Why Clients Chose Linnita

Director of Institutional Advancement Engagement Services

UMUC

“Each year, I attempt to identify a crowd-pleasing emcee for this event. This person has to be someone who can deliver important remarks, keep the crowd energized and stay flexible throughout the event for last minute twists and turns- Linnita exceeded my expectations- needing almost no guidance. She memorized her remarks, mingled with the crowd and made the audience feel engaged during the program. I look forward to working with her again soon. I highly recommend her for speaking engagements.”

“She was amazing!  Linnita was not only professional, but she was engaging with the audience.  She was open in sharing some of her experiences in relating them to the event.  I would absolutely want to have her host or be part of future events.”

Javai Evans

Washington Redskins Cheerleader

“On the day of the event, she was professional, personable, and most importantly motivating. In a room full of woman who were about to embark upon the journey towards the dream of becoming a Washington Redskins Cheerleader, she easily grabbed our attention. She honed into several tips, which would mentally prepare us to show our own unique value and our best selves to the judges. Most importantly, she valued and demonstrated an understanding of the goal at hand. Ultimately, the women that shared in the experience echoed Linnita’s energy and words throughout our weeklong audition process. I would certainly recommend her services for public and motivational speaking. ”

“Linnita is a phenomenal speaker! She lifted my spirits to where not only could I accomplish any goal as a dancer, but also in life. Linnita’s authenticity and zestful tone complimented her message well. There is no doubt that her catch phrase “I Go H.A.R.D” will stick with all of those who attended her session to trigger a boost of encouragement when we find ourselves in tough times. She left me eager to hear her speak again!”

“Walking into a room full of beautiful and talented women at an audition can be intimidating, even for someone with all the same qualifications. It takes a certain confidence to put yourself out there in that type of scenario. Linnita Hosten helped give me the confidence to do just that. Linnita gave a motivational speech to all the women who were thinking about auditioning to become a Washington Redskins Cheerleader. During her speech, I began to feel so empowered! Her words inspired us and encouraged us to be proud of our accomplishments.”

One Step Closer

“Linnita spoke to my Summer Externship Program this year and blew their minds. She spoke on Personal Branding and tied it with Resume building. She gives off 110% at everything she does. Linnita will bring the fun and energy with her, no need to try to pump up your audience before she arrives, she will do it for you.”

Teacher

Greenbelt Middle School

“I loved Linnita’s demonstration of carrying excess baggage and how it can slow you down! This is was great for the students to see and learn because even at the middle school age students have some pressures (baggage) that they are carrying, which prevents them from truly excelling in school. Excellent and highly recommended!”
