Linda Tate

Linda Tate's agency, The Tate Gallery Pty Ltd, is known as a “people gallery” because she has represented a galaxy of sports celebrities, media people, actors and writers. Preferring to work behind the scenes, she negotiates book deals, speaking engagements and media appearances for her clients, maintains their professional diaries and offers practical advice and moral support. A former manager with Harry M. Miller’s company, Linda's gallery of writers includes Valerie Parv AM, with whom she has worked for over 20 years. Linda’s maxim was inspired by Calvin Coolidge: “Talent won’t conquer all, it’s persistence and determination which counts at the end of the day.”
