About Lynda Paulson

“Your workshop was an unqualified success…sales and wine club conversion are high. If only we had done it sooner! Thanks for teaching us that ‘facts tell, stories sell.”

John Morris, Tasting Room Manager, Tablas Creek Vineyard

“I am a more effective speaker, a more creative speech writer, more at ease in delivering a message before a microphone, before a camera, and using a myriad of visual aids. I have even overcome my own personal monster—intimidation by the media. Thank you Lynda Paulson—The Public Person’s Miracle Worker!”

Sally Jordan, Jordan Vineyard & Winery

“I am happy to report that we doubled our wine club sign up goal after the workshop. We are off to a great start!”

Nicole Pattalochi, Director of Hospitality, Archery Summit Winery

“Public speaking is both an art and science. While professional techniques and tips are important to know, there is another important aspect to expressing ourselves to a group of people. Whether the goal is to inform, persuade, entertain or inspire, what we usually want to do more than anything else is to make people feel comfortable and interested in our message.”
