Audience Members Rave…

“Dayna starts from ground up in a way that no other speaker can. She literally enters a room, quietly evaluates the need, problem or crisis. She then does what any rock star would. In a musical metaphor, she stands up and loudly smashes a Les Paul into the ground until nothing is left but the strings. In reality, there is no guitar smashing, but she is that compelling a speaker. She does thorough research on your company or audience in advance. She then helps your company rebuild, excite, resolve, and renew the talent already on your teams. Her rock star stance and style will have you and your audience hooked. This pint-sized dynamo commands the corporate stage, reaches into the conference/audience for feedback, and is constantly taking the pulse of the room. Dayna gets it and then gets you results.”-Laura Spencer, Disney“I knew you were good and had forgotten just how good you are. Your great presentation was right on target for the students.”  Dean John Bowen, Conrad Hilton School / University of HoustonAbsolutely fantastic!  Thank you so much for closing our annual conference with style and humor.
