Global Linkages, a management and consulting firm, which spearheads sustainable partnership deals for businesses, governments and organizations has been operating for nearly two decades. Principal Lorna K. Johnson recently sat down with AFKInsider to discuss the firm’s work and transitional focus.

We think that’s our biggest issue — convincing people.”
