Danielle Hampson created “The Authors Show®” more than 16 years ago when “podcasting" was not yet a word. The show was preceded by several other audio and video shows she produced and hosted online as well as on traditional radio. The success of “The Authors Show” encouraged her to start the production of a “twin” show in French, which saw its debut in summer 2020. With such longevity in the podcasting space, she is often asked to speak to publishing industry organizations and groups of authors on the topic of utilizing audio & video as a book marketing tool. Leveraging her pool of thousands of authors and other publishing industry relationships, in 2017 she launched "Give a Book Get a Smile", a literacy initiative to donate books to organizations catering to disadvantaged children and adults who have little to no access to books.
As a multilingual Cross-cultural Expert and International Business & Marketing Consultant educated in Europe, Danielle has traveled the world helping business executives in small and Fortune 100 companies develop & implement global marketing & distribution strategies, as well as a non-destructive testing specialist in the automotive and aerospace industries. As the founder of a business networking organization with multiple chapters across several states, she has also helped thousands of entrepreneurs & managers develop and improve their networking skills. Often referred to as the "Queen of Win-Win", it is that philosophy that has helped her gain the respect of clients across continents.
Ms. Hampson also puts her skills to good use volunteering time and resources with nonprofit organizations in the arts and in leadership. She has traveled multiple times to China to help accelerate women leadership in rural areas, and to teach university students business networking, interviewing and show production skills.
