Meet Dawnna

Sure, you have a great idea, but getting buy-in can be a total pain. And then, actually moving that idea from whiteboard-to-boardroom-to-bottomline can feel like you’re running the gauntlet on American Ninja Warrior… over hot-coals… with one hand tied behind your back…in a hurricane!


But it doesn’t have to be that way.

You can quickly turn ideas into profits. Get teams on board. And effortlessly influence others… no Jedi mind-tricks required. My keynote presentations are fun, exciting, and specifically designed to give you the inside track to getting buy-in fast.

These are the same insider techniques used in my 20+ year career to transform my 5-person team into a highly sought-after international consultancy. We were craved by our customers, envied by our competitors, and buzzed about in our industry.

In a nutshell: I have the secrets to influence, innovate, and lead!
