New Member Spotlight – Danielle Dobkins

Danielle Dobkins

By: MPI Ohio | Jan 21, 2019

Danielle Dobkins 
Embassy Suites by Hilton – Columbus/Dublin

Who are the most important people in your life?  I have a brand new husband who makes life so much fun.  Also, my mom and my 2 sisters are always my corner.
Who do you work for and what is your role?  I am the Corporate Sales Manager at Embassy Suites by Hilton – Columbus/Dublin.

What is the best thing about your job?  Our Sales Team is a very close group and we have some much fun together.  The work-life balance this job offers is also a huge benefit that I’m really enjoying.  

What are the 3 most important skills you use at work?  Prospecting skills, listening skills, and excellent follow-up/follow-through skills

What one piece of advice would you give to someone beginning their career in the Meeting Industry?  Networking in the industry is key.  I have gotten access to jobs due to networking and that’s really changed the direction of my carreer and has allowed me opportunities I’m not sure I would have otherwise. 

What super-power would you love to have to help you do your job better?  I would love to have the power to know what people are thinking.  We get a lot of RFPs and you never get the opportunity to speak directly to the client.  If I was able to know what they were thinking I might be able to fill out my responses better in order to win more business.


As a new member, we want to make sure you get the most out of your membership and feel welcomed into our community of meeting professionals. It is our mission to provide innovative and relevant education & networking opportunities as well as business exchanges. From time to time we like to highlight our new members to help introduce them into our member network.
