I’d Be Honored To Speak At Your Event

Danielle Desir is a speaker and host of The Thought Card Podcast.

Podcast Marketing Coach & Growth Strategist

Hey there, I’m Danielle Desir Corbett a 4x author, 4x grant-funded podcaster, and founder of WOC Podcasters (Women of Color), a podcasting community dedicated to educating and amplifying Women of Color audio creators and professionals.

In 2018, I launched a podcasting community for Women of Color podcasters and my affordable luxury travel and personal finance podcast, The Thought Card Podcast.

In addition to sitting on the Podcast Business Journal board, I co-produced Millennial Wealth Builders, a 3x-grant funded, 12-part audio docuseries highlighting Women of Color building wealth.

As a podcast marketing coach, I help indie podcasters expand their skills, improve their visibility, and organically grow their audiences and income.

I have had the honor of teaching thousands of people about podcasting within my community as well as at events like Podcast Movement, Podfest, She Podcasts LIVE, Afros and Audios, and more. I also co-host an annual virtual podcasting summit highlighting speakers of color called, Podthon.

I’m available for speaking engagements, workshops, and panels, in these areas:

  • Growing and monetizing a podcast
  • Building engaged communities and paid memberships
  • Finding grant funding as a small business owner and creative
  • Creating multiple streams of income as a content creator

When I speak, my goal is to share practical advice that sparks taking action. You can expect an insightful and engaging session tailored to fit your audience’s needs.

Most recently in 2022, I launched a newsletter called Grants For Creators where I share funding opportunities for US-based authors, writers, journalists, podcasters, filmmakers, photographers, and artists.

I was very excited that Danielle accepted our invitation to join the International Podcast Day broadcast in September 2020. Her “Be Your Own PR: How to Organize a Podcast Tour” provided one of the most unique presentations that have been shared during our event. She shares actionable steps for podcasters, provided a host of best practices to consider, and outlined hacks for finding new leads. Her energy and personality shined throughout her presentation. Danielle was a wonderful speaker and I would highly recommend her for your event or seminar!

Danielle was a guest in my premium coaching program, The Swift Inner Circle, as the ladies in the program requested a podcasting expert. The value, wisdom and expertise Danielle provided was incredible, and everyone left with pages and pages of notes on the exact steps they needed to take to create, produce, and market their podcasts. Danielle answered every question coherently, with grace, and evidence that she really does know her stuff when it comes to all things podcasting. I can’t wait to work with her again, and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a podcasting expert for their program or next event.

I was very pleased that Danielle accepted our invitation to host a webinar for Temple University, Digital Innovation Marketing master’s program (DIM). The “How To Get Booked on Podcasts Without a PR Team” webcast was an absolute success!! Danielle shared extremely valuable insights with the audience on how to learn the benefits of collaborating with podcasters, the dos and don’ts to pitching, and simple ways to improve their pitch acceptance rate. Attendees were impressed with the actionable tips that she provided! Danielle is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about her work and it transpired throughout her presentation and Q&A portion of the webcast. I would absolutely recommend her for your webcast or conference!

Danielle was a speaker at a virtual summit I co-hosted, and she was an absolute asset for the event! She presented on how to create a membership program, and the entire strategy was laid out with clarity and honesty, as she took attendees behind-the-scenes to see exactly what she did to see success, including both wins and struggles. As someone who runs a membership myself, I found myself excitedly scribbling notes as Danielle gave me new things to try in my own program. Additionally, Danielle provided detailed answers during the Q&A portion of her session, adding additional value. I would highly recommend Danielle as a speaker!

We needed someone to speak on a very niche subject in our virtual summit. Lo and behold, Danielle actually has a course that covered the topic – so it was a natural fit!
Danielle, communicated with us numerous times before the event and even hopped on to do a 15-minute bonus live stream a couple weeks before the virtual summit.
She is a Team player. A constant giver. A well-versed speaker. Oh, and her slides were great too!
