Testimonials

“I had the pleasure of working with Lynn when she was marketing director for The Open Group. She has an outstanding feel for effective marketing making use of traditional and modern (social) media, which is strengthened by her extensive contact network. She understands and utilizes viral marketing, which also has obvious cost advantages. She combines professionalism and drive with an infectious enthusiasm and a tremendous respect for people. This is very important in organizations like The Open Group, where most contributions are voluntary and the contributors always need to give priority to activities for their own employers. I would unhesitatingly recommend Lynn to any organization looking for marketing communications with a feel for the times in which we live.”
~ Stuart Boardman, Senior Business Consultant, KPN Consulting Nederland (11/’11)

“Lynn is a highly professional and effective marketing campaigner. She led the development of a successful global rebranding and re-launch for The Open Group, established a new corporate website, introduced a new social media campaign engaging multiple companies, and developed new media plans with Hotwire and Bateman Group agencies. This was significantly needed, and was very noticeable in terms of impact on the profession image improvement this had on The Open Group, particularly as it critically grew in the last year to include new Asia regions and growth of the brand enabled directly by her efforts.”

“I worked with Lynn for just over a year, on many projects that involved co-operation between Marketing and the Web. Although separated by time zones (me UK; Lynn west coast USA) she was always immensely flexible, allowing for a productive working relationship. 

I have every respect for Lynn’s skills in managing social networking, including our blog, Twitter, Facebook and Linked-in. Her efforts significantly raised the profile of our Web site and ultimately our company. Her attention to detail in vetting, writing and amending Web copy was also highly commendable and came to the fore when we launched a new Web site, when Lynn co-ordinated and managed large chunks of new pages. 

Throughout it all, she maintained a very co-operative and personable approach to all projects that we worked on together.”
~ John Bligh, Web Editor, The Open Group (11/’11)

“Lynn is an ideal client contact to work for because she articulates her expectations clearly, is very supportive and responsive.
