Every Human Advancement or Reversal can be Understood through Communication
Walter Annenberg

Welcome, I’m Don! I’m a “pracademic” who teaches, researches, and consults on strategic and leadership communication, and always striving to help others level up in these areas. I’m a Professor at Baruch College, CUNY, an adjunct at Columbia and NYU, and the founder of Communication Upward, which provides workshops/coaching for professional development and expert facilitation for retreats and meetings. I’ve authored seven books, including Improv for Democracy and Leadership Standpoints, and received a Ph.D. in Communication from the University of Southern California. I’m a tennis fanatic, Duolingo enthusiast, and sometimes do improv comedy around town. You can sign up for my email newsletter updates below!
