We recently worked with Donna on a complex process change project where her excellent facilitation skills shone through. Her ability to extract key information relating to our daily processes and challenge to seek alternative solutions was vital in getting the end result required. Whilst Donna did not have any experience in our field prior to taking up the assignment, she rose to the challenge and proved to be a great asset on the project team.

Donna THANKS so much for the meetings over the last weeks. You were very inspirational and had such a focused and planned approach! I learnt so much more than I expected. The questions you asked me have really helped me define our future products and your advice and food for thought that you have imparted has given me a better understanding of why we will be doing what we are doing and to always think about things from potential clients’ perspective.

Benjamin Flink

Deputy Director, New Venture Institute

I have been working with Donna since early 2014 while I started my job at the International Melges 24 Class Association. Donna has always been the first Point of Contact for me to get the news about the Melges 24 events down there under. She’s very professional in all she is doing and especially in Event Management and Public Relations – the activities I have been working with her in the first place. I would recommend Donna to speak on your behalf to the wider audience or to make things happen whatever event you have on your mind!

Piret Salmatsu

Administrator and Media Coordinator, International Melges 24 Class Association


Worked with Donna at the running club on a whole series of events and during an organisational review. She re-energised the events, greatly improved marketing and reach, built agreements with sponsors, and revitalised the organisation with her vision and energy. Professional, well organised and focused as well as a great relationship builder and tactful manager. An asset to any organisation.


Chris Taylor

Professional Coach, South Australian Road Runners Club Incorporated

I have been impressed with Donna’s event management skills on a number of occasions. Her ability to communicate to stakeholders of all levels and ensure that competitors are looked after is exceptional. Donna’s no non-sense approach and willingness to roll the sleeves up and sort things out are strengths required to ensure event success.
