Midwest Athletic Association of the Deaf has asked Linsay Darnall, Jr. to serve as parliamentarian at several meetings in Omaha, Council Bluffs, and Lincoln. He invested time and words to ensure that MAAD has a smooth meeting by offering tips in Robert's Rule of Order and other procedures. Without his help and support, MAAD would not have had successful meetings.
-Paige Thompson-Matzker, MAAD Commissioner, St. Louis, MO
Linsay Darnall Jr. is an exceptional speaker, who inspires Deaf students to be all that they can be. Linsay was the 2009 graduation speaker for our school, The Learning Center for the Deaf. Our senior class chose him and they could not have chosen a better person. Linsay's speech was a perfect blend of "congratulations and challenge" for our graduates and their guests. Rave reviews were heard from all, who attended. I highly recommend Linsay as an inspirational speaker.
-Michael J. Bello, President and Executive Director, The Learning Center for the Deaf, Framingham, MA
Linsay Darnall Jr., was asked to facilitate a day-long retreat for our board members. He invested time and energy to build us into an effective team. The session Linsay provided us was outstanding, due to his numerous years of leadership experience. All of us were left with eagerness to get down to business and put our vision into action. Thank you, Linsay, for everything!

As Living Historian
Linsay Jr. has a vast amount of experience working with students of all ages. His passion for sharing his love of history both of Deaf individuals and of America as a whole, leads to fascinating lessons and anecdotes. He is a phenomenal storyteller who captivates his audiences. His precise and clear communication style makes for a mesmerizing educational experience. I highly recommend Linsay Jr. for your classroom or school assembly.

The audience is guaranteed a stellar and highly entertaining show from the minute Linsay Darnall Jr., steps onstage to when he exits. In each and every one of the many performances we have seen from him, even the repeat ones, he has never failed to entertain us with his wide variety of stories. We have yet to meet a person who has been lucky enough to see one of Darnall's performance and not like it.

As ASL Mentor
When Linsay lifts his hands, words come to life. Whether he's painting a landscape, resurrecting a moment in history, or creating poetry from difficult philosophical concepts, his work is art at its finest and communication at its clearest. A true king of communication, the brightest jewel in his crown is the ability to show students and professionals the ‘how to’ of his royal magic.
-Connie A. Herndon, neRID President, Lincoln, NE
As an interpreter trainer, sign language linguist and certified interpreter, I have found a valuable collaborator in Linsay Darnall, Jr. of Darnall Consulting.

I highly recommend the use of this business to those who wish to improve their interpreting and linguistic skills.
