Linda Patten

President, Dare 2 Dream with Linda

Linda Patten, MBA in Organizational Behavior and Management, RN, Certified Meeting Manager, has always been a dreamer and a leader. She has been developing leaders for over 40 years and understands that daring to lead takes courage – that daring to dream takes vision.

With extensive experience in guiding leaders, Linda has developed programs and seminars for individuals, both within organizations as well as for independent business owners, to take them on a journey of self-discovery.

Linda has traveled throughout the United States and Europe while addressing audiences from as small as five to as large as 500.

Linda began speaking at the age of 7. As an adult, she was selected as a speaker for the Army Speaking Team in New England and recruited female high school seniors. When she was recruited to take on a basic training officer role, she received a commendation medal for her redesign of the training curriculum. As the only female protocol officer, she created inspired events for the 4-Star General who was the Commander of Training and Doctrine Command. Through her expertise, she brought together academics from Germany and Israel to discuss their perspective on World War II.

As a speaker and training leader, audiences worldwide have said that Linda is “fun,” “energetic.” “educational,” “an incredible leader,” and “speaks from the heart.”
