Linda is an established entrepreneur and started her first business upon leaving university in 1998. In 2001 Linda became a Director of an ISP business in Manchester, England and contributed to its successful growth both financially and structurally until 2007 when she sold her shares and branched out into Web Development, SEO, Sales and Marketing and PR specialising in the legal and finance sectors. Linda is actively involved in charity work and is a dedicated committee member of the Boot Out Breast Cancer Charity where her role includes raising awareness of the cause, monitoring the web presence, social media, promotional material, and press releases. Alongside this, Linda has become actively involved as Social Media Lead, in promoting and raising awareness for Inspirational Women through the Inspire Women Awards. Working closely with a specialist team, she is responsible for highlighting the achievements of women in business, women in industry, and women in general. Whilst more women are taking leadership roles, there is still a long way for equality to go – it is important that women don’t limit themselves and more important than ever for women to have a voice.
