  • That weekend in the beautiful Berkshires of Massachusetts changed my life. Linda Dulye, as well as, the amazing people she assembled to create the Dulye Leadership Experience, help me find my passion. At the DLE I decided I wanted to become a financial advisor. Over the past two years, Linda and the DLE community have helped me achieved my goal. Now at the age of 24 years. I’m a fully licensed financial advisor studying for his CFA Level 1." - Marcus Coleman, Registered Client Service Associate, Raymond James
  • The DLE Gen Now will help you take your career to the next level, no matter which industry you are in, or how much experience you have. You will be inspired, challenged, and coached by a diverse network of professionals who can offer everything from leadership training to financial advice. You will leave the weekend motivated to prepared to be a better professional and person — and have a whole team of people in your corner, cheering you on and holding you accountable for years to come!" - Danielle Waugh, Investigative Reporter, WPEC
  • I don’t say this often, but the Dulye Leadership Experience was easily one of the most life-altering events to happen in my life. I knew I had the skills needed to be successful, but this weekend-long program was the catalyst for putting it all together and working in a way that allowed me to thrive in not only my professional life but my personal life as well. Over the course of a weekend, I learned how to sharpen my networking skills, be confident around others, learn to keep track of my finances, and how to collaborate and be a valued voice in the room." - Jesse Noll, Manager of Content & Experiences, Wavemaker
  • It never ceased to amaze me how the DLE has been a magnet for people all over the country; all of whom share a similar desire to build community, experience growth and give back." - Cam Besse, DLE Advisory Board Member, Account Executive, Berkshire Fairfield Insurance Agency
  • The openness and willingness of the DLE community to connect with new members, encourage them to do their best, and support them during these trying times has been invaluable.  In a world where we can mostly only connect with people virtually this year, I have never felt alone nor isolated thanks to the wonderful DLE community." - Kaled Rocha, Financial Advisor, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management
  • As difficult as this year has been for so many of us, when we can take some time and find something good in our lives, it totally makes a world of difference.  Thank you for all the work you do!  I can say the DLE has been such a wonderful experience in my life this year - for that I am very thankful!" - Nicole Hall, Advanced ILS Technician, General Dynamics Mission Systems
  • I really look forward to the 10-second poll results in the HUB newsletter.  I believe it helps keep the pulse on what is happening with the DLE community and is a quick litmus test.  I like it so much, I have done it with my own organization.  I appreciate the help and only wish I had found DLE earlier in my career." - Nicole Ferry, Special Agent in Charge, CSX Police Department
  • For years, I've been blessed by the energy, community, and camaraderie of the DLE network.  While networking and learning opportunities have always been high quality, it's truly the people who make it such a special experience." - Dr. Andrea Lein, PHD, Clinical Psychologist, and DLE Retreat Faculty Member

  • The DLE is centered around the connections between interesting people and impactful conversations." - Nicole Hall, Advanced Integrated Logistics Support Technician, General Dynamics Mission Systems
  • Linda Dulye is the real deal creating community and adding value to our lives as professionals.  If you could benefit from a safe space for mentoring which will help you troubleshoot and navigate the real world after college, join the DLE community." - Nayma Silver, Founder & Executive Director, Project Beauty Experience Inc.
  • When invited to speak at the DLE Breakfast Club, I was immediately excited when I learned that we would be meeting virtually at 7AM.  I am a firm believer that early birds get the worms and it was just that.  Everyone was attentive, curious and genuinely cared about my story and advice.  Many of the participants were still on the video call an hour after we finished the formal program just to ask questions and soak up knowledge.  What a wonderful community, experience and initiative to inspire our next generation of thinkers and entrepreneurs of all ages!  Much love and respect to Linda Dulye for curating such a safe, diverse and thoughtful space for the community. " - Derrell Smith, Former NFL Player, Owner of 99EATS, Creator of Amazeballs
  • Thank you so much for bringing me into your wonderful community.  It was such a pleasure to be there and see what an amazing group you've cultivated.   Whenever I chat or speak, it is always centered around fitness, and it was such a change-up for me to be able to talk about risk-taking in business!" - Gina DiNapoli, Founder/Owner, JABS by Gina
  • I look forward to Friday Mornings with the DLE Breakfast Club.  I love waking up, making a coffee and tuning into a new topic that I can learn and grow form.  The sense of community, even virtually, is what keeps me coming back for more." - Beth Gilbert, Youth Case Manager, 18 Degrees
