About Jamesson Solutions
Early in my career, working in sales and management roles, I experienced successful and failed leaders. I saw the impact they had on their teams and in some cases the organization as a whole. As I became aware of my own weaknesses and strengths, I worked to improve my own leadership skills with the help of an executive coach — a life changing experience that also led me to change my career. From then on, my focus became on helping others access the awareness that had benefited me so much and that I knew carried core value in a competitive marketplace.
More than 20 years later, after working with hundreds of organizations across industries and ranging in size from small startups to Fortune 100 market leaders, I’ve learned a lot, but this fact is the most important: There is a lot of talent and drive in the marketplace, but the people who succeed — and the organizations they build to sustain that success — know how to tell their story, build powerful relationships, and work together in creative and flexible ways not just to solve problems but to realize solutions.
Jamesson Solutions is ready to help you create the career, the company, the community — global or local — you want to build. Let’s get started.
Donna Warrick, President
With 20+ years in training and development, Donna brings solid experience facilitating programs for team development, leadership development, change management, conflict management and presentation skills to name a few. Her dynamic, interactive style makes being in her programs both educational and enjoyable.
Her desire to help people be their best drives her to continually learn and improver her own craft. She feels most satisfied when months or years later she sees a past participant who shares what a difference her work has made in their work and personal life.
After attending Appalachian State University, Donna began her career in sales but soon discovered her true passion was developing others to be better in their roles and as leaders. As an independent consultant and facilitator, she has worked with organizations from small, family-owned businesses to Global Fortune 100 companies. Her clients represent most business sectors including the consumer products, heavy manufacturing, telecommunications, chemical, biotechnology, real estate, transportation, and financial industries.
A resident of Greensboro, NC, Donna is married to her college sweetheart, Mike. Together they have 3 children ages 27, 25, and 10. Although the two oldest are out of the nest, she still stays quite busy with the youngest child who is involved in soccer, boy scouts and swimming. Donna is also an avid tennis player and loves to compete. Being passionate about helping others, she volunteers her time as the fundraising chairperson for the Alight Foundation, a local non-profit in Greensboro that helps support people undergoing treatment for breast cancer.
Being a part of the transformational process individuals and teams experience is why I do what I do. I consider myself successful when my clients are able to achieve their goals through the application of the learning and tools they receive in my classroom.Donna Warrick

“Where did you get your name?” That’s often times the first thing clients and colleagues ask us. With Mike Warrick as the founder why isn’t it Mike Warrick & Associates or Warrick and Associates or Warrick Training Solutions? The fact is, in a way, the company is named after the founder. Mike is half Icelandic. His American father’s name was James and in Iceland, last names typically are derived from combining the father’s first name, “James” with the word “son” or “dottir” depending on the child’s gender. So Jamesson or “James’ son” is a nod to both Mike’s father and his Icelandic heritage.
