‘I have worked with Lynda and her team as both an employer and as a candidate. They are an exceptional team to deal with. Global Partnerships really understand the need to match people to companies, and they have the ability to find the right people in the market. Their integrity, tenacity and insights are what separate them from others in their field’.

‘I worked closely with Lynda on the recruitment of two new Non-Executive Directors for a major charitable organisation that I chaired. Lynda led a process that ensured a transparent and objective outcome, from a high quality and diverse list of candidates. The Board were very pleased with both the process and the result.'
Andrew Baxter - Chair, Australian Pork Limited, Senior Advisor KPMG, Former Chair of Lord Mayors Charitable Foundation
When I began working with Lynda as my executive coach, I had only just started in a fully appointed executive role. I felt competent in my role functionally, technically and as a senior manager. But considering the new dynamic of being an executive, working in an enterprise team, custodian of such strong influential position and navigating my relationships with board members and group executives was daunting. Although I was excited by the role and opportunity, my lack of experience at C level had me feeling less confident in my new environment and I didn’t quite appreciate the skills required.
In the our initial sessions Lynda was able to coach me through essential self-reflection which enabled me to recognise what was personally holding me back from understanding and appreciating my own capabilities that I already had for my role and beyond it. Lynda supported me with tools and insights that allowed me to develop my confidence, ability to regulate my own emotions before they hindered my confidence, be clear on my personal bias vs objectivity and learn that I earned my own voice at the executive table.
Over the last couple of years I know that my success in my personal and professional development growth has been directly influenced by the executive coaching relationship I have with Lynda and would highly recommend the services she provides to support anyone wanting to be the best they can be in any aspect or level in their careers.

‘Lynda is a deeply experienced executive search practitioner and one of the most authentic that I have had the pleasure to work with. She has shown a genuine respect and empathy in understanding and tailoring her approach to my current circumstances as a candidate. Her style is honest yet considered, and she has generously provided wise counsel to me on multiple occasions. Lynda has a unique talent to look beyond people's skills and experience to their underlying motivations and drivers, enabling better organisational fit and longer term success. She also sees the potential in people beyond labels, and understands from experience how to find candidates who can move laterally or outside conventional pathways to add value. As an employer, I would value her integrity and her ability to bring something different to an assignment that would challenge the organisation's conventional thinking’.
