Client's Testimonials

Teachers College, Columbia University

Linda Provenza is an extraordinary trainer. I know of her extensive expertise from over ten years of collaborations and co-trainings. Linda is equally well-grounded in conflict negotiation and mediation training as in peace education, both of which we have co-taught together at Teachers College, Columbia University. She also has expertise in facilitating political theater trainings and workshops based on the Theater of the Oppressed work of Augusto Boal, and the TOPLAB of New York City. Linda is excellent at planning and facilitating short workshops, intensives, and extended trainings. She is especially astute at sensing a learning group’s relationship to the material–she is attuned to the pulse of the participants and wisely discerns arising issues and conflicts. Linda is brilliant at facilitating these unplanned concerns, which often become high points of the course. She is reliable, organized, attentive to details, and sensible, yet flexible and able to improvise when needed. Not only is Linda an exceptional facilitator-trainer, she is an extraordinary human being. Her warmth and sensitivity, her thoughtfulness and easy energy, combine to create a special sensibility in each experience with her. She is someone who demonstrates passion in all she does. Her dedication to contributing to a transformed world shines through all her accomplishments.
