Transform the way you work. Learn how to think and act like a storymaker to better engage your world.


Story is the most powerful, visceral and memorable way that humans make sense of the world. Shouldn’t you learn to leverage that power? In my highly regarded keynotes and hands-on workshops, you learn how to find your purpose and path so that you can propel you and everyone you work with to action.

 Keynote: Own Your Story

Each of us has stories that can propel us forward—or hold us back, if we’re not examining our stories with purpose. In this keynote and series of workshops, you will learn how story not only flows through successful businesses and careers, but how to harness tools that you already have at your disposal to to identify, optimize, and ultimately bring your best story to life.


I teach private, customizable workshops that cover the following topics:

  • Authentic leadership

  • Developing your leadership presence

  • Creating a coaching culture

  • Effective teamwork and collaboration

  • Giving and receiving feedback

  • Strategic planning

  • Leadership retreats

There’s always one talk you want to rush back and immediately apply it to what you’re working on. Donna’s was it.
— Dave Shea, Founder, CSS Zen Garden
Not only was the material engaging and filled with real-world examples, but the class work was perfectly designed to help me grasp the best practices and start to apply them. When I went back to my job I had just enough confidence to start to experiment. Now I’m able to take on more of the work I wanted to do. You can’t beat that! It has really changed the way I work.
