- Tell us about your nonprofit.
The Delray Beach Marketing Cooperative (DBMC) is a partnership between the City of Delray Beach, the Community Redevelopment Agency and the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce. The DBMC’s mission is to attract people to the City, create a positive image and increase awareness of Delray Beach for a positive economic impact through Destination Marketing, marketing programs, special events and community collaboration. Chances are if you have read or seen something about Delray Beach in the media, or have attended an event in the City it has been touched by our office. Our small team of four with the help of our wonderful partners create some of the largest events in the city and put on Christmas for the whole month of December. Through writing and media we reach millions of people around the world with news of our lovely town.
- What is your favorite part/design of your office space and why?
Our office nicknamed the Bat Cave for the lack of windows and the superheroes that reside here is often filled with an assortment of interesting items from all of our events, but our bright red couches and walls that you can write on are favorites of ours and our guests. It creates a comfortable, creative environment in which to meet or brainstorm. Coming up with creative marketing strategies and new ideas is part of our job and being able to express those on our dry erase walls, and throw ideas around with those in the room is fantastic. And then there are always the long days when just need to kick back, throw your feet up and conduct business on your phone or laptop from the comfy red couch. Guests are known to stop by for meetings and end up hanging out for hours like they are at home in their own living rooms.
- If you could use one word to describe the feel of the office space, what would it be?
Santa’s suit lives here so I’d have to say …Magical.
