Donna Duffy CEO/Founder 3E Marketing Solutions A dynamic, inspirational speaker, successful entrepreneur and visionary, Donna Duffy is passionate about helping others, especially women leaders and entrepreneurs realize their greatest areas of impact and influence, with a focus on leadership and potential development. A successful community leader and educator in the Middle East for 18 years, once back in the U.S., she worked in the education field for several years before becoming an entrepreneur by starting an event planning business and shortly thereafter, a tutoring company. Working alongside other small businesses, it became clear that many business owners felt isolated, ill-equipped and on their own. As an innovative leader, she started connecting small business owners, weekly around her kitchen table, to discuss business development, marketing strategies and joint venture opportunities. In 2009, 3E Marketing Solutions, a boutique marketing agency, began officially serving the small business community in the Delaware area. For the past 4 years, she has offered a complimentary monthly Boost Your Business workshop to the small business community, sharing marketing and business expertise and tips along with excellent networking opportunities. As a business and community leader, entrepreneur, strategist and coach, Donna has found that her true passion is helping individuals to identify and embrace their strengths, talents and potential. She strives to motivate, enlighten and challenge others to push past limiting beliefs and mindset issues to transition toward empowered choices and bold forward actions. Donna continually strives to inspire and motivate those who desire to turn their passion into a business, strategically improve their business and/or strengthen and up level their leadership skills. Weaving together her expertise, vision, and humor with refreshing transparency, she easily engages and aligns with her audience and clients, connecting to where they are while creating a vision for where they can go, then provides practical, applicable solutions to make it happen. Donna has become a trusted leader and resource for the business community. Donna's grassroots methodology, effective communication and willingness to come alongside wherever you are, truly helps others define their need, identify goals and assists in breaking through barriers to overcome challenges and create new opportunities and successes. 2016 John Maxwell Top 30 Leadership Award, 2016 TEDx Women Wilmington Speaker, Author of, Embracing Autumn, A Motivational Field Guide for Mid-life Women Entrepreneurs, released October 2015•2015 Business Woman of the Year – New Castle County Chamber of Commerce, DE• President National Association of Women Business Owners, Delaware Chapter 2014-2016.
