Danila Sigal is a corporate executive who had a long tenure at Procter & Gamble, Consumer & Market Knowledge (CMK), across various high rank positions (CMK Director, Global Duracell; CMK Director, Latin America Region). She is a mix of left-brain analytical thinking with right-brain visionary & creative abilities, currently blending all this experience as ambassador for music, health, fashion or beauty related fields.
Most of her career was centered in understanding low-income markets worldwide, and translating that knowledge into winning strategies. She played a fundamental role in carving the Latin America corporate vision & roadmap to get the Region back into a growth trend, co-leading multi-functional teams for two strategic pillars (Low Income Consumers & Superior Branding). In Duracell, her focus was bringing the P&G “consumer is boss” culture to further enhance that acquired brand’s global understanding. As a retiree, Danila is now member of the Global P&G Alumni Network; and was recently invited as speaker in the TEDx Geneva event hosted by P&G under the theme: “Reality Check” (YouTube video with over 70,000 views).
She is considered an inspirational & charismatic leader, with special talent in accomplishing results via building high-performance organizations, in favor of consumer well-being. She has a multi-cultural background, speaks several languages, concerned with humanitarian causes, especially cancer research, behind her own diagnosis, walking an incredible ordeal of metastatic recurrences, surgeries, radiation, and chemotherapy. Yet today, still in the battle, Danila stands up firm with a contagious positive attitude, which she uses to impulse others in facing difficulties by giving more attention to positive aspects of life and encouraging patients to take a proactive role in their own healing. In recognition to her work, was selected by the Susan Komen Foundation as an Honoree of the 2017 “Faces of Warriors” Campaign.
Author of “MY FOUR SEASONS” (available in both English and Spanish), a memoir in which Danila gives us a colloquial narration about her testimony. Further, she is also a songwriter, motivated by her father, a classical prodigy of his time, to use her passion for music as another vehicle to express her life-lessons as she battles cancer.
Executive producer and mastermind of a one-of-a-kind catalogue of inspirational multi-genre songs of her authorship (music & lyrics), Danila brings to life her journey with the typical ability of a corporate leader, forming a team of Grammy winner/nominee musicians which coupled with her unique artistic photographic Breast Cancer Awareness Campaigns launched every year (“Tócate”, “Attitude”, “Gratitude”, “Stand Up”), she has transformed an experience which could be considered as “difficult” into a catharsis from which emerges not only her own reflections, but also the possibility of sharing them with others.
Leveraging the vocal versatility of artists like Evan & Jess from Berklee College of Music, the young Venezuelan Sara Chesneau, and of course, her nephew, the prodigy pop singer Johnny Sigal, her repertoire has hit all worldwide music digital stores (reaching to date over 460,000 single streaming & downloads), with her story featured in over 100 combined TV shows (CNN, Telemundo, Univision, etc.), Radio programs & Press articles, across key Hispanic markets, especially Miami and Puerto Rico (“Tu Llegada” positioned in the Top 15 billboard charts). Although Danila prefers to stay “back stage” she occasionally sings her own songs, having launched an urban version of “Stand Up” and her most recent single “Un Tiempo Mas”. These releases count with several music videos and behind-the-scenes footage that can be enjoyed in YouTube (with over 150,000 compound views), produced by her company Sigal Productions or via the renowned Octopustudio Los Angeles & Miami.
Danila is a registered songwriter in SESAC Latina, and Voting Member of LARAS (Latin Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences / Latin Grammy), as well as Winner Honorable Mention 2014 in the International Songwriting Competition (selected Top 16 in the Latin Category, among over 18,000 contestants); Semi-Finalist 2015 (song “Vive Hoy”) and Semi-Finalist 2016 (song “Tu Llegada Balada”).
