The Donald Thompson Podcast

By Donald Thompson

Welcome to the Donald Thompson podcast, a place where dream chasers can hear wisdom and insights from entrepreneurs and leaders who forged their own path to success. Host Donald Thompson is a successful African-American CEO of Walk West, Diversity & Inclusion Consultant, Mentor, Author, and Angel Investor. People who have reached a certain level of success in their industry, always want to share what they’ve learned with the next generation and want others to learn from their success and their failures. DTP provides a platform for successful leaders to give back and for aspiring leaders to learn. From radio show hosts and business leaders to lawyers and creatives, our guests share a common desire to give their knowledge and insight back to the next generation of leaders.
