Having completed two school blocks, Linda has handed the Haitian projects over to the local community and is now working with the Cluny network implement a new global development plan.
When she's not working on extra-curricular development projects, Linda consults public sector organisations on their digital service transformation initiatives, specialising in collaborative service redesign across multiple local authorities.
