National Speaker’s Hall of Fame


In 1987, Dan became the youngest ever to earn this prestigious award. Only 12 percent of the 5,000 + professional speakers worldwide currently hold the prestigious CSP “Certified Speaking Professional” designation - the National Speakers Association’s highest earned designation for individuals who over a minimum of five years as a full time professional speaker, have demonstrated extraordinary competence in Platform Skills, Business Management, Continuous Education, and Association Membership Involvement.


In 2005, Dan was inducted into the National Speakers Hall of Fame. Admission into the National Speakers “Council of Peers Award for Excellence” CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame® is a lifetime award for speaking excellence and professionalism, honoring professional speakers who have reached the top echelon of platform excellence. Inductees are evaluated by their peers through a rigorous and demanding process proving exceptional excellence in the five categories of message, presentation/delivery, experience, professionalism and collateral material. The award is not based on celebrity status, number of speeches, or amount of income. To date, 232 men and women worldwide have been inducted into the CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame®, including Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, Zig Ziglar, and former U.S. President Ronald Reagan.

2012 Utah Father of the Year

The Father of the Year Awards galas are hosted in cities across the country in a collaboration between the American Diabetes Association and the National Father’s Day Council. The councils in each city are comprised of community leaders who strive to heighten the meaning of fatherhood, while raising funds for philanthropic purposes. Awardees are selected because their peers and families recognize them as role model fathers who make family a priority, and influential leaders who are significantly balancing demanding careers and community involvement.
