"We have engaged Linda Sharkey a number of times in recent years to address our clients at various functions. Whether she is delivering a workshop or presenting a short session, her depth of knowledge in combination with her global business experience ensures that our clients gain enormous insight into how they may translate her thoughts, advice and ideas into their own organisations. She is a generous speaker in terms of taking time to really understand the needs of each group she is addressing and many of our clients have commented on how accessible her delivery style is.
