We’ve known Donna for around 7 years now and in every role she’s had since we got to know her, Donna has continually looked to make herself better at what she does – she’s a relentless learner and that not only shows a real desire to improve, it shows humility – she knows you are not the finished article. From the first moment we met at AXA via Fast Forward and throughout the years that followed, Donna has been recognized by her industry and her peers as a talented and hard working leader, something reflected in the many awards and accolades she’s won. Alongside that Donna truly knows what high performance means for her, she challenges herself continually, puts herself outside her comfort zone and she never gives up!
During the time we’ve known Donna, she’s also remained true to herself and her principles and though it hasn’t always been easy to do that she’s made the choice to do so and that makes her stand out from the crowd. The context in which she’s led so amazingly has often been tough, she’s played to strengths and by focusing on these she’s consistently out-performed others.
There have also been times when applying the principles of high performance in the places Donna has worked has not been easy. At those times she was brave and true and as a result, she has left a true legacy, so others continue to benefit from her hard work, her choices and her sacrifices. We are proud to welcome her into the Hall of Fame.
