PeopleStories is very fortunate to have such an amazing team including a very capable advisory council. Our Council is like a compass and helps connecting us to achieve the shared vision and purpose. While the role of the Council may sound easy in theory, it is challenging in reality. Therefore, finding those likeminded, professional and passionate people who are willing to share some of their precious time, skill, experience and even wealth can be tricky.
After months of searching and a stringent selection process, we are incredibly proud and humbled that the advisory council is established and it comprises 6 members across Asia Pacific. Like many other change makers, our council members do not necessarily seek the lime light for their contribution and it is only appropriate that we take the time to shine a light on them and how they manage to pursue their dreams whilst juggling their busy life.
It is our honour to introduce Donna Worthington, our longest serving council member of PeopleStories.

I’m a huge advocate for diversity and the benefits it provides in any environment or context.”
