Ron Doney

creator of WOW

Passionate about learning and delivering innovative and unexpected solutions that help organizations achieve results, our creator of WOW thinks big and ensures our clients realize a competitive advantage. Long before Think Up was thought up, Ron was laying the groundwork for success. He holds a Master of Arts degree in Organizational Management and enjoyed a 15 year career in the hospitality industry. Ron gained insight from personal experience as a regional brand director, information systems business analyst, and (our personal favorite) learning designer, developer, and facilitator. His experiences led him to discover that he could bring credibility and business relevance to the concepts of creativity, fun, imagination, and discovery by stretching people’s minds beyond what the traditional work environment commonly permits. In 2002, Ron launched Think Up Consulting and in turn, created an organization that is centered on learning — customized and creative.
