About Dion McInnis

Dion McInnis

I have been a photographer since six, a writer since 12 and poet since birth.  I carried those skills and sensibilities through career phases as writer, photographer, fundraiser/development officer, professional speaker, teacher/instructor, university advancement leader … empowering teams, inspiring philanthropists, engaging collaborators and partners … to raise millions of dollars, engage thousands of members, organize hundreds of volunteers and oversee scores of events, all of them  … one friend at a time.  I have made a life and livelihood from seeing differently, changing perspectives and growing authentically because of the wisdom, insights and inspirations  found in my LIFElines.  I don’t just write about LIFElines … I have lived them and shared the lessons with others.

I am a listener.  An enabler.  An empowerment junkie.  A teacher, instructor, guide, coach and mentor.  I want you to succeed … wildly … while having joy for your calling, your life and for living.  I want your team members and customers to consider it a blessing each day that they do business with you, support you, work with you, join you.


Only connect! That was the whole of her sermon.
Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalted,
And human love will be seen at its height.
Live in fragments no longer.
Only connect…

–E.M. Forster, Howards End


Connect.  Inspire. Guide.  Persuade.
