Lynda has spent the last 18 years enabling leaders, health professional and difference makers ito lead well, make tangible change, empower their people and improve patient experience.
She believes challenging times call on us to be courageous enough to explore the possible, to be kind enough to do no intentional harm, and to trust ourselves enough to make the contribution we’re here to make.

She is responsible for programme development as well as training delivery and coaching.
Lynda has a background in emergency care and was the RCN national lead for Emergency Nurses for 6 years. In her NHS career her leadership journey took her from ward to board. Lynda has worked also with boards of large organisations, charities and other emergency services on developing courageous leadership.
Lynda has authored a number of books in Emergency Care and Personal Development, she enjoys speaking at conferences, podcasts and online events.
Together with Brian, she is responsible for the ongoing social movement #EndPJ paralysis, which aims to reduce physical and psychological deconditioning, by sharing best practice and wisdom amongst health and social care professionals.
