"In my role as VP Professional Women's Network (PWN) Amsterdam, I've had contact with Lin since 2016. She has presented for us at two events and in conversation with me has shared many thoughts about networking. One of which recently culminated in an 'ah ha' moment! We were discussing her book "So you think you can't network', which I had given as a gift to a friend who struggles with networking. An example from Lin's book showed me the possibility that all my friend needs to do is to take her generous and knowledgeable heart to a networking event and know that she only needs to focus on how she can help the people she meets - without expecting anything in return. In the meantime, her help will be the connection to the other and to another etc. – a kind of chain reaction. Thank you for sharing this unique approach to the value of networking." Mary Jane Roy, Resilience and Happiness@Work specialist
"Lin was speaker at our Minerva 21 Netherlands event. Her speech/workshop was titled 'from collecting to connecting: accessing your network's resources'. She inspired the participants with the stories she told and examples she used. Her exercises were spot on, insightful and created an impact."
