Passion Testimonials

Dahlia’s Wine and Apps program is an innovative approach at making Event Technology approachable and entertaining. EventTech is the second largest spend by meeting professionals and yet few truly understand the market – it is important to have approachable presenters like Dahlia getting your attendees up to speed. The program also gives your attendees actionable steps and tools that they will instantly start to implement. (Which is how they will ultimately judge the quality of your organization’s program when they look back.) Book her!


It was truly a pleasure working with Dahlia as one of our speakers for the educational sessions on the show floor at IMEX America 2013 and the Future Leaders Forum.

Dahlia was very easy to work with and very flexible as she agreed on taking over an additional session that was cancelled last minute by another speaker. We received all her session details and speaker information in advance and she was always approachable.

Dahlia is a knowledgeable speaker about technology in the meetings industry and her sessions were very well attended. The participants’ feedback was very positive and many stated that the content of her sessions was very useful for their current role.

We were very happy to work with Dahlia as a speaker and we hope to work together again in the future.
