PODCASTS & WEBINARS

Evidence that I practice what I preach, after 25 years as a ghost-writer and behind-the-camera kind of gal, I’ve stepped up to the mic to both elicit inspiring and motivational stories from published authors and to share my own stories of encouragement to help “women of a certain age” shine the spotlight on their creative projects.

KEYNOTE TALKS

A relatively new area for me, my keynote talks are story-based, inspirational and filled with feel-good endorphins. My goal with every talk is to leave my audience revved up to take action on their creative projects.

INTERACTIVE WORKSHOPS

From the Yukon to Sri Lanka, Toronto to Saipan, and at least 30 towns and cities in-between, I’ve delivered over one hundred interactive workshops to groups as small as 10 people to as large as 200.

The Power of Being a ‘9’

How to be the person you’ve always dreamed you could be

Taking advantage of our life’s milestones — births, deaths, significant dates — we can harness unlimited power to recreate ourselves as the person our soul is begging us to become, no matter how old we are. Don’t have a traditional milestone coming up at a convenient time? No problem! In this course we’ll create the milestones we need to access the commitment, confidence and courage that comes from these life-changing events.

Blast Through Your Writing Roadblocks and Rev Up Your Confidence

This course is your map to blast through all of the roadblocks you’ve put in your own way on your writer’s journey. Commit to doing the 10 days of exercises and you’ll develop a confidence to get your book written that is so fierce, you’ll wonder what’s been holding you back.

Girls Who Get Themselves in Trouble

An in-development project that will eventually comprise a podcast and video series, a 15-minute talk, a one-hour workshop and an anthology of stories. Yeah!

Each podcast and video episode focuses on a specific ‘trouble’ theme and features a surprising conversation with a woman who once was a ‘girl who got herself in trouble’, a tragicomic story from a second woman, and some ‘try this at home’ advice to end each show with a call-to-compassion.

6 REASONS WHY DONNA IS PERFECT FOR YOUR EVENT

1. CUSTOM DESIGNED

Donna starts with a basic framework and then ‘origamis’ her talks to meet the needs of your organization, audience, and key objectives. Whether it’s an interactive workshop or an engaging keynote, Donna’s presentation will be customized and perfectly relevant to your specific needs.

2. LOW MAINTENANCE

Don’t let her name fool you, there is no ‘Prima’ in this Donna. Give her a glass of water and place to stand and she’s ready to roll. You’ll find Donna is flexible, professional, and oh-so-easy to accommodate.

3. ENGAGING & MOTIVATIONAL

Donna’s enthusiasm is contagious. Her talks and workshops are focussed, interactive, and entertaining. Your audience will be fully engaged and energized to apply new techniques to old challenges.

4. HIGH IMPACT

Stories are fun and facts are useful, but unless connected to inspiration and action… your audience may as well read a book. Donna will make it worth showing up to hear the info live and in-person, providing your audience with engaging and actionable take-aways.

5. UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE

Take a writer who’s spent 25+ years making technical topics easy-to-understand, toss in some award-winning, story-telling author chops, and top that smoothie up with the heart of a social advocate and you get Donna.

6. RELATABLE

At her core, Donna is just like every woman “of a certain age” who faces self-doubt and has to shush that critical inner voice. Her shoes are well-worn from walking her talk. Your audience will connect with her confident vulnerability.
