Dayna Steele is an amazing speaker who connects with her audience, brings humor and a strong message. Our fair members are still talking about her Rock Star principles.

Illinois Association of Ag Fairs Annual Convention


We loved having Dayna Steele as our keynote speaker this year! She taught us how to improve our businesses while telling us stories of her days in rock and roll radio. Her rock star principles of success were both inspiring and entertaining.

Must Love Travel and Kingdom Magic Vacations


The audience was on their feet and so energized by Dayna’s closing keynote. We ended the day on an incredibly high note! Days later I’m still getting compliments on finding her.

Confirmit B3B Summit


Dayna Steele is an amazing speaker and wonderful to work with! I’ve booked her for two separate events and received rave reviews! Thanks, Dayna, for being such a great partner at our RFMA 2016 annual conference in Nashville and DFWAE Association Day in Dallas!

Restaurant Facility Management Association (RFMA)


Our audience walked away with the tools to better engage their members and leverage connections to increase the impact of our programs and membership. You definitely rocked it!

Soroptimist International of the Americas


Dayna is a fabulous keynote speaker. She has spoken twice to professional womens’ groups at Shell. At the first event, she gave her trademark “Find Your Inner Rock Star” keynote address. It was funny and engaging. At the latest event, she was completely impromptu. I gave her a theme “Survive, Thrive, Reinvent” …. and she simply told stories for nearly an hour. She was riveting! Dayna’s stories are real. honest … and they challenge the listener to examine their own lives. I highly recommend Dayna as a keynote speaker for any corporate event.

Shell Women in Finance Together 


One of the best speakers. Engaging, entertaining, awesome stories, and just a great person. Thank you!

Greater Houston Convention & Visitors Bureau


I am still hearing “Rock Star” used in varying conversations all as a direct reflection of your session with attendees and employees – evidence that you really gave them something to think about!

VOCUS Users’ Conference


The Rock Star Interviews were AWESOME! We’ve received lots of positive feedback on your session. I’m looking forward to collaborating with you again soon.

Thank you for rolling with our technical and ‘food service’ difficulties so smoothly. We are huge fans of your work and hope to have an opportunity for you to speak to our group again in the future.

Texas Association of Life & Health Insurers


It was so great to have you here at the zoo. Your presentation was inspiring and perfect for our group!

Houston Zoo 


Dayna’s energy and enthusiasm were powerful. Her focus on the legacy of relationships and delivering exceptional rock star service at any level in your organization hits the mark. Impactful and a lot of fun!

Your suggestions are so clear and reasonable that it makes me wonder why I have not been following these parameters all along. I am thoroughly appreciative to the suggestions and will begin employing them in my own life right away. I also just ordered the paperback version of 101 Ways to Rock Your World from Amazon so I can share it with others. I figure that one way to network and share something of worth would be to pass on your book.
