I love what I do!

Are you planning an event? Are you seeking an uplifting speaker and entertaining storyteller who engages audiences with ease? If so, let's talk! Based in Raleigh, I will travel anywhere to make a difference in the lives of college students, young adults, and established professionals. I offer big picture perspectives derived from determination, discovery, and a professional background that began at SeaWorld Orlando, Universal Studios, and Hilton at the Disney Resort.

I have been blessed with many exciting opportunities to inspire humans at career expos, colleges, conferences, companies, job search support groups, and non-profit organizations. Here's a sampling:

* Capital Area Workforce Development

After starting my career as an interviewer at three vacation destinations, I joined the career services staff at the University of Central Florida. This position afforded countless opportunities to educate and inspire students, both individually and in groups. My passion for making a difference in the lives of youth led to a nomination as a Student Affairs Outstanding Employee of the Year Finalist.

For 15 years. I traveled throughout seven states to facilitate interactive career transition workshops that were designed for professionals whose employment had been impacted by downsizing. This role allowed me to fully utilize my blended style of delivery while inspiring humans who were going through significant change.

My Bachelor of Arts was earned at Western Illinois University. Through CPP, Inc., I am certified in the Myers Briggs Type Indicator.

Did I mention I love what I do!?

“In the process of my career transition, I have found Dan’s assistance to be invaluable. His 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. I would recommend Dan Galloway to anyone looking for guidance during a career transition.

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!

I had the pleasure of attending Dan's presentation at a recent Triangle Networking Group meeting. Dan creatively weaved his passion for music into an energetic and engaging session around career management and transition. Dan is a dynamic speaker who not only captivates the audience, but he pulls you in as an active participant. He has this unique ability to convey complex topics in a way that truly makes sense. Plus, it's fun! Throughout the presentation, he shared his perspective and provided helpful tips on networking and managing your career. I highly recommend Dan as a motivational speaker and career coach ... you won't be disappointed!
