Dana M. London's professional experience began over 25 years ago at E.F. Hutton in Los Angeles.  A few years later, she received special recognition from Bear Stearns' CEO, Alan Greenberg, for exemplary service during her time with that company in Chicago.  Shortly following her tenure in major financial houses, she established The London Financial Group.  This company handled personal and corporate plans, while also producing financial awareness seminars for churches and private sector groups.  Ms. London appeared in on-air morning news segments for the ABC news affiliate in Baltimore, MD, discussing topics of financial interest and hosting a call-in segment during the live news broadcast.  Her professional work and personal commitment to community service often causes her to share the stage with professional athletes, entertainers and public figures.  Her keen understanding of their unique challenges led to her development of the Transition Teams program.

Ms. London has appeared on many nationally syndicated television programs including Oprah, Minority Business Report, NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw, and Outside the Lines on ESPN.  Her work with Transition Teams caught the attention of legendary entertainer, Bill Cosby, and it was at his strong suggestion that she served as a special advisor to the New Jersey Nets Professional Basketball Team, when he was a part owner of the team.  Ms. London also served as a consultant for the Harlem Globetrotters Basketball Team, which was an especially endearing assignment since her grandfather, Byron Long, was a founding member of the team in 1927.  She continues to counsel and advise professional athletes, coaches and teams in their pursuit of maximum output.  In addition to her work in the sports and entertainment worlds, she has worked as an advisor to the executive staff in the headquarters at the NAACP and the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, where she continues to serve as a consultant.  ABC News' Nightline crowned her "Coach on Life" in a feature that showcased how she uses her own life and business experience to educate, encourage and inspire her clients.  Her excellent judgement and ability to bring calm to intense situations allows her to excel in the area of life crisis management for high-profile professionals.  Ms. London is a nationally, often-sought-after speaker, panelist, moderator, and consultant. Her commitment to making a positive difference in the community drives her mission when she speaks on the importance of making the most of life's experiences, both the good and the challenging.  As a 30-year survivor of domestic violence, her experiences serve as her motivation to help others get through and beyond their own experiences with domestic violence; often speaking to groups comprised of college-educated, high-profile professionals, a demographic with a high need for information, but particularly uncomfortable with the topic.   Her easy and affable delivery style allows her to be effective in every setting.

Personally, Ms. London is a proud, active member of the Chicago Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated and is an ordained minister; ordained under the solid, straight-forward teachings of Apostle David H. Brown at Living Word Christian Center in Maryland.  Ms. London is honored to have the opportunity to give back to Delta Sigma Theta in service as a member of the Midwest Region's Chaplains Council as well as to her undergraduate alma mater, Chicago State University, where she had the opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors of the Chicago State University Foundation and was inducted as an honorary member of the school's chapter of the Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society for her distinctive accomplishments.  Currently, Dana London is writing two books; developing a radio show; and speaking to various community groups across the country, using her experience and insight as she speaks to athlete, education, and women's issues.
