Danielle Di-Masi is a futurist specialising in digital communications and social media engagement. She is obsessed with how technology and our human behaviour interacts. Danielle is a keynote speaker and a popular emcee; she is also a media commentator, writer for The Huffington Post and University Lecturer.
Danielle, along with an MBA, has won the International Business Award for the 2019 ‘Most Innovative Communications Professional of the Year, this is the third year she has won this award.
In previous years Danielle also won the international awards for ‘Most Innovative Woman in Marketing’ and ‘Female Entrepreneur of the Year’ and the Stevie award winner of ‘Woman of the Year’ - all for her work in business, education and technology.
Danielle’s main focus is her work as an international keynote speaker and ensuring her sessions not only have the most cutting-edge content and insights but also are dynamic, entertaining and actionable. She works between Australia and the USA holding strong relationships with tech giants in Silicon Valley which allows her to share the most up-to-date strategies and although Danielle is a University Lecturer she never gives a “lecture” as she always seeks to understand her audiences and their needs, business goals and obstacles to ensure her interactive sessions are game-changing moments.
Danielle spent over 14 years of her corporate career in Investment and Private Banking whilst studying her MBA. As the world became increasingly digital Danielle identified a broadening communications gap and so the past decade she turned her focus to researching how we connect and conduct modern business to ensure the digital experience is aligned with an effective customer experience strategy, ensuring both businesses and professionals perform at their best in this online space.
