Linda Larsen, CSP has been helping people worldwide upgrade their thinking, improve their communication and, simply stated, get 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 annual conferences. From her largest audience of 17,000 for the Future Farmers of America to her smallest group of 100 for Meals on Wheels, Linda’s goal is to make her meeting planner look like a rock star, give her audiences a phenomenal experience and be the easiest, most well-prepared speaker her clients ever work with.

Linda’s passion and spontaneous humor stem from over 20 years as a professional actress in film, television and on the legitimate stage. Her experience and training (she holds a Bachelor of Social Work from the University of south Florida and a Master of Fine Arts from Florida State University) 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 performing in comedies along side Sid Caesar, Beau Bridges or Ed Harris (OK, maybe he’s not so funny….) 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.

Her critically acclaimed book,, True Power, is the riveting and true story of how she was kidnapped and held at gunpoint by an escaped convict for over 5 hours. Her escape, and the positive, practical strategies she used to rise above one of life’s most potent challenges led Investor’s Business Daily to feature her in its Leaders & Success column. And yes, she can even tell THIS story with moments of strategically placed humor.

Linda is the author of 5 video programs, and 2 audio programs, including the popular 12 Secrets to High Self-Esteem, which has sold over 80,000 copies to date. She has also written or been featured in over 100 articles in such publications as The Chicago Tribune, Opportunity World, Women In Business, Woman’s Day, and Personal Excellence.

She is a member of the National Speakers Association and is a Certified Speaking Professional, an earned designation awarded by the National Speakers Association and the International Federation for Professional Speakers to recognize demonstrated commitment to the speaking profession through proven speaking experience. Less than 200 women worldwide hold this designation.

She lives in beautiful Sarasota, Florida with her meteorologist husband, 4 dogs, 1 cat and Buster the Big Alligator.

The Imperatively Important Pursuit of Happiness
Our forefathers had it right. They said we all have the right to "Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." Notice they didn't say "Life, liberty, and the pursuit of drudgery. Or "Life, liberty and who cares about happiness." And why include "happiness" in their list of demands? Because the benefits of living a life wherein you and the people around you are happy are tremendous.
Gripers, Complainers, and Whiners. Oh, My! How to Deal with Chronically Cranky People (Attitude, Conflict Resolution)

The Extreme Performance Makeover Going from Satisfactory to Stupendous
(This has also been titled: The Extreme Attitude Makeover)Linda kept hearing, "I have great people. They are fighting a really tough market, and they are feeling stressed, burned out and overwhelmed. And unfortunately those feelings are showing up in their attitude and their performance. I need something that will 1) let them know how much we appreciate and value them, 2) be motivating, entertaining and make them feel absolutely great, and 3) actually give them valuable, lasting tools for continued performance improvement." Flying into action, she created this extremely fun and content-rich presentation that has rapidly become one of her most requested.
