Linda Andross

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
A full eight hours of sleep

What is your greatest fear?
That I will never have the time to finish all the books I want to read

Which person, living or dead, do you most admire?
Ah Jeez! There are so many and the list is way too long! But hopefully they all know who they are!  One person I admire is Hillary Clinton. Like her or not, I’m not sure I could have taken the public bashing she has and still been able to keep head up and moving forward.

What do you consider the most overrated virtue?
Righteousness

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?
Always. One more thing.

What is your greatest regret?
Well there was that time I totally messed up a new business presentation (sorry, potential client, but call me!). “Greatest” seems pretty big, and I’m pretty happy with things, so nothing to divulge to the IABC/Toronto audience right now.

Which talent would you most like to have?
The ability to read minds would make my life a lot easier!

What is the trait you most deplore in others?
Greed

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
To be more chill and not such a worrier

Professionally? Finding the courage and a great work-partner to make the leap to fully join the world of entrepreneurs and purchase APEX/ruckus Digital last year.

What made you join IABC/Toronto?
I wanted to (and have) meet people who were doing amazing work.

How do you participate in IABC/Toronto?
I was Chapter president a few years ago and this year I’m back on the board as VP, Finance and Association Management.

What do you most value in your colleagues?
Their amazing ability to always be optimistic and look good even when they have been out partying all night.

What is your greatest extravagance?
My kid.

If you were to die and come back as another person or thing, what would you be?
Carol Burnett or Amy Poehler

What do you think are the three most common mistakes made in business communication?

  1. a) Not asking the right questions
    b) Assuming you know more or better than the client
    c) Understanding strategy versus tactics

What would your dream job be?
I have it.

What is your motto?
It is what it is. Accept it and move on.
