Raves about Donna Fenn as a Speaker
There is no doubt that Donna has her finger on the pulse of the modern upstart and rather innately recognizes the theories of motivation behind GenY entrepreneurs. Her examples are rich with context and of significant value to academics and practitioners alike. Our students at every level found Donna’s presentations informative, witty, and engaging.

[Your presentation with Jake Sasseville] turned out to be, without a doubt, the most high-energy Letterman Series event since we launched in 2009…Afterwards, the students’ remarks were all favorable. I’m certain you both changed many lives last night and clearly there will be more entrepreneurs graduating from Ball State as a result of your visit.”
Dean, College of Communication, Information, and Media Ball State University
By showing how ordinary companies used specific growth strategies to become market leaders, your presentation provided enormous take-home value for the participating women entrepreneurs. Your session was highly-rated by attendees and named a participant favorite in our post-conference evaluation.
NAWBO Deputy Executive Director
Your honest, direct and enthusiastic presentation kept us all riveted. Your book, Alpha Dogs, very well portrays the successes and setbacks of small and mid-sized business owners. It is the best I’ve read in presenting the concepts that independent business owners should seriously consider implementing.
President, George S. May International Company
