Linda Spradley Dunn
CEO and Founder/Odyssey Media

Linda Spradley Dunn spent fourteen years at IBM, where she received numerous awards and moved quickly through the ranks but always knew she would one day be her own boss. Armed with world-class training and a disciplined sales technique that placed customers at the center, Dunn stepped out on her own. 

Dunn understood the health care industry and established one of the first healthcare call centers in Newark, NJ in 1994.

Twenty years later, Dunn still commands the ear and marketing dollars of Fortune 500 companies seeking her advice on multicultural marketing strategies and access to her powerful network of multicultural, affluent, and influential women.

Odyssey Media is a Marketing and Communications Company, with clients such as Prudential Financial, Intel, Johnson & Johnson, The Coca-Cola Company, AT&T, and many others.

Dunn’s world-class, exclusive professional and personal development retreats, travel experiences, research, and newly formed digital communities have enriched and connected multicultural women of every field of endeavor. Dunn has been profiled by Crain’s, Essence magazine, Fox News, Huffington Post, Black Enterprise, and the Steve Harvey show.

Dunn is credited with starting her daughter’s Girl Scouts troop and growing her service unit from one to fourteen troops, which now consist of over 250 girls.
