Jill Ann Donahue

managing director
EngageRx/Excellerate

When Jill Donahue was 35, she lost her father to an avoidable prescribing error. As a professional in the pharmaceutical industry, she asked herself: What if my Dad’s doctor’s rep had been able to access and influence him more effectively? Jill has made it her life’s work to develop purpose-driven, influential pharmaceutical professionals. She is a firm believer that the greatest outcomes will be achieved when we shift from being script-centric to patient-centric and apply the science of behavior change. Jill is the creator of EngageRx: The Three Keys to Patient-Focused Growth, the most popular program in Canada and winner of LTEN’s Award of Excellence. As co-founder of The Aurora Project, she works with leaders globally who are trying to illuminate the path to patient centricity. She founded her company, Excellerate, in 2005.
