Not easy to do with a room full of highly successful ‘A’ type sales personalities – but he did it!!” Alex Petrini, Event Planning, BMO Bank of Montreal
How Does Dan Do It?
Dan is currently the CEO of an international leadership training company. His business intelligence has helped transform the mindsets of associations and world-class organizations around the globe.
As an All-American athlete whose thirteen-year football career was cut short by a paralyzing injury, Dan truly understands resiliency. He’s a credible expert on personal motivation and how to take ourselves to the next level. Consequently, Dan has worked with Super Bowl Champions and many professional and NCAA teams to help them raise their bar and build them into winning organizations.
Dan is the speaker meeting planners call on when their organization is facing an economic down turn, loss of market share, down-sizing, slumping sales, low morale, or in a merger/acquisition where you need to amalgamate two cultures into one united team focused on the same visionary dream.
Dan explains that every audience member deserves the answers to three categorical questions in order for the speaker to connect with attendees and have maximum impact:
Dan has been teaching Public Speaking at the university MBA level since 2007, and teaches his students that a speech is never about the speaker – it’s always about the audience, seeking to bless, not impress. Dan teaches his students that anybody can write and memorize and recite a speech. But that only makes him a professional presenter, and any actor can do this. A true professional speaker is one who continuously prepares himself to speak.
Dan’s experience has taught him that part of that preparation is to make sure he makes every audience member deeply think, laugh out loud, and wipe away tears during his roller coaster ride through every emotion.
Dan is the modern day Napoleon Hill, who has interviewed Presidents of countries, Middle Eastern Sheikhs, the world’s most successful business executives, world champion athletes, celebrities and small business owners, and has documented what they have in common, what works, what doesn’t, and why.
Dan’s experience has reminded him that audience members don’t relate to our perfections, if we even have any. They relate to our imperfections. They don’t care as much about our successes as they do about our failures, and if we fell, what did we do about it? However, meeting attendees also need to know that the speaker is like them and yet was able to dream mighty dreams and do extraordinary ‘bucket list’ things that inspire them to do the same.
– Dan has soared to the edge of space and shares his unique 16-mile high perspective on thinking globally and acting locally to achieve ‘significance-the level beyond success;
– Dan has flown fighter jets with the Air Force Thunderbirds, which qualifies him to teach trust in a fascinating way, as the wingtips of the jets were only 6 feet apart going 600 miles per hour;
– Dan served on the Olympic Committee in 2002 and carried the Olympic Torch in the relay, which illuminated his sense of patriotism and desire to galvanize our country;
– Dan serves with the Secretary of the Air Force on her National Civic Leaders Board as a character/leadership development consultant for the U.S. military, which motivates Dan to motivate your people on the importance of coming to work with an attitude of service before self.
