My name is Donna Riccardo, I’ve been in the field of public speaking for 30 years.

I’m passionate about this field because I struggled with connecting with people one-to-one – and from the front of the room.

I help entrepreneurs represent and express themselves powerfully in a business setting.

I love to help my clients feel confident, and have clarity and power in the presence of others to accelerate the growth of their business.

When I speak, I teach my audience how to show up, speak up and get what they want to make the income they need to have the life they want!

What clients are saying:

“My time with Donna was worth every minute. I have gone through years of not having the right response of the audience from my presentations to having complete confidence in my new presentation. I couldn’t have structured it without the knowledge and help of Donna. I highly recommend Donna Riccardo – Red Stiletto.
