About Donn LeVie

Donn LeVie Jr. is a respected leadership influence strategist/consultant, award-winning author, leadership coach and mentor, and global speaker who focuses on how people speak (linguistics), how they think (cognitive psychology), and how they make decisions (behavioral economics).

In his roles leading people and programs for Fortune 100 companies (Phillips Petroleum, Motorola, Intel Corp.), government agencies (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), and academia (the University of Houston Downtown College – Department of Natural Sciences and Mathematics), Donn has been directly involved with global oceanographic research projects, multi-million-dollar offshore oil and gas exploration programs, high-tech chip design initiatives, and teaching fundamentals of petroleum exploration and production to undergraduate students.

Donn stepped away from the corporate world in 2013 to launch Donn LeVie Jr. STRATEGIES, LLC. Over his 34-year career, he’s spoken at more than 70 conferences, and since 2011 has been a regular presenter and leadership strategist at the annual Global Fraud Conference sponsored by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.

Donn’s client and audience list spans organizations from the public, private, and education sectors, including the FBI, Dept. of Education Inspector General’s Office, New York Port Authority, National Science Foundation, FDIC, Enterprise Holdings, Ernst & Young, the City of Nashville, Franklin and Marshall College, and many more.

As an author, Donn’s books have won the Global eBook Award GOLD and SILVER Medals as well as the International Book Award (“Confessions of a Hiring Manager Rev. 2.0”, 2012; “Strategic Career Engagement”, 2016). His first book, “It’s All About HYMN: Reclaiming Sacred Music and Traditional Hymns for Worship” was the GOLD MEDAL WINNER of the 2011 Global eBook Award for Christian Non-Fiction, and “Instrumental Influences: Reflections on the Classical Guitar from the World’s Most Influential Performers and Pedagogues” was the WINNER of the 2012 International Book Award and the 2011 SILVER MEDAL WINNER of the Global eBook Award for Performing Arts.

Retiring in mid-2023, Donn continues to author books, write feature articles for FRAUD Magazine, and speak at association conferences. In retirement, he also plans to build up his classical guitar repertoire of J.S. Bach music and arrangements of traditional hymns and sacred music.

Donn’s newly released (fall 2023) books, “From the Underworld to the Boardroom: True Tales of Fraud, Corruption, Counterfeiting, and Cons” and “STACKING THE DECK: Career Strategies for Outsmarting the Competition” are available as free ebook downloads for Donn’s audiences.
