For over two decades, Don worked with adult learners within colleges and universities as well as with national and international professional designation-granting bodies.  His work over the years has allowed him to collaborate with educational institutions in North America, Europe and Asia to promote the concept of entrepreneurial cultures as a foundation for learning-centered environments and student success.
