What Dan Clark Talks About:

Pure Motivation: Taking It to the Next Level
Dan Clark will take you on an emotional roller coaster ride to a place you’ve never been before, based on the realization that everything required to take yourself and your organization to the next level is already inside of you and your people.

What’s been holding you back is the belief that you must think outside the lines, and think outside the box. But what if the answers are still in the box? Change from the outside in is reactive and creates pressure with a victim mentality. However, change from the inside out is proactive and creates power through an understanding that no matter what our past has been we have a spotless future. Most hate their jobs, and only look forward to Friday instead of Monday. They think they are paid by the hour, when in reality we are paid for the value we bring to that hour. They think success and happiness are found in programs and processes outside themselves and their organizations, instead of within. They forget that pressure is not something that is naturally there. It’s created when you question your own ability. When you know what you can do there is never any question.

In this mindset, and as a quantifying template for his remarks, Dan builds a four-cornerstone box as a metaphorical reminder that when we answer who we are and why we should, it allows us to become our own motivational speaker and build our lives and our world on the solid foundation of: Perspective, Authenticity, Service Before Self, and Commitment to Excellence in All We Do.

Building a Winning Team: Dominating the Competition
It’s not all about team…teams lose! It’s about winning! Are you working with a group that is confusing activity with accomplishment, and realizing that the popular concept of turning me to we is not improving your organizational performance? Maybe it’s time to work with someone who has actually played on, coached, and worked with championship teams. Dan loves to share the Ten Commitments required to identify, attract, develop and retain winners, and teach how to help them continue to make winning personal as a unified well-oiled machine!

Closing Sales/Creating Customer Delight: Perfecting the Law of Attraction
Have you ever bought candy from a child you don’t know, or purchased something from late night television that you didn’t need, or subscribed to a magazine you will never read, or gone out of your way to fit something into your already crammed schedule? Specific techniques were used to get us to say yes! Becoming familiar with the how, why, when, and where these principles and methods can be most effectively used, will not only make you a master sales champion, but you will become a master motivator, master communicator, and major influencer in your world.

Your people will leave Dan’s session with an inspiring understanding that Sales and Customer Service are everybody’s business. From the point of view of an overall sales process engineering effort, customer service plays an equal role in an organization’s ability to generate income and revenue, and the most important role in generating loyalty, referrals and repeat business.

Therefore, Creating Customer Service Delight is a series of activities shared by everyone in the organization designed to enhance the level of customer satisfaction before, during and after a purchase, by creating the feeling that a product or service has exceeded the customer expectation. Four levels of expertise will be discussed including: Being brilliant at the basics; the difference between the sales process & a sales presentation; the seven deadly sins that sabotage closing the sale; and the seventeen principles and methods of influence.

Life Changing Leadership: Transforming from Successful to Significant

Successful people get what they want. However, individuals who live lives of Significance want what they get. Successful people identify themselves in terms of what they do and seek what’s impressive. Significant individuals identify themselves in terms of who they are and seek what’s important. In this powerful keynote or expanded seminar, Dan makes sure your purpose is what you say it is, and that your influence is what you need it to be, so instead of merely continuing to follow the highly acclaimed business, leadership, management gurus you have been quoting for years, you become one of them!

Your people will leave Dan’s session with an inspiring understanding that some things are true whether we believe them or not; everybody is entitled to their own opinion, but nobody is entitled to the wrong facts; and that we shouldn’t believe everything that we think. They will be reminded that successful managers are efficient in doing things right| and successful leaders are effective in doing the right things| but significant leaders relentlessly pursue a daily path of personal refinement and peak performance that creates and perpetuates both efficiency and effectiveness through obedience to the twelve highest universal laws of significance.

The Art of Significance: Achieving the Level Beyond Success
Dan’s new exciting, humorous, thought provoking and entertaining keynote speech is called, “The A.R.T. of Significance – Achieving The Level Beyond Success|” where he uses the acronym A.R.T. to take your people to a higher intellectual and emotional level of performance than they have ever been.  In his customary conversational way, Dan will teach your people to:

  • Increase your Awareness of: Relationships – we become the average of the five people we associate with the most; Time – we can’t always control what happens, but we can always control what happens next; and Perseverance – the sale doesn’t begin until the prospect says no
  • Focus on Refinement: Stretching – raising your bar using a time tested system of success; Finding Your Personal Why – once you answer ‘why|’ figuring out the ‘how-to’ is simple; and Trust – so people choose you, not just someone who does what you do 
  • Transform your life from Success to Significance – so you don’t just get what you want, but want what you get; Customer Experience – where every team member makes winning personal; and Teamwork – gaining the competitive advantage by doing what your competition is not willing to do

Dan always leaves his audience members in the most positive mindset and emotionally re-energized with a heart-set ready to conquer the world where they live and work! Guaranteed, your people will never forget Dan Clark and the way he changed their personal and professional perspectives on giving more and doing more simply because we can!
