Speaking Engagements

Looking to shift perspectives with a speech on influencer marketing, storytelling, world travel, and more? You’ve come to the right place.

Over the past several years, Dalene has travelled the globe giving seminars and keynotes to audiences of brands and influencers alike. There is no one else on this planet who can speak with the cumulative perspectives that she brings:

  • National Geographic Traveler of the Year.
  • Nomadic traveler for almost 8 years across 60 countries.
  • An innovator in the influencer marketing space, earning a prestigious W3 “Best in Show” award for the HMI Creator House concept.
  • Renowned travel content creator, earning accolades such as “Voice of the Year” by BlogHer (twice), and twice a NATJA medalist for Best Independent Travel Blog.
  • Leukemia-slayer, competitive curler, board game nerd. (Not sure how those are relevant to her talks? Book her to find out!)

“Dalene’s take on telling the story of adventure was a fantastic example of how powerful authenticity and leaning into brand values can translate to sales ROI. She used a combination of relatable real-life examples and her own experience in storytelling to demonstrate to our team of advisors how showcasing small moments can both inspire and change behavior. We appreciated having her speak during our event, and for helping our team to think more critically about how their own travel stories can also be powerful sales tools.”

~ Allison Clark Villasenor, AAA Northeast (Club Adventures)

“The Travel Media Association of Canada (TMAC) recently had the pleasure of hosting Dalene to speak to our members about working with influencers in a post-peak pandemic world. To say the webinar was successful is an understatement. The feedback was a resounding two thumbs up. Dalene came prepared with stats, real-life examples, and plenty of anecdotal experience that was useful to both our industry members and our media members.”
