Danielle Francisco – Illustrado 300 Most Influential Filipinos in the Gulf
Entrepreneur – Podcaster
Entrepreneur, founder, and host of the Middle East business podcast ‘Drive to Succeed,’ Danielle Francisco equips aspiring entrepreneurs with strategic knowledge and insight to help them grow. He has also interviewed experts from different fields and covered various topics towards self-development.
Over his career, he has identified that consultants, coaches, and business owners don’t always have the right tools to market themselves without traditional media – thus creating “The Podcast Academy,” a two-day in-person workshop that covers starting, building and monetizing podcasts. Through this platform, he has created an ecosystem of service/solution providers that have added value to the podcast niche by giving advice and growth opportunities.
Danielle is an alumni speaker of FUN DXB and has also been invited as a speaker at the Hubpreneur community event, where they connect entrepreneurs and service providers through their mobile app.
“I’ve also had the opportunity to speak at the International Women’s Entrepreneurship Show alongside other experts in the field – from Phil Bedford founder of The Rebel Networker, John Martin St. Valery Founder of Links Group, Moustafa Hamwi The Passionpreneur and our very own Deborah Gay Aragon-Dayrit CEO of Azam Holdings LLC and Chairperson of Philippine Business Council,” he says.
