Talks and workshops that change the way creatives see themselves and do business.
I've had the pleasure of speaking at events, conferences and workshops for these awesome organizations:

Dana has spoken at several events for Harlem’s Fashion Row. The last event was our designers retreat sponsored by Nike.

In addition to speaking, Dana attended our networking session and offered branding advice to our attendees, which were multicultural fashion designers from all around the country. Dana was relatable, provided incredible value, and received rave reviews from our attendees. We’ve booked her to speak at two more events!

Looking for a keynote speaker, panelist, or workshop presenter that excites?

I talk about branding, graphic and web design, and entrepreneurship to creative professionals and entrepreneurs.

I teach college students how to get ready for agencies, freelancing, or running a creative business after graduation.

When I’m invited to talk to middle and high school students, I teach them that art is indeed a safe and secure job.

The common threads through all of my talks:

By the end of my talks, my goal is for your attendees to do one of two things: (1) change the way they do business or (2) be affirmed that they’re going in the right direction and move forward with courage.

Here's what a few event and workshop attendees are saying.
