Presenter: Cindy Donaldson, Red Barn Consulting

Cindy is an operations, marketing and sales strategist, trainer, and speaker with over 25 years in the industry.  Considered an innovator and thought leader on personal and company branding, Cindy’s strength is creating “buzz” for industries struggling to move the revenue needle often due to increased competition, lack of operational, marketing, or sales processes, and increased threat of mergers and acquisitions.

Cindy was a top award winning salesperson for the Sir Speedy Printing franchise; beginning her career in North Carolina and then transferring to Connecticut.  She later moved on to start Brookhollow Marketing, a full-service marketing agency working with small to mid-sized companies.  In 2008, one of her clients, Founders Insurance Group, asked Cindy to become their in-house Director of Marketing & Sales.  During her tenure, she gained national recognition for Founders marketing and sales efforts specifically as it relates to the use of digital marketing and social selling. She held that position until 2013 when she launched Red Barn Consulting.

Today, Cindy and her team at Red Barn work with a variety of industries including Insurance, Banking, Health Care, Coaching, Leadership, and Training Firms.  She sits on the board of the Professional Insurance Agents of CT, is a member of the Agents Council for Technology, past Corporate Secretary of VNA Northwest, Inc, past Economic Development Commission (EDC)Chair for the City of Torrington, CT and past member of the New Hartford, CT EDC.  She and her team are also members of the CT Banking Association, NW CT Chamber of Commerce, Waterbury Chamber of Commerce, Avon Chamber of Commerce, and the New Hartford Business Council.

Cindy has been published in several medical and insurance journals on the topics of digital marketing, social selling, and leadership and is a frequent speaker/trainer at industry and community events.

Cindy lives in New Hartford, CT with her partner David Coons. She enjoys traveling both abroad and in their RV, running, hiking, gardening and her latest artistic endeavor – painting.
