Philly born and Brooklyn built, Davida E. Arnold is an innovative brand and communications strategist who excels in bringing ideas to life. Her agile consultancy , dea Strategy, connects brands to culture, manages partnerships and mobilizes on and offline communities. "Basically, I connect the dots between brands, clients and culture to create experiences," she says. A noted creator, she leverages over a decade's insights across marketing, media, copywriting and communications to consistently deploy award-winning activations, video content and experiences for brands and clients. Inspired by personal experiences and industry insights gleaned as SPOC for companies in the women's marketing and advertising space, she's committed to creating safe spaces for girls and women. Most recently, she launched Girl Game Changer™, a start-up connecting women to power, to speak to this challenge.

“Women and girls are 50% of the world population, and are underrepresented in industries, laws and society. This platform is tasked with amplifying our stories to develop cultural and economic capital via online and offline community organization and mobilization.”

A serial entrepreneur, she’s co-founded three restaurants, with Jolie Cantina, NYC’s 1st & only French-Mexican bistro being her latest. “Jolie celebrated its 5th year, thanks to an amazing team and community. Looking forward to more good times with good folks."

Davida's passionate about speaking on the intersectionality of culture, wellness, and growth with communities of creators. "There's so much to explore in the business cycle - from ideation to execution. Presenting allows me to give back to both the adventure and the adventurous."

She lives with her two very tall and very hungry sons, lots of sneakers, heels and books and two passports, each. “Travel, health, time and family are my greatest riches,” she laughs. Her superpowers? Love. Curiosity. Humor. "And Phillyness - aka grit and grace. It's in the water," she laughs.
