the excellent presentation you gave to our Association last week.  It was both inspiring and educational and all that attended our meeting seemed to benefit from your view and perspective on our business.  In our line of work, we tend to spend so much time trouble shooting and taking care of the problems that we sometimes forget to be more pro-active in our day to day dealings with clients and associates.  Your speech really brought home the benefits of positive thinking and acting.”

Marilyn Marson, President, 
Mortgage Bankers Association of North Central Florida
