- Colleges, High Schools, and Youth Organizations
“Dan was entertaining, knowledgeable, insightful, authentic, and fun.”– Kathleen O' Grady, PCC, CALC
Question for You
Are you working at a college, high school, or youth organization that is seeking an uplifting guest speaker who makes a difference through a blend of energy, engagement, humor, and inspiration? If so, let's have a conversation to see if my offerings align with your needs.
My Background with Youth
While in a full-time Career Services role at the University of Central Florida (UCF), I educated students through group presentations and individual coaching on interviewing, negotiation, networking, and resume development.
While at UCF, my love for making a difference through engagement and enthusiasm led to the nomination as a Student Affairs Outstanding Service Award Finalist. I have also been a guest speaker at Duke University, North Carolina State University, Wake Forest University, ECPI, Wake Tech Community College, United Way, YMCA, and the GAP Teen Entrepreneur Retreat. Additionally, I emceed two teen variety shows that raised money for less fortunate families in the southeast.
While in an career consultant role with a global outplacement firm, I was chosen as the workshop facilitator of choice to conduct job search readiness workshops designed for recent college graduates. Additional value I bring students is my experience in recruiting capacities at SeaWorld, Hilton (Disney Resort), and Universal Studios.
