Profile Information

Refirement Network- South Africa

Wisdom Preserver and Connection Specialist

Lynda has a passionate love of people and the development of future leaders. She is a master networker, innovator and big picture thinker. Her current role is building a new business called Refirement Network. This network is helping organisations and baby boomers ( those born between 1946 and 1966) to understand the opportunities and challenges that the future holds for this demographic group. Please visit for more details.

Lynda has vast business experience and has travelled extensively both locally and internationally. It is this diverse experience that makes her an ideal project person. Her ability to see through traditional boundaries and bring the uniqueness of different areas together to create something superb is world class.

For a period of ten years, Lynda developed and ran an educational business, Educational School Supplies. In the early 90’s, she sold this business and joined Smile Education to grow a direct sales division. She was awarded the National Business Woman of the Year award in 1994. She then joined the head office team at Smile Education and helped build the company, which was awarded the status of being a top 20 Non-Listed Company in 1998 and 1999. She served as Sales and Marketing Director, and then as International Director of this Company. In 2002, she chose to leave to further her personal passion.

Lynda has a passion for children, women in leadership and understanding how we as South Africans can unlock skill development and help grow the economy. The social landscape of South Africa will be influenced by all South Africans understanding how important it is to play an active role in the development of the future generation.

Over the past four years she has helped grow the MySchool program throughout South Africa. This program assists schools with funding on a sustainable basis. More than one and half million is paid across to schools every month.

Lynda has two adult children who have kept her grounded. Many of the lessons I have learnt have been through parenting and helping my children understand the world we now live in. I consider them my greatest lesson that life has given me. They are also my greatest blessing.

She lists her hobbies as reading, life long learning, theatre, movies and socialising with a wide group of friends and family. She has a passion for travel both locally and internationally.

9/11 St Pauls Church over the road from Ground Zero.

I visited the Garden of Rememberance in Newtown where my sister lives as well as Ground Zero in 2007.

I was touched by both places in such a deep way.

Today I remember this event with your Nation and pray for the families whose lives were changed instantly that day.

Where were you that day and what changed about your worldview as a reult of that event?

Here in South Africa we too have lived through history and change.

" Be the change you want to see… Continue

Nelson Mandela turns 92- volunteer 67 minutes

There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.

Nelson Mandela

Today Nelson Mandela celebrates his 92nd birthday. It is also the first global day of donating 67 minutes of your time in honor of this great man. The “67″ represents the number of years he served the Nation of South Africa. This morning on the news I heard that the success of the Soccer World… Continue
