Your Hosts:

Donna Brighton – is a culture change strategist, leadership coach, keynote speaker and a Rebel Leader.

She helps leaders solidify change more rapidly and successfully through the power of Culturally Intelligent Change. As a co-creator of the Flourishing Workplace, Donna helps organizations get clear on the culture they need to have in order to achieve their objectives, then helps them move towards that ideal. She helped found and lead the global Association of Change Management Professionals. She travels the world enjoying wine with Leadership Uncorked, and is the author of the upcoming Rebel Leader Field Guide series of leadership books.

She has done in-depth research on the Millennial generation having worked with them for over 20 years AND focusing her doctoral research on their view of leadership and teams. She not only has a unique ability to connect with every generation but more importantly, she is a savvy Gen Xer who has learned to navigate a Boomer world while helping Millennials be successful in this foreign culture along the way. She believes each generation has much to teach the others and is grateful for Gen Z as they continue to keep her relevant in this rapidly changing world.

Since 1892, Columbia Yacht Club has been known as more than a ship on the Lake, as more than a sailing organization, as more than a dining room. It has been known and continues to be celebrated as the club that fosters a deep sense of pride and camaraderie among its members, officers, and staff.

Members are drawn together by their love of the Lake, whether racing, cruising, power boating, or simply enjoying the view from the Club. From elegant dancing-under-the-stars celebrations on the Club Ship aft deck to casual parties on the dock; from quiet sunrise breakfasts to sunset dining; from the bustle of crews readying for races to quiet nights aboard your boat moored at the Club’s docks, Columbia Yacht Club is always a place where you are “Welcome Aboard.”
