In the mid-1980s, Linda was training to be an Accountant and when faced with two job offers; one with an Accounting firm and the other in Finance with Lintas, she chose the latter. In 1989, Linda made her second career change and transferred from finance to media with Mitchell & Partners. From there, she moved onto JWT, Saatchi & Saatchi and Starcom and spent 17 years working on FMCG accounts.
In 2007, Linda made her third career change and joined the L&D unit with GroupM Asia/Pacific. It was an area she was passionate about having worked as the Macleay College Media Lecturer and being a Founding Member of the MFA Education Committee. At GroupM, she co-created over 25 workshops including an award-winning Leadership programme. Linda has worked in local and regional roles and speaks English, basic Cantonese and tourist Thai.
When she is not working, she loves travelling with her son. Highlights include; trekking in Nepal, snorkelling in the Galapagos and taking an icebreaker ship to Antarctica.
Linda’s favourite quote from a 1985 Vidal Sassoon ad is “If you don’t look good, we don’t look good.”
