How to Become (and Remain!) the Very Best of the Best

Target Audience: General Interest

In a world that is more crowded, messy, and complicated than it ever has been, it has never been so important to stay current and competitive. Our ability to survive and thrive hinges on our ongoing learning and growth – but the tools and institutions that we’ve historically depended on to support that learning and growth are out of step and out of touch. In this talk, we’ll explore cutting-edge research into the best ways for humans to learn, and explore specific skills to acquire, steps to follow, and structures to put in place to help you become, and remain, the very best of the best.

Ditch the Resumes to Attract the Best and Brightest

Target Audience: Executives, HR Leaders, and Hiring Managers

Finding top talent is a perennial challenge for executives, HR leaders, and hiring managers – and it’s only getting harder. Research shows that success is best predicted by traits like grit, resourcefulness, and comfort with ambiguity – none of which are reflected by resumes, or screened for by application tracking systems! This outside-the-box session will support your organization to hire great people and stand out as a competitive employer.

Designing Great Courses in a Digital Age:
The Formula for Online-First Education

Target Audience: Instructional Designers and Learning Professionals

The pressure to design impactful trainings has never been greater; leadership demands engagement, completion, and ROI, while end user expectations are set by the unreasonably high bar of commercial-grade software and Netflix. We’ll cover the behaviors and needs of online learners, how technology fits in, the role of accountability and coaching in supporting student success, the distinction between intentional and interstitial content, and more.

What Audiences Say

I loved how Danny customized his presentation for our audience. The talk was engaging, inspiring, and there were a lot of valuable takeaways. I also appreciated how he made himself available to talk attendees who had questions afterwards. The overall feedback was great – we’re used to very high caliber speakers at Yale, and Danny fit right in. In fact, he was brought back for another event a few months later and I would definitely bring him back to speak again and recommend him to other event organizers.
