dameSpeak was founded at the beginning of 2021 amid a worldwide pandemic and economic crisis. Alex Colley and Lori Davies worked together a few years prior, kept in touch, and both found themselves unemployed during that time. As luck would have it, Lori was on LinkedIn and noticed that Alex was open to opportunities. Lori quickly messaged Alex and asked one simple thing, "Do you want to start our own business?" Alex enthusiastically replied, "Absolutely!".
They had their first meeting on January 13th, brainstormed the name, branding, services, etc. But mostly they discussed each other's strengths and weaknesses and how they could help small to medium-sized businesses thrive. After that one conversation, dameSpeak was born.
As a modern, digital marketing firm, dameSpeak is dedicated to helping businesses grow their brand trust with thoughtful, strategic digital content and initiatives. Let dameSpeak for you and your business. Contact us today.
