Linda Lynch-Johnson – Change Consultant, Speaker and Author
Linda Lynch-Johnson says that, “The only thing you can truly count on is change.” She is a change guru, helping us learn to plan for change and how to handle it. She teaches how to thrive during change using her trademarked ‘The Adapter Factor.’ Linda brings personal insight and humor to her expertise in adapting through her years of constant moving and traveling where she learned to transform her knowledge into useful information. This knowledge was put to the test during her four years living in Saudi Arabia. She had to learn how to adapt quickly and went on to thrive and is now helping others do the same no matter what cultural environment they deal with – business or foreign.
