About the Founder
Dayo Kefentse is a Toronto-based communications manager, broadcaster, writer and journalist. For more than 15 years, she has had a hand at either telling stories, or guiding the narrative for organizations across Toronto, across Canada and across borders.Rumoured to be born with a microphone in her hand, as a teenager Dayo was found interviewing her siblings and cousins as her first subjects. And then at 17, after hand-writing a 'Letter to the Editor' to the Toronto Star and seeing it published, she knew she was destined for a communications career. Since then, she has told the stories of hundreds of people who were later featured in magazines, television shows and radio programs across Canada. Listeners across Toronto first met her as a journalist on 'Metro Morning' and 'Here & Now' in Toronto. She has also contributed stories to CBC News in Windsor, Ontario, Global News, CITY News, The Toronto Star and Rogers Television's 'Toronto Living'. In addition to her work with DM&C, she has contributed as a Manager of Media Relations for the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am / Parapan Am Games, Canada's largest ever multi-sport event, and University of Windsor. She has developed media literacy workshops and specialized curriculum for students at Centennial College in Toronto.
