Co-founder and owner of agil8, Donna is responsible for Sales and Customer Service. If you are unsure which course to take, how to progress your career, or want to talk about in-house agile training and consulting, then Donna will likely be the one to answer your questions.
Donna also has overall responsibility for agil8’s very capable, and growing back office team, including training delivery, marketing and finance team members. You can expect to find her at Agile events and supporting the wider agil8 community.
Donna has been working in the Agile field for 9 years and is a Certified ScrumMaster and Certified Scrum Product Owner. Prior to this, she spent 18 years working at management consultancy Accenture, where she pursued a career in Knowledge Management and later on Capability Development and Training Strategy. She was a member of the Global Consumer Goods and Services practice leadership team and managed the global training and knowledge management programme for 8 years. Eventually, the lure of the countryside and a better work-life balance, led her to join her husband in his previous Agile company, where she was responsible for a strengthened marketing capability including marketing planning and strategy, conference management, communications strategy, SEO and website management, and social media.
Donna is a collaborative and dynamic manager, with a confident and outgoing personality and strong communication, interpersonal, and leadership skills.
Outside of work, Donna is mum to two teenage daughters, enjoys the ‘Good Life’ (and knows how to make cider, bacon and sausages and real bread), and is a keen open-water swimmer.
