“Speaker”, “journalist”, “author”, “coach”, “trainer”, “advisor”, “facilitator”, “mentor” and “leader” are all words that describe Donna Messer to a tee. Look closer, however, and you’ll see that a common theme runs through them all – a love of people. For more than two decades, Donna has been a renowned expert on and promoter of the often overlooked, true currency of business – personal relationships – how to forge, nurture and leverage them to enable those who properly cultivate these relationships to put them to mutual benefit.
As President of ConnectUs Canada, Donna’s contact network extends well into the tens of thousands – a network that she routinely and freely shares with her clients, associates and acquaintances via the extensive speaking engagements and workshops around the world.
A dynamic, highly sought-after speaker, Donna has spoken throughout North America, the Caribbean, Mexico, Europe and Iceland on a host of topics dealing with the art of networking and the ties that bind. She has spoken before Federal, Provincial, Municipal and State governments, even serving as an advisor to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) on issues relating to women in business.
