Linda Guirey is a real champion!  She is incredibly insightful, positive, upbeat and highly motivational. She has truly transformed my life with her skills as a life coach.

Linda Guirey as Keynote Speaker:

I have had the pleasure of listening to and being inspired by Linda when I invited her to speak at a Venus Networking Lunch. Linda’s passion and enthusiasm for her content and for inspiring people oozes from her. She has a natural and relatable style of presenting. She engages her audience and entertains them as she pulls stories from her life to emphasis the teaching points she is making. A highly energised and dynamic speaker. – Vanessa Davey, Venus Network

I know that people of any age and from all walks of life would  enjoy listening to you.  Entertainment with a message is often hard to find and you are certainly a master of that.” – Rahiri Club, June 2013

“After hearing Linda speak at the recent NZ CA (Chartered Accountants) conference our Partners invited her to speak to the whole team at RSM Prince.   Linda’s presentation was enlightening, inspirational & had everyone in fits of laughter (accountants do love to laugh) while hanging on to every word. Thank you Linda for showing us how to effectively utilise the power we each have over the choices we have in life…”       – RSM Prince (May 2013)

“An extremely well presented session, with a good message.  It was very entertaining and thought provoking – absolutely awesome.”     – NZCA (Chartered Accountants) conference (April 2013)

Linda’s topic was so interesting and amazingly helpful and was delivered in a warm open manner.  Having been alerted to the fact that I could do something about some of my worries I was increasingly aware I had decisions to make.   I was more aware I had the license to make choices.  License and responsibility to make Choices in harmony with my personal values and goals and acknowledging others who may be involved. It provided a new perspective that I have found very helpful. – Amicus, Tauranga (2013)

A huge thank you for a fabulous evening it was fantastic and so good for all of us to take a good look at ourselves and you sure made us do that and also made us realise it is really up to us what we make of our lives no matter how hard it may be . I have had some great feedback already and – you will come highly recommended from us. – Auckland Ladies Business Club (October 2012)

Linda Guirey was guest speaker at our recent AGM, when she addressed approximately 70 members of the club.  Linda was warm, enthusiastic, humorous and stimulating, promoting a very positive response in her audience. She encouraged much thought and discussion among those present about different personality types, what is important in their lives and how to make and implement the correct decisions for them personally.   Without exception, those present found Linda’s talk both entertaining and inspirational and her message will have provided much food for thought in making choices in the future - Jill Doull, Secretary, Kotuku Garden Club, Omokoroa  (May 2012)

Linda Guirey is an amazing woman who speaks from the heart.  She captivates her audience with humour and integrity, and her innovative Mad Marbles toolkit provides a simple yet effective means of understanding and engaging with people, and building meaningful relationships both in business and social circles.  Don’t miss this woman, you owe it to yourself to hear her speak! – The Palaver Network Team – May 2012

I would like to thoroughly recommend Linda Guirey as a motivational speaker.  We were humbled by her honesty as she shared her experiences with us.  She gave the participants much to think about as she challenged their thinking about how they should consider making major decisions in their lives.  Her communication styles were enlightening, we were delighted with her marbles and I know that members have gone home to carry out these experiments on the other Rural Women members.  We all learned a lot about ourselves and each otherCommunication and Leadership Seminar August 2011 – Marilyn Hutchings, Organiser, Rural Women New Zealand

“Linda’s title (‘The Marbles Expert’) is a great hook and insight into her sense of humour!  I heard Linda speak at a National Speakers Association event.  Linda’s story telling and delivery was hilarious.  It was absolutely captivating throughout.  Linda is a natural – she had no idea she was such a comedienne!  You need to book her!” - Jenny Wilmshurst, Social Media Strategist  & Consultant, August 22, 2010

“Linda is made for a speaking career, and some would say she is made for a stand-up comics career too, but either way, her message is clear, and her use of humour is brilliant.  A great session.  Thanks.” - Linda Coles – Blue Banana Ltd (business partner), July 4, 2010

“Funny, original, relevant – Linda is one of the best speakers I’ve heard, and a great MC, too.”Clare Feeney, Director, Environmental Communications Ltd, September 28, 2010
