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, I received a nomination as a Student Affairs Outstanding Service Award Finalist. While in a career consultant role at a global career management firm, I was chosen as the "workshop facilitator of choice" to conduct annual job search readiness workshops designed for recent college graduates. Additional value I bring youth is my experience in recruiting capacities at SeaWorld, Hilton (Disney Resort), and Universal Studios. 


“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!”
