Dani grew up in Australia, working through a variety of media and marketing related roles, before landing in the UK in 2018. Dani brings her wealth of experience to True where she leads on the marketing and brand activities, as well as conjuring up amazing events across True House to bring the community together.
I love the world of entrepreneurship & innovation. When I heard about True, I knew that I wanted to be a part of this world every day and play a part in scaling a company that genuinely wants to do business in a better way, helping founders / companies reimagine products and services for the future.
I get to tell stories and create experiences that connect people. This sparks curiosity about what we do and how we do it so that everyone wants to get involved.
I love the variety and the interesting people I get to work with. I don’t love that I can’t say yes to everything (even though I usually want to!)
Canva – it’s an incredible business idea that democratises design skill and really empowers all kinds of people, brands, companies, charities etc to level up on their brand outputs. Also the fact that it’s one of the few unicorn start-ups that are actually profitable, they have strong moral values and direct a lot of profits toward charitable efforts globally. As an expat, I love to see Aussie brands paving the way!
I’ve been lucky to have a few colleagues that I’ve worked with along the way who have encouraged me by sharing new opportunities or supporting new routes I’ve wanted to explore. And of course, my mum - she taught me the importance of continuous education, hard work, a love of travel and the power of a pivot (she has enjoyed three very different career paths whilst also juggling being a working mother).
Danielle’s expertise at True:
Dani leads on all things marketing, from creating engaging, educational (and fun) events and workshops at True House to meaningful partnerships as well as all things internal and external comms.
When designing plans for our HQ in London, we wanted to breathe new life into our workplace, to create a warm, welcoming space for our team and community with collaboration front of mind. Art plays a stand-out role in achieving this.
Did you know that 80% of consumer spending is done by women (a total of $20 trillion) and yet only 2% of all VC Capital is in all-women led businesses. These numbers shed a disappointing light on the industry - and business landscape more broadly - and so we invited the brilliant women of our community to discuss topics such as this on International Women's Day in a panel hosted at True House.
“Ella is super smart, hugely experienced, incredibly energetic and completely down to earth — everything she has achieved she has earned through hard work and determination, which I love. Oh, and she talks. A lot.”
"Thea is diligent, creative and always generous in sharing her marketing knowledge. The way to her heart (depending on the time of day) is an earl grey tea, a pint of craft beer or a soft serve ice cream!'
