TRAVERSE CITY: On Wednesday, April 12, Grand Traverse Woman presents the luncheon lecture: A Mountain of Courage – Inspiring Change.

Philosopher, executive and world champion sailor Linda Lindquist-Bishop asks us: Where are you now? Where do you want to go? How are you going to get there? Whether we have a crystal clear vision for “what’s next” or merely a sense that “there must be more” it will require us to make a change and change is hard.

Working with start-ups to multi-national corporations, non-profits, the military, government and high-performance sports teams, Linda has helped countless organizations and individuals create extraordinary futures. Linda has blazed trails in the all-male world of offshore yacht racing, sailing on over 100 teams in the past 30 years. Making history as a member of America3, the first all-women’s team to compete in the America’s Cup, she thrives in high-risk, stretch-goal environments. Winning two world championships, she continues to compete successfully in sailing at the international level.

Linda never tires of the challenge or the sweet taste of victory. Her experience includes marketing & sales executive, magazine publisher, sponsorship director, sports property president and entrepreneur.

She now owns Courageous Thinking Inc. in Traverse City, a consultancy that inspires, facilitates and coaches change that transforms businesses, communities, teams and lives to achieve meaningful success. She also guides companies to achieve successful exits as a certified NAVIX Exit Planning consultant.

Linda spoke for TEDx in May 2014 and here’s what she has to say about it: “Giving a TEDx talk is a challenging adventure! It has been rewarding and inspiring to hear from attendees that my talk gave them language, and a visual image, for where they are in their own journey of change.”

Tickets: The luncheon is 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hagerty Center in Traverse City. Lunch tickets are $30 or 2 for $50.

We also have vendor booths available at the event for $185 (includes 2 lunch tickets). Vendor Bonus: Two Men and a Truck help our vendors load and unload their goods at no cost!
