 Dahne Jobson has been in the Entertainment Industry since she was four years old; appearing in television commercials, such as Del Monte Pudding, Skippy Peanut Butter and a national campaign for Roundtree’s Macintosh Toffee – ‘Just give the pack a whack Jack!’

Dahne’s professional career in the industry has been varied.  A Media Account Executive for Media Express Advertising Agency, she managed DreamWorks, Columbia Pictures, and 20th Century Fox accounts. Working for CBC in the Sales and Marketing Department, she managed other top drawer accounts, such as Pepsi, Clorox, and Bayer. Dahne has also been deeply involved with Toronto’s premier cultural film festival, The Toronto International Film Festival.

Rounding out her impressive professional credentials, Dahne also has many years experience Writing, Professional Speaking, Corporate and Retail Advertising/Marketing/Sales.

In her current position as Chair, Toronto Media Network Steering Committee, Dahne draws on her personal focus on social issues and continued professional development to help usher in a democratic, community-centric, media platform for diverse conversations and points of view.

A social entrepreneur, Dahne published the community magazine, The Village Press Magazine. The focus of the magazine was to cast a spotlight on the people and places in the small world around her. This was manifest in the magazine’s most popular feature, The Neighbours Section, which showcased interviews with local residents where readers got to know a little more about the family living next door.

A 2016 Black Canadian Role Model Honours Inductee, Dahne strives to continue her social mission to connect, inform, inspire and transform people with her latest project, a web-based talk show, From Dusk till Dahne.
