LaDonna Gatlin

LaDonna Gatlin has earned the highest professional designation, the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), from the National Speakers Association. In July 2005, she was one of five speakers (and the only woman that year) inducted into the Speakers Hall of Fame (CPAE Council of Peers Award for Excellence), a lifetime award for speaking excellence and professionalism. A seasoned professional, LaDonna has shared her message everywhere − from corporate powerhouses to the prison cells of death row. She has spent her entire career empowering people to "sing their own song" through their words, deeds, and actions. Her presentations educate, inspire, and entertain, and are an unforgettable experience for her audiences. LaDonna has also recorded four solo CDs and is a contributing writer to the bestselling book series Chicken Soup for the Soul. She lives in a Dallas suburb with her husband (and best friend) of thirty-eight years, Tim Johnson. They have two adult children who have blessed them with five grandchildren....and counting. Visit:
