Client reviews

  • I have booked Dan three times and he’s a slam dunk every single time. His last talk had our attendees laughing, crying and thinking differently about what they do and how they do it. It was one of the top 5 best talks I’ve ever seen delivered in my 25 years as an event strategist. He’s flexible and easy to work with. Most importantly, he cares—about you, your organization, and if what he’s sharing is truly resonating with your audience.

  • I do not think I would be exaggerating to say that Dan Heath was one of (if not THE) best speaker we have ever had.  …He is a fantastic presenter who has mastered the ability to deliver his message to an audience in a likable, engaging, entertaining, persuasive and memorable way.

  • The seminar was a great success and I think Dan is one of the best speakers of the world at the moment (together with Marshall Goldsmith). He combines a very relaxed style with a very intense message. That’s a brilliant mix.

  • Dan was incredible!!!!!! He really moved us and now we are calling ourselves moment makers. Dan is funny, motivational, and one of the best presenters I have seen. He was a blessing and exactly what we needed.

  • Dan brought down the house and was the highlight of the conference for many of the folks. Thank you again for bringing such a rewarding and valuable message to our group!
