Dan Clark Profile

Achievers Europe and Achievers North America have named Dan Clark one of the top ten speakers of the world for his effective style of getting a message home with a compelling story.

Dan is CEO/President of the communications consulting firm, Clark Success Systems. In addition to running his own company, he is a songwriter, journalist, and New York Times Best Selling author of 20 books including “Puppies for Sale,” which was adapted into an award-winning film of the same name. He is also one of the few individuals to have been inducted into the National Speakers Association’s prestigious Speakers Hall of Fame as well as earning the Association’s Certified Speaking Professional designation.

Dan started his speaking career rather unintentionally. He was playing football on a scholarship at the University of Utah when one day an accident during a tackling drill cracked one of his vertebrae and severed a key nerve to his shoulder. Doctors estimated that he had a less than 10% chance of recuperating, so when Dan fully recovered a couple of years later, his incredible story attracted invitations to speak about his experience. His riveting presence and natural talent as a speaker quickly got him noticed and he was asked to join Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” campaign.

Dan has worked with influential organizations such as Apple, NASA, Delta, and the Mayo Clinic, among others. He is an active supporter of the U.S. troops, having spoken at bases in Iraq and Afghanistan 23 times.

Dan gives between 150 and 200 presentations per year.

    In 1982, Dan was sponsored by Zig Ziglar into the National Speakers Association and soon received NSA′s highest earned designation, CSP — Certified Speaking Professional. Since then, Dan has spoken to over 2.5 million people in all 50 states, throughout Canada and in 15 other countries in Europe, Asia and former Soviet Union. Dan′s incredible story and million dollar business has been featured on over 300 national radio and television programs and in “Esteem” and “Entreprenuer” magazines.

    Dan is the author of 10 highly acclaimed books including “Puppies for Sale,” recently made into a motion picture filmed at Paramount Studios starring Jack Lemmon & Jesse James, musical score by Elmer Bernstein. Directed and Produced by Ron Krauss.

    What if instead of just talking at your next meeting, you actually modeled the message? Hiring Dan Clark as a keynote speaker is an important and exciting investment in the future of your people. But it should only be a beginning to your relationship with Clark Success Systems.

    Dan Clark believes it is possible to increase the value of the sizable investment you make in a meeting. How? By giving your attendees an experience that parallels what they are being asked to do when they leave the meeting. Instead of just hearing about change from the speaking platform, your group participates in addressing the change that confronts them. In today′s world, that translates to working cooperatively with others, knowing that the best solutions can come from anyone, anywhere in the organization.

    Dan Clark′s extraordinary corporate management book, “INTERNAL EXCAVATION — Management from the Inside Out,” is the structured text for all of our systems of success. From it, our consultants teach the Twelve Precepts of Being Fully Alive and prove that success is never final nor is it complicated when we become brilliant at the basics. The residual benefits? Increased Productivity & Profitability of Business, Strong Healthy Relationships, Performance with Fulfullment & Harmonious Balance!

Books by Dan Clark:

    Forgotten Fundamentals: The Answers are in the Box

    For decades we have heard corporate trainers tell us, Think outside the lines, you′ve got to think outside the box. What if the answers are still in the box?

    Most attend meetings and read books in search of new answers, when what we should be looking for are right answers. Too many suffer from the paralysis of analysis, over-thinking the simple until it is complicated.

    You Will Discover:

    • Some things are true whether you believe them or not.
    • Everybody is entitled to their opinion, but nobody is entitled to the wrong facts.
    • Change from the outside-in is reactive and creates pressure.
    • Change from the inside-out is proactive and creates power.
    • We must stretch before we strengthen and all the strengthening occurs in the area past the point of discomfort.
    • Potential is never exceeded, only misjudged.
    • Competitive advantage comes not from doing more than the competition is doing, but from doing what they are not willing to do.
