” One of the biggest fears we have in life, is becoming poor. Financially unsuccessful. But when you start the game at the bottom you know how to stretch a dollar to last a day. So once you get to the top you ain’t afraid to fail cos you know even if you lose everything, you can still make it with a dollar a day. That’s when you start to take risks. You reach above mediocrity, you aspire to do insane things. Cos you are not afraid to go back. Once you know how to stretch a dollar you know that success is not in the money you make but in the fears you overcome. “

As Elvis Presley is the superstar of Rock ‘n Roll, Dananjaya is the superstar of Public Speaking. I had the pleasure to attend both, a keynote and a rockin’ seminar in Borås, Sweden. At both times Dananjaya transformed the audience under my very nose. If you are looking for a speaker who will transform your audience, Dan is the one to hire.

From our initial contact to the delivery of the event Dananjaya has been a pleasure to work with; humble, professional and a soul full of energy.It was a privilege for me to make acquaintances with such an amazing individual and I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Dananjaya as an impactful presenter/speaker, a true HR expert, a born motivator and a wonderful professional to work with.
