"As the founder of the Women's Networking Group at AIG American General in Neptune, NJ, I was challenged to find innovative and credible speakers that could inspire the ladies in our group to rise to their highest potential, especially during the troubling time that had beset AIG. I was so fortunate that a colleague introduced me to Donnalyn, and I quickly found that she fit the bill for our speaker series. Donnalyn's presentation, "Success in Tough Economic Times: Possibilities in the Challenges!" was exactly what our group needed. Drawing from her own life experiences and making a strong personal connection with the group, Donnalyn shared the key characteristics of resilient women, demonstrated how to apply those strengths in their work and personal life, and most importantly, how to integrate fun and pleasure into every day. I highly recommend Donnalyn as a motivational speaker for any organization seeking a highly accomplished, professional, and witty spirit."
Shari Ciapka, Vice President

I met Donnalyn in New York City, where she was volunteering her time on an executive panel for Women Unlimited's Lead program, designed to hone the skills of high-potential, female contributors at Fortune 500 companies. Her phrase "Lift as you Climb" is not just a cliche and has inspired me to do the same. More recently Donnalyn was the keynote speaker at a Women's Leadership Conference in Reading, Pennsylvania, where she captivated the audience including myself with her message "Empower Yourself Beginning Now"."
