I have had the pleasure of working with Danny for several years and in various capacities during the time that I have known him. Danny is a truly inspirational thought leader who engages, entertains and develops via a high energy, positive and thought-provoking approach to making organizations and individuals better. We have seen a direct correlation between Danny’s coaching and speaking activity and progress with our Team’s development, both personal and with our customers. I would unreservedly recommend Danny as a speaker, coach and mentor for any organization looking to improve, be inspired, and drive success.
Piero Fusco, VP | TELUS Business Solutions
Danny is a phenomenal public speaker, he is motivational, and energetic. He immediately connects with his audience, by engaging them and personalizing his communication by telling stories from his experiences and effectively delivering a simple message that resonates with his audience. Danny is awesome, he delivers a strong message and leaves his listeners wishing for more! Strongly recommended!!
Dana Harper, Sr. Project Manager | Cyber Security and Technology Controls Portfolio | TD Bank Group
Danny is an exceptional person. Our association chose him to speak at its first networking meeting (we are 50 years old), we wanted a serious topic dealt with in an en-‘lightened’ way. Having never organized an event like this we were somewhat concerned and rather than stand by and watch he rolled up his sleeves and ended up becoming a vital part of the event design team, bringing new ideas and suggestions to every session. He was calm always looking for the high point to aim at. The night of our event he proved engaging, current and he connected with everyone in the room! Members who were normally quiet came forward with rave reviews about him and his way of telling a story that bonds with the audience.
A joy to listen to and work with!

Danny was easy to work with, accommodating in preparation for the event, attentive to the meeting focus, entertaining, motivating, and leaving the audience with many moments of self-reflection. Many individuals scored Danny high on the meeting survey and added extra comments on how much his message resonated with them. Thanks Danny for delivering such an ‘amazing’ message.
Nicki D’Acri, Executive Assistant to Deputy City Manager | City of Vaughan
I was really impressed with Danny’s ability to draw in the audience, captivate and keep them interested. When he was done talking, I felt like I knew him and we were buddies. I have since worked with Danny and he has helped me with my delivery and messaging. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs to do public speaking.

A sincere thank you for being a part of the InfoSec 2016 Conference Program and delivering an energetic content-rich and engaging presentation. The delegates couldn’t say enough about your session – 100% of the evaluations gave your presentation and your speaking style the highest possible ratings of 5/5.
What I appreciated most about the experience was that you delivered all that was asked for on or before deadline (bio, intro, photo, summary of session, presentation, etc.) you were well prepared, your presentation was organized to ensure delegates left with key learnings and it moved at a good, lively pace – all marks of a true professional. Thank you for making my job that much easier, and for making me look good!
I hope we can work together again, and I’ll take this opportunity to ask you to set aside June 4-7, 2017 for our Annual conference in Windsor. We absolutely have to have you back!
Anne Babej, Executive Director | Municipal Information Systems Association (MISA) Ontario
We hired Danny to deliver soft skills training to our team of technical engineers. Danny is personable and extremely down to earth which translates well to his audience. He is engaging and keeps his students focused while eliciting great responses. It is refreshing to work with someone who enjoys what they do as the feeling is infectious. I have worked with Danny previously and his work ethic remains concentrated on delivering an exceptional quality of service.

I have had the opportunity to work with Danny several times over the last 2 years. The insight, advice and careful timed execution of his ideas have helped me achieve great success in my business. As the founder of Oakpark Mortgage Group I am constantly looking for a competitive advantage and ideas that I could implement at a corporate level. After obtaining Danny for his services, not only have I been able to implement ideas to assist my company at a corporate level, I have been able to use his ideas and enthusiasm to develop a corporate culture empowering individual team members to further excel in their roles and fully realize their potential. I am truly thankful for everything he has done for me and my company and I’m also very proud to call him a friend.
Leo Marasovic, Founder, Broker of Record | OakPark Mortgage Group Inc.
Danny Pehar was our guest speaker at our Annual Core Values Day when we invite approximately 100 of our “star performers” to enjoy a day of fun, friendship and some “take away” lessons. I chuckle as I write this as Danny was so enthusiastic and “authentic” in his presentation and “authentic” is one of our Core Values.
Danny is real, he’s engaging and he’s very relaxed. He tells some very funny stories and in a way that is unique to his ability to be “awesome at being awesome”. Our audience was captivated and could relate to his stories – the room was filled with laughter and in some cases even tears – good tears though.
Danny gave perspective to current life issues/concerns and gave our “star performers” encouragement and tools to help them face challenges in their lives and in the world today. We were very fortunate to have found Danny Pehar and to have him as our guest speaker. I would highly recommend Danny to any group looking to find the good even, in bad times, and to communicate in a positive and encouraging manner.
