A Consummate Professional

“I have had the pleasure of working with Lin at both Ketchum and Wells Fargo. She has supported me in working the envisionment and execution of a transformational value proposition/positioning strategy at Ketchum, and the development and execution of a major restructuring at WF to support the implementation of a re-imagined organization that unleashes a modernized best practice approach to internal and external communications and brand management. She is a cheerleader on the tough days of change management, and a guide to helping bring talent along throughout the process. She is also a joy to work with.”

Exceptional at Positioning Leaders to Exceed Expectations

“Lin was my executive coach. She helped me to grow and mature in areas that are critical for very senior executives – navigating and assessing the political landscape within your organization, and how to walk the fine line (particularly as a woman) between being decisive and being collaborative. She forced me to address things about myself that were not easy, but she did it with great compassion and humor. And I’ve taken her lessons and advice with me to my current company, so it’s really paid dividends. Thank you, Lin!”
