DANIEL WOODCOCK, Peacock Social & Drone Works Toledo

Daniel Woodcock is president and CEO of Peacock Social, a social media consulting firm that focuses on non-profits and mission-based organizations. He started this business to work solely with non-profits and has grown that into a six-figure business that has worked with over 30 local and regional non-profit organizations on their digital marketing and social media. Reaching over 10 million people last year for these brands, he helped these organizations navigate the digital engagement space through the pandemic and re-organize their product offerings. Because of this hard work, he was selected for the Leadership Ohio 2021 cohort. He started a second business, Drone Works Toledo Media, and became an FAA-licensed unmanned aircraft pilot to highlight regional and local highlights via drone photography.

For extracurricular, Woodcock is most passionate about coaching over 40 startups and founders on pitch presentations while working for University of Toledo’s Launchpad Incubator; starting a non-profit (downtown419) with a few friends; hosting 10 events highlighting Toledo’s hidden gems like a holiday Trolley tour and rooftop party series; and international service projects around disease prevention and clean water access. Some Rotary International projects he helped with last year include funding an Infectious Disease Unit at the National Hospital Abuja in Nigeria; a Clean Water Project for a rural village of 2,000 and school in Chilumba, Malawi; a sustainable pediatric cardiac program that helped 50-plus Romanian children with congenital heart disease in Bucharest; and a project in Kumbo, Cameroon to build 18 classrooms in three primary schools and three libraries.

He previously served as president of EPIC Toledo, the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Young Professionals program; president of the board of trustees to the Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority (TARTA), and as a Chamber of Commerce board member.
