Bonnie Dean    

Communication Expert

There are likely some people in the corporate arena who haven’t learned something from Bonnie Dean, but there are probably few who haven’t had a terrific time in the process! Her extensive knowledge of value-based communication skills, team building through creativity and fun, her interactive teaching style and her understated sense of humor create a stimulating learning environment for industry professionals and layman alike! Bonnie has a knack for conveying the human side of communication, says Shirley Salter of Boeing North America. Her gift is taking black and white events and turning them into Technicolor extravaganzas! Her programs have been heard from South Africa to Canada, Australia to France and all the places in between.

You may notice something different about Bonnie. It starts with those crazy tennis shoes she wears everywhere. Graduating from California State University San Diego and the School of Hard Knocks, Bonnie was one of the original fitness instructors, marathon runners and Kauai backpacking guides in the 70s.

Bonnie’s programs inspire change and refocus corporate cultures to start thinking as one cohesive entity instead of the fragmented units that often plight the business world. The ultimate compliment from a meeting planner was; It’s not about her, it’s about how she makes people feel about themselves.

Bonnie is the CCO (Chief Creativity Officer) of W.O.W. Presentations, an international events company that celebrates the relationships of co-workers, customers, and management. Bonnie has been described as: a veg-o-matic blend of Shakespearean actor, improve comic, sitcom starlet, soap opera diva, Vegas showgirl, Harvard professor, informercial huckster, information architect, Broadway choreographer, Navaho storyteller, circus clown, aerobics instructor, and industrial psychologist, a human hurricane of immense heart and boundless energy who throws off more sparks than a Shuttle launch.

Heard most recently in South Africa on Cape Town Talk and Women Speak‚ she is a frequent quest on KTLA TV’s Making IT morning show doing motivational minutes.
