"This Fall, I had the honor of chairing the 2012 New England YMCA Fall Leadership Conference. This conference was attended by the top YMCA staff leaders in New England and Linda Dulye was one of our workshop presenters. Linda’s message of a Spectator-Free Workplace™ and her model for effective communication resonated with our attendees. Linda’s style was dynamic, engaging, and fun. Linda took the time to get to know her audience by participating in three conference calls prior to the workshop to plan her presentation to best meet the needs of the attendees. She also arrived a day prior to her presentation and participated in the workshop sessions and attended the meals to take some time to get a feel for the audience. Our conference committee was thrilled with her presentation, it was exactly what we were looking for. Linda has a wealth of experience to draw on in designing her presentation and the stories and examples that she sprinkled throughout her presentation kept the audience involved and thinking about ways to improve their performance. Linda was the MVP (Most Valuable Presenter) at our conference and I enthusiastically recommend her to any conference, business, or non-profit organization to share her knowledge, skills and talent."
Frank Kenneally, VP of Operations, Merrimack Valley YMCA and Chair of 2012 New England YMCA Fall Leadership Conference
"Linda Dulye is a true do-er! She takes the time to get to know your organization and address your needs head on. She is a great listener and is very observant to things spoken and unspoken. We employed her to be a keynote for a new accountable management meeting structure for our organization. She had several pre-meeting calls with our team and even came in a day early to meet with our senior leadership team. Linda was able to connect with them quickly and gained their trust as an expert in her field. At the meeting, Linda delivered with flying colors! Our managers were captivated by her fun, energetic style and they really understood her simple, yet powerful messages. What was most impressive about Linda was her ability to adapt on the fly. She listened to our CEO's presentation just before hers and was able to use our break to changes her slides to mimic what our CEO had spoken about. WOW! That was a definite delighter! Linda really helped us start momentum in our organization that was kinetic and will be easily sustainable through her customizable tools! I really look forward to working with Linda again in the future!"
