What people are saying about Dan:
“Dan is truly a connected leader in IT. From his contributions to publications, authoring of and contributing to numerous books, and especially as a panel moderator. Dan recently moderated the CIO Track at the 2018 Gateway to Innovation conference in St. Louis. His in depth research into all four panel topics and advance preparation of all panelists shined through. From his use of short videos to “tee up” each panel topic to his probing questions to panelists; each session was outstanding. Thank you Dan for helping make the G2I conference a success.”
“The FLGISA engaged Dan to speak at our annual conference on “Unleashing the Power of IT” and facilitate a CIO Panel on building the future workforce. I had the pleasure of working with Dan throughout this process. He helped set the tone for our conference which was geared on the new skill sets needed on the digital horizon for IT organizations. His message was insightful, thought provoking and inspirational. The way he lead the panel discussions tied together seamlessly the contributions of the panelists. There is a comfort level with Dan, the panelists and his audience that created an atmosphere of trust and sharing of information that had attendees commenting throughout the conference. I will certainly be engaging with Dan in my own agency going forward.”
