Donald Cooper transforms business and business people by adding more real value to their customers’ lives and more dollars to their bottom lines!
Donald started his business career at the age of 6, sweeping the floor in the family business for 5 cents a day. Long days and low pay…excellent early training for an entrepreneur!
Donald Cooper earned an undergraduate business degree and an MBA from the Ivey Business School at the University of Western Ontario, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth…followed by 18 years at Cooper Canada, the family business. Cooper Canada became the world’s leading maker of hockey equipment and a Canadian Brand icon.
As Cooper Canada grew, partners were bought out and the company went public.
At age 43 Donald left the family business to do something less corporate, reinventing himself as an award-winning retailer. He fundamentally redefined customer experience in three years and received seven Awards of Excellence for marketing, service and business innovation.
Drawing from his real-life experience as a world-class manufacturer, retailer and business coach, he now helps companies rethink and reinvent themselves to create compelling customer value, clarity of purpose and long-term profitability.
For his unique business content and compelling presentation style, Donald has been awarded the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation, the highest earned designation in the world of professional speaking. He has been inducted into the Canadian Speaking Hall of Fame. His insights into how to sell more, manage smarter, grow your bottom line and have a life will inform, challenge, disturb, and inspire.
