Why Work With Us

Invaluable Experience

We’ve been there.  We’ve started companies and been a contributor to others.  We’ve had great success and have failed a time or two.  We’ll share our expertise and best practices to help you avoid the pitfalls in growing a business.

Personal Attention

You’re ready for a career pivot.  Is now a good time?  No time is the right time because no one is truly ready for the turmoil of a career change.  Don’t think this is a bad time for a change.  We can coach you through it with personalized attention and a non-cookie cutter approach.  Because the real change isn’t in the process, it’s in the Mindset.

Professional team

Dyer Stephenson collaborates with a network of experienced mentors and advisors who have extensive experience with early stage companies.   Together we help entrepreneurs navigate the challenges of understanding the ecosystem of the Silicon Valley.  

Who We Work With

What People Are Saying

I have known Donna as a friend and colleague for 20 years.  She is one of those rare people who simultaneously thinks and acts strategically, tactically and operationally.  She is a team player who brings energy and creativity to any management team. 

Robert,  Supply Chain Consulting Company

I had the good fortune of working with Donna at a construction management company where she was Director of Marketing.    Donna’s leadership provided valuable direction as the company grew from eleven employees to twenty-six employees in one year. Her project management skills were invaluable for coordinating multiple undertakings.  She is one of those managers who inspires confidence in others, remains calm under pressure and is always professional. 

Lisa,  Director of Human Resources for a professional accounting company

As I said to you and to many others, you played a very important role in my growth and success.
I watched how you handled adversity.  I am now passing everything (I learned from you) down to my mentees
I will always be indebted to you for bringing out the best in me.

Seth,  Entrepreneur and former CIO for a major water district

Donna is a brilliant, intuitive, and creative career coach. I have been working with her to navigate a major career pivot. What seemed daunting and ambiguous at first is now actionable and exciting thanks to Donna's mentoring and support. Our meetings and discussions are always something I look forward to and I come away from them inspired and clear.
