Dawn Quesnel is bold, innovative, passionate, fun, and stands out from the crowd! She is a leader in the coaching industry and was nominated by her peers in June 2011 as Career Coach of the Year. DQ as she is affectionately known., is a radio show host, coach, facilitator, and author. Leveraging her strong background in sales and her desire to make a difference in people’s lives, she inspires, motivates, and encourages advertising, marketing, and creative business owners to take their career and life to the next level. She helps them by “shining a spotlight” on key roadblocks to success and then by coaching them on sales, negotiations, relationship/team development and networking strategies to “re-ignite” their career or business success.
Dawn draws on her eclectic background and experiences to offer her clients a unique perspective and approach to personal and professional success. Prior to transitioning to coaching, Dawn honed her job-search, coaching, and sales skills as a recruiter for two of Boston’s premier advertising agencies, and then ultimately as owner of her own recruiting firm. In all of these roles, she frequently exceeded sales targets and was awarded as a “Top Biller.” But more importantly, in each of these roles, Dawn took a personal interest in mentoring and empowering her clients to break through roadblocks, helping to set them up for career success.
Prior to her roles in recruiting, Dawn was fortunate enough to participate in corporate training programs at both Hilton Corporation and Disney, where she acquired strong skills and expertise in professional presence and client relationship management. All of these varied experiences helped shape her career and contributed immensely to her success. Dawn lives in the Boston area with her husband, daughter, and 2 cats, Itchy and Scratchy.
