With more than 25 years in business leadership and team development, Linda will teach us how to increase productivity, boost revenue, and redefine our approach to achieving our goals. Her growth-minded, solution-oriented vantage point – she calls it “the view from 10,000 feet” – will enable you to focus on your unlimited potential!Mimi Klosterman virtual assistant
