He spent ten years flying supersonic all-weather fighters in the United States Air Force. In addition to this he was a test pilot and air show pilot as well as a speaker to civilian organizations in surrounding cities that were hard hit by sonic booms. He was internationally known as The Sonic Boom Salesman.
Upon leaving the Air Force he joined one of the nation`s largest sales companies. A year later, he was promoted to sales manager and guided his office in its industry-leading, record-breaking pace of doubling, tripling and quadrupling old records. Four years after joining that corporation he was promoted to First Vice President and assigned a district of eight offices and a staff of over 140. By teaching the same sound leadership principles to the eight branch managers that he had used, the company saw old records shattered. As morale and productivity soared, percentage of employee turnover dropped to near zero. In a five year period production increased over 800%.
Due to the increasing demands for innovative leadership and teamwork techniques that work, Danny packed his bags and has hardly unpacked them since. He is in great demand by companies and organizations nationally and internationally.
Highly acclaimed platform skills have earned Danny a place in the National Speaker Association Speaker Hall of Fame, a designation for platform excellence awarded to less than three per cent of the over 3200 member National Speakers Association. Danny is also an elected member of the elite Speakers Roundtable, a group of twenty of the most popular speakers in North America.
