The Chief Monkey

Founded in 2008 by the Chief Monkey at Monkey Business Solutions Group, Donna brings with her about 20 years experience in the Fortune 500, Corporate, Educational and Non-Profit Sectors. Donna spent 15 years in the IT industry project managing corporate roll-outs and managing the day-to-day logistics of IT departments. Subsequently, in her role as Business Advisor at the London Small Business Centre, Donna had the privilege to work with entrepreneurs on all aspects of their business from marketing & business planning, branding & positioning, studying & analyzing the competitive environment, networking techniques, realistic & attainable goal setting, to developing an effective sales process while developing workshops to teach and provide tools to entrepreneurs to implement their business with success. In day-to-day work at Monkey Business, Donna uses this experience and skill set to help clients build a complete and well-rounded marketing and communications plan that takes in to account the aspects of the competitive environment most important to the business. As a Business Consultant and Coach, really listening to her clients and being able to “get it” is her strength. We work to understand the market landscape, who our clients really are, what they really do, where they are today and where they envision being tomorrow- and taking that insight to create strategic solutions that meet their objectives. This approach to really understanding the needs of the business creates a unique experience for each client, as we do not believe in the “one-size fits all” approach.

Meet AJ

Baptized as “AJ” he’s a soft, ticklish cute sort of guy with a mischievous bend and a cheerful laugh.

And… AJ stands for? Well, it’s the combination of the letters A and J.

A is for Awesome, that’s what we think AJ is, and of course for animal because that’s what he is.

J is for Jewel, because of his sparkling personality, J is also for AJ’s propensity for jumping throughout the jungles. Well,  in  this case, among all the low and high hanging branches making up the marketing jungle!

The meaning of AJ’s name (as per Google) is that he is powerful, complete, bold, independent, inquisitive, original and inventive. AJ is good intellectually and requires several outlets for his energies…um, this could be beneficial with many elements needed for an effective marketing mix.

When Monkey Business Solutions Group was born, it made sense to bring AJ into the company; Having fun in a marketing company is after all, totally appropriate! If you’d like to learn more about AJ, check his post out on the blog
