Certified Expert Presenter, executive leadership coach, and motivational trainer and facilitator, Dawn Russell brings her heart to everything she does.

An ex-senior airline executive, army reservist, cancer survivor, published author, green thumb and creative cook, Dawn passionately believes that when people are able to bring and give their best, anything is possible.

In today’s world, competitive advantage cannot rely on having the best hardware, because technology and process is so easily copied.  True competitive advantage comes from the “heartware” of an organisation – the employees and leaders who embody a culture of heartfelt commitment and passion to willingly give more than is expected.

“Anyone can copy your hardware, but absolutely no one can replicate your Heartware®.

Polished, professional, relatable and equally as comfortable in high heels challenging CEOs in their boardrooms as she is in her purple Steel Blue work boots in a diesel-fumed workshop, Dawn’s own “heartware” gives her an innate ability to connect deeply with people.

Drawing from a life journey rich with serendipitous events, setbacks and triumphs, Dawn is an authentic, compelling speaker who will touch your heart and inspire you to bring your best self to every single day you are given.
