Why Book Danny?


What can “America’s Leading Reading Ambassador” teach you and your organization about leadership? Plenty! Too many people have made success too complicated. The greatest leadership lessons aren’t found in the pages of financial magazines or in Ivy League corridors, but within the pages of nursery rhymes and on the elementary school playground.

Danny has managed the toughest audiences in America (public school students; a.k.a., your children/future employees), navigated one of the most challenging corporations in the world (the American public education system) and built positive and productive relationships between some of the most knowledgeable minds on the planet (parents and school administrators).

“Danny aspires to bring the best out of an individual by using his charismatic enthusiasm, humor, and motivational skills. It was evident that our employees walked away inspired and were eager for more Danny.”

Are you a parent (by the way, if you have only one child, Bill Cosby says you are not a parent…because you know who did it!)? Do you want your children to succeed? Danny has three children of his own – all raised by the same parents, in the same home, with the same nourishment and privileges. Yet his own children’s interests and talents are as diverse as the cereals at a grocery store. He wants his children to succeed, and he has learned different ways to meet each of their needs.

What are you doing to help the people in your organization succeed? Leaders come in myriad forms with different approaches and styles. What kind of leader are you? You want everyone in your organization to be leaders, don’t you? Danny has helped leaders succeed by building upon their interests and talents and those of the people in their organizations.

“(Danny’s) goal is to inspire others to make a difference themselves, and he was able to elicit from each of us our unique story so that we could motivate others. He made it so easy to share the details of our inspiration, bumps on the road, and successes. He is the perfect role model himself!”

Jacqueline Caster, President and Founder
