Dan Gilman has made his mark as a Design Director for over 25 years. His entrepreneurial spirit shines through the founding of Hummingbird Radio. This forward-thinking company aids hosts and creators in building their brands and formulating effective communication strategies. Dan’s other initiatives include radio, television, social media, and various social audio applications. He currently holds a Board Member position on Traverse TV.
Media and communications have been an integral part of Dan’s life, deeply influenced by his mother, Cindy Gilman. Cindy was a celebrated radio talk show host with her show, “Discover Your Potential,” which inspired audiences for over 40 years. With her passing in April 2021, Dan has dedicated himself to continuing her legacy of touching lives and fostering personal development.
Dan is presently under the mentorship of renowned motivational speaker Les Brown and the accomplished Mario Armstrong, focusing on nurturing sponsorships. Joining him in this mission is his new co-host, Anna Devere, who is a formidable presence who brings her own brand of talent and expertise. Together, Dan and Anna are committed to globally inspiring and motivating people.
Dan mirrors his mother’s ultimate goal: to touch lives and make a lasting, positive impact on individuals worldwide. Dan is eager to honor his mother’s legacy while creating his own unique path in the world of media and communication.
Anna Devere is a natural-born storyteller. As a child, she followed her innate curiosity for people by writing songs. That talent blossomed in her youth and led her to an early life in the theater. She received a Bachelor of Arts in her hometown of Las Vegas, where she continued her professional career on stage, tech theater, costume design, and stage management. When offered a job on the Gold Coast in Australia performing in Les Misérables, Anna found a new passion: world travel.
Since then, she has lived in the South of France and the United States from coast to coast. While always following her own adventurous heart, it is a love for people that motivated her career changes. She worked in advertising, sales and marketing, and family law, but the driving force has always been serving people. Anna was fortunate to sing with Gladys Knight in a Grammy award-winning gospel choir, where she discovered a love for “music that matters.” She now writes, records, performs her original songs and is featured in benefit concerts for several local and global non-profit organizations.
Most recently, Anna honed her storytelling craft as the writer and co-host of the Celebrate Every Day podcast. This bite-sized history show won multiple Davey Awards for Social Good and Education while entertaining a worldwide audience in the millions during the past four years. Her latest venture brings things full circle with a co-host spot on Discover Your Potential. The show continues the legacy of Cindy Gilman’s radio show by the same name. Alongside her son, Dan Gilman, Anna enjoys finding an even more profound sense of purpose. Her curiosity has never been more enlivened in the areas of holistic health, neuroscience, and exploring the boundaries beyond accepted paradigms. In her forthcoming book Seeing Like A Storyteller, Anna hopes to ignite that same fire to create a purpose-driven life. She truly believes that the best is yet to come.
