Gigi Rosenberg Podcast: Telling Personal Stories from the Stage

With host Gigi Rosenberg and guest Linda Cohen

Episode Description:

Years ago, when Linda Cohen launched a speaking career on the topic of Kindness, nobody thought it would fly. Flash forward, she’s now the “kindness catalyst,” and has created a successful business as a professional speaker and consultant focusing on the ROI of Kindness.

Linda’s superpower is her ability to share personal stories from the stage.

Join Gigi as she interviews Cohen about how she mustered the nerve to show up in downtown Portland, Oregon to interview strangers on everyday kindness, her best advice on launching a speaking career and how to engage your audience with authenticity and a roll of toilet paper.

Linda is past president and board member of the National Speaker Association, Oregon Chapter. Her second book, The Economy of Kindness: How Kindness Transforms Your Bottom Line was published in October 2021.
