Speaker: Donna Cheung, Co-Founder & Executive Producer of Wakefield Productions

In our interview with Donna, we’ll discuss:

- The value of storytelling for businesses and organizations
- What makes a good story and how businesses can tell better stories
- Examples of working with entrepreneurs to identify their heart and communicate that through story
- How she listens for God’s voice while making business decisions and how she takes small risks to follow promptings to test if it’s from God
