Unique Presentation Style

Dan is known for delivering powerful, customized opening and closing keynotes in jaw-dropping style. He does handstands on podiums while discussing balance.

You get the idea. Dan uses every bit of his passion and ability to educate and inspire his audiences. The results and experiences are unlike anything any other speaker can offer.

Philosophy

Dan’s philosophy can be summed up by the title of his book, Off Balance On Purpose. He believes we’ll never achieve “perfect balance”.

Dan’s multi-dimensional view of success incorporates quality health, strong relationships, and meaningful contributions.
