Professional Speaker


Dawnese began her professional career as a Junior High School English teacher, but quickly turned entrepreneur for more freedom and flexibility as she became a Mom. Starting, building and selling businesses (restaurant, retail, publications and direct sales) for over 20 years, she’s now turned her experience into opportunities to share with others.

As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher, and Speaker, Dawnese helps facilitate individual and organizational growth. Dawnese’s strength is to facilitate change with the least amount of pain as possible. Often called a “catalyst for change,” Dawnese has found success in helping small businesses and non-profit organizations create and execute plans for growth.  Through training and coaching, she assists individuals and organizations in maximizing their influence and impact. She is also using her experience to help grow the Business Speakers Bureau – a Grand Rapids based business – which strives to exceed expectations for providing quality speakers and entertainers for events across the US and internationally. The BSB goes above and beyond booking the talent for you, they walk you through from the beginning (assessing your event goals) all the way to the final applause.

In her “spare time”, you will find Dawnese teaching and mentoring youth, serving on community boards, planning fundraising events, or developing programs to support businesses, individuals, and families.
