Linda’s career has spanned 4 decades and throughout those years, she has been fortunate (and sometimes, not so fortunate) to have interviewed more than 2,000 people like President George W. Bush, Senator Ted Kennedy and Governor Ann Richards, Drew Barrymore, Sandra Bullock and Jessica Alba, Dennis Quaid, Richard Linklater and Robert Rodriguez to name a few. The traditional expert panel provides a lot of information, but this workshop will be unlike any you’ve ever attended. Join Linda where YOU are the seasoned pro and Linda will test your skills as you interview this “fading-middle-aged-startlett-turned-town-spokesperson-for the-Mayor of your town. Come prepared with 5 to 7 questions you must ask to v the most critical information your City has ever needed in this time of crisis or your choice.

Linda will share some valuable tips before the 1-on-1 interviews begin, so you’re as prepared as possible to interview the most difficult person you’re ever worked with. Please note: All interviews will be video-taped for playback and critique so bring you’re A-Game! Guest: Linda Litowsky, producer/director, Host: Victoria Timpanaro
