After searching at length, I was referred to Donna by a fellow business owner. She immediately grasped what I wanted.

It’s obvious that Donna is knowledgeable, customer-focused, and business savvy. She not only found, but delivered exactly what I was looking for. Now that I have started distributing them, the feedback I am receiving from referral sources and clients has been fantastic. Everyone thinks  the concept is clever and deliver just the message I was looking for.

Donna is now a valuable resource in my network. THANK YOU, Donna!!

The Donna Bender Company demonstrates what the term BRAND AMBASSADOR  should deliver. They are dedicated to maintaining a pulse on emerging cultural and branding trends. Their insightful approach to reflecting our mission, culture and delivery internally as well as externally, is due to Donna’s creative direction and extensive experience building name brand companies. It is so nice to work with someone who thinks out of the box and at the same time hits the mark!

Donna is my go-to for all things promotional. With the significant number and large format events that we handle daily, she is extremely fast on the (oftentimes) ridiculous turnaround times that our clients demand.

Whether it’s a last minute request or a brainstorm session, Donna can handle it all.

My favorite part about working with Donna is that she cares, she gets it, and she delivers

Donna Bender has exceeded my expectations as a marketing consultant for promotional products. Several promotional products and advertising specialty companies have worked with our company over the past few years, but none has earned our repeat business because it was always about "them" and never about "our" desires. Donna showed her dedication to her clients, by taking time to learn about our company and what separates us from our competition. Armed with this knowledge, she was able to make recommendations for how she could assist and improve our marketing efforts by using branded promotional products. As a result, Donna is now viewed as a partner for our advertising and marketing efforts and not a vendor. Donna is now involved in developing marketing campaigns, client and employee recognition events, and sales meetings to leverage her fresh ideas and innovative products.

"Donna provided Heart House Dallas with marketing expertise at a time when our organization could not afford to hire a full time person. Donna's extensive experience and knowledge in marketing provided our organization with the opportunity to present ourselves to the community with the look and know how of a dynamic marketing team. I would highly recommend Donna to any organization that wants a true professional to build brand awareness in a cost-effective way and timely manner."

"I met Donna Bender when she was a keynote speaker at a conference I attended. Donna has a high level of energy and kept her audience engaged. She has a thorough knowledge and understanding of what it takes to successfully market a company. We have since hired Donna to help our company with various marketing efforts and to utilize her unique out-of-the-box thinking. I strongly recommend Donna for any marketing needs you may have and for her excellent taste-level and use of corporate gifts to help brand your company."

"It was terrific getting to meet you and the rest of the panel last week. Thanks for effectively delivering a very inspirational and thought-provoking message to our group. I had a LOT of positive feedback...words like "motivating", "inspiring", "powerful", "impactful", and one of my all time favorites - "useful". A motivational discussion is one thing, but translating words into actions is something else entirely. It's a personal victory to me when our attendees are able to take information with them and use it to forge new paths of their own. To that end, I gave your contact information to several of the UPSers (as we call ourselves) that were attending via telephone. Don't be surprised if you're contacted for future speaking engagements!"
