Official Testimonials

Linda Moir is regularly booked to engage audiences at events, read their latest feedback below:

“Oh boy. If you want a speaker who hits the sweetspot for keynotes (huge fan, but real business takeaways too) then book Linda. I heard her talk at a conference (where I was a fellow speaker and MC) and didn’t envy her being the fourth speaker of four. You’ve got to hold the audience when you’re last up. Her talk about all the fun she had sorting out customer experience at Virgin, and then masterminding the Gamesmakers at London 2012, combined charm and humour with some instantly implementable takeaways. And the best thing? Linda made us all feel as if her material was hot off the press, especially for us- not a hint that she delivered it before. I’d happily have sat through it again… and how often do you find yourself thinking that?”


“Linda delivered such a superb session- it struck a chord with so many people in the room; really relevant for our team!”


“There is you before and a new you after you hear Linda Moir speak. Her enthusiasm was given to all of the attendees of the event, her passion for getting the best of a brand and make valuable contributions with ‘small’ actions. I feel honoured to have been able to be at the Insight Panama event and meet this wonderful woman. You truly inspired everyone that day, thank you!”
