"Linda is one of the most solid process hosts I have had the privilege to work with. The bigger the group, the more at ease she gets. When the field starts to rock, she keeps her ground and brings her balance to the team holding it. She can navigate any context. She has a gift for nurturing relationships with a rare sense of respect and confidentiality."
