This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Philosopher, executive & world champion sailor Linda Lindquist-Bishop inspires and equips us to embrace change as access to the extraordinary.

She asks us - Where are you now? Where do you want to go? and 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 to create their 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. Winning two world championships she thrives in high-risk, stretch-goal environments. Making history as a member of America3, the first all-women's team to compete in the America's Cup, she continues to compete successfully in sailing at the international level. Linda
never tires of the challenge of and sweet taste of victory. Her diverse experience including marketing & sales executive, magazine publisher, sponsorship director, sports property president and entrepreneur, uniquely qualifies her to lead Courageous Thinking Inc.; a consultancy that inspires, facilitates and coaches change that transforms businesses, communities, teams and lives to achieve meaningful success.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
