About the author:
In 2005 Linda threw off her corporate ties to take her passion and belief that "Now is a Great Time for Change," after over twenty years of corporate, in-house, Governmental, institutional, international training, it was time for her to travel the world simplifying the scary prospect and process of personal change. She has motivated audiences throughout the UK and Europe to Saudi Arabia and UAE.
Her inspirational life from "a fat bullied child," to "an adult with a lot of time behind prison gates," to an elegant, eloquent, confident public speaker shares her personalized message and practical ways to simplify personal change possibilities for anyone, who wants to make the effort to break out and have more in their life.
Linda's middle class upbringing in England was not at a time when self-development was even considered, but her mother being "light years ahead of her time" fired up a passion for "being whatever you want to be," but the full understanding of this passion did not come until many decades and heartaches later.
Linda's empathy and understanding of struggle both professional and personal has fueled her passion for learning from others and in turn empowering others. There are many bullies, negative wizards and hob nail boots to trample on our aspirations, but learning that we have to power to shrug off their influence and have the life we choose, is personal freedom. Confident communication is a cornerstone to improving self worth.
Her successful book Personal Coaching for Change, has provided many arr ha moments for readers and her second book From a Whale to a Woman, shows her personal journey through food demons and through her own achievement how she has helped and supported thousands of others.
As founder of Linda Sage Mentoring and Elite Speakers, Linda has created and facilitates many seminars for Powerful Presentations, Personal Change, Criminal Minds, Elite Speaking, Speaking Like a Champ and Self Talk is the Key to Personal Understanding. Clients have included Hilton Hotels, Sheraton Hotel, Institute of Administration, Saudi Arabia; Princess Noura University, Medicare UAE, Aguagest, NAS Air, Emirates Airline and British Aerospace.
From a Whale to a Woman
This book is Linda's personal journey and battle with all the issues surrounding weight, mentally and physically dealing with boundaries and associations of food. A very open and honest account of not just my life but how it has knock-on consequences with others.
Also, through mentoring and helping thousands of others and hearing that many of their stories were similar to mine, helped me realise we have so much in common. I have tried to be practical in the first part of the book, and give my story in the second part, maybe one or both will help you take that first step towards the change that you. Unfortunately there are no magic wands, potions or pills that can give you the desired effect of immediate weight loss, but there is another way, your way, for you and because you are worth the effort.
I hope you enjoy my journey and maybe it will open your thoughts, to achieve your aims and goals too
