Colleges - Guest Speaking

“Dan will fire up the crowd and leave them laughing and informed Dan has a unique way of sharing his experiences that will keep you coming back for more. I have seen Dan's presentations on three occasions, and all were thought-provoking and fun!”

– Bob Konkel

“When I was director of a program of adult education at Duke Continuing Studies, I hired Dan regularly for several years to lead workshops in customer service, career change, and other self-development areas. He was one of the most successful presenters/trainers I worked with, always innovating, invigorating and inspiring class members, and garnering top student evaluations and, in fact, rave reviews. I recommend Dan very highly as a speaker or trainer. He can work magic!”

– Laurel Ferejohn

“Dan's high energy is infectious – he has the rare ability to bring out the best in people around him. The humor he effortlessly integrates while instructing puts everyone at ease and quickly creates an amiable atmosphere. Through my interactions with Dan I have been inspired to discover a career for myself that brings me as much happiness as Dan’s career obviously does for him.”

A Love for Inspiring Students


Through entertaining inspirational talks given to audences of up to 1,700, I have inspired students at Duke University, North Carolina State University, Wake Forest University, Wake Tech Community College, Wake County Lifelong Learning, and ECPI. My love for inspiring the planet's future leaders began while in a full-time Career Services role at the University of Central Florida (UCF). In this role, I educated students on the fundamentals of interviewing, negotiation, networking, and resume development through talks and individual coaching. While at UCF, mu dedication for making a difference lead to the nomination as a Student Affairs Outstanding Service Award Finalist.  Additional value I bring college students is my experience in recruiting capacities at SeaWorld, Hilton (Disney Resort), and Universal Studios.
