Donna Stone has been bookkeeping for over 28 years and a MYOB Consultant for over 16 years, as well as having run a Private Employment Agency for three years. She has worked in top legal and accounting firms, and well as operating her own successful business Stone Consulting for over 10 years which now has over a dozen staff.
Whilst she does have formal qualifications (Advanced Diploma of Accounting, Cert IV Workplace Trainer & Assessor and Cert IV in Small Business Management, plus she is a Registered BAS Agent); it's the years and years of real world experience that has made her into an industry expert she is today.
In addition, Donna has won a number of Business Awards, including being a National Finalist twice for Small Business Champion, won Queensland state awards twice and a number of local awards - mostly in the category of ‘Professional Services'. She was also awarded "Networker of the Year" in 2010 and has been involved in a number of business networking groups, including holding the position of ‘Education Officer'.
Donna is a single mum of 3 boys (or rather young men now) and actually finds (some) time for sport, hobbies and one or two other interests.
