Lynne Lance, Director of Member Services, National Newspaper Association (NNA)

It has been my pleasure to work with Wendy MacDonald as my publication rep with Rental Management magazine over the past few years. Having worked with many reps in several industries, Wendy’s thoughtful attention to results-oriented solutions and stellar customer service stands tall among those who have provided service to me. She is always at the ready to brainstorm new ideas and offer another perspective. She’s a true business partner in her role not only as a publications sales representative, but also in her role as owner of Plan4Growth Sales & Marketing. I am grateful to have Wendy’s insight and passion when planning my media and business initiatives.

Brother Satyananda, Minister and Administrator for Lake Shrine Center of Self-Realization Fellowship

I have known Wendy since the early 1990’s when I was in charge of Executive Development at Southam Newspapers. Wendy was Director of Sales for CP (Canadian Press is the equivalent of AP-Associated Press). She was held in high esteem by her sales team and the executives who were her clients. 
The leadership traits revealed by her assessment were unique. Wendy has an ideal General Manager’s profile. She has unusual bandwidth, in that she is both strategic and tactical, analytical and relational. Her confidence, coolness under pressure and relentless focus gave her tremendous credibility with her team. 

Wendy has superb interpersonal dexterity and judgment about people. Her business instincts and acumen are exceptional. She is both a team player and an independent leader and would be a great asset to any organization.
