About Linda Beggs
Linda Beggs is a facilitator focused on helping organizations and individuals work better together to produce results. Through the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator—the most widely used personality assessment on the market—Linda creates a fun and safe environment where individuals can understand their own personality preferences and leverage them to boost their own performance and satisfaction. Participants regularly report improved team communication, conflict resolution, and project management from the knowledge and insights gained from her workshops.
Linda also partners with Pritchett & Associates to deliver their standard-setting workshops on navigating organizational change. Given the volatility of many markets, becoming adept at managing change has become a core competency. Through the Pritchett workshops, individuals and leaders learn how to ‘face reality and do what works’ and develop a change-adaptive corporate culture.
Linda’s extensive client list includes Honda, Pepsi, Cobb County School System, Citibank, Lockheed Martin and many others.
Linda is active in her community in Marietta Georgia, serving on various boards and committees including Mentoring for Leadership, NW Georgia YWCA Women of Achievement, and Marietta High School PTA. She is a graduate and past chair of Leadership Cobb. She enjoys studying with the Anne Hudgins Shakespeare Class. Linda is a proud graduate of the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business.
About Paulo Sibaja
Paulo’s experiences early in his career have given him a unique outlook. As a substitute teacher he saw firsthand how limiting choice and control for parents, students, and teachers prevents our education system from equipping the next generation with the skills they need to succeed. As an entrepreneur, he witnessed the 2008 financial crisis and how Washington’s bureaucratic, special interest-dominated approach came up so short when the challenges for real American families were so large. Paulo believes our leaders can and must do better.
Paulo has also worked as Legislative Director for Assemblyman Brian Nestande. He served as the legislator’s top public policy advocate and representative. Paulo also worked for Senator Jim Nielsen, serving as his point person managing spending priorities in a $65 billion budget that oversaw education. Paulo was the Colorado Deputy State Director as well as the Colorado Strategic Hispanic Initiatives Director for the Republican National Committee (RNC). He is currently the Chairman for Latino National Republican Coalition (NRC)-Colorado and a Hispanic Advisory Board member for the Colorado Republican Party.
Previously, Paulo was the Director of Coalitions for the Leadership Institute (LI), one of the nation’s premier organizations responsible for training activists, students, and leaders. In 2012, Paulo was Deputy Coalitions Director in Colorado for Mitt Romney for President and State Director of Hispanic Outreach-New Mexico, for the RNC. His main priority was to connect the candidate and the Republican Party to key demographics, including Hispanics.
Paulo has been quoted in the LA Times, Washington Post, Associated Press, and others, and has been published in the Orange County Register and other online publications. He has appeared multiple times on different radio and television stations across the country. He delivers a conservative message in Spanish too, having been on Univision’s “Al Punto con Jorge Ramos.”
