    "Dan was incredible! He was entertaining, motivational, and he connects his stories to thoughtful and actionable takeaways that the audience valued. After his keynote there was a huge line to meet him and get his book signed. In fact, the audience raved about him so much we called him back and asked him to keynote our next event too! We have hosted hundreds of speakers through the years and Dan was the highest rated we have ever had.”
