Having to wear his older sisters’ clothes to school because his parents felt that saving a few bucks was worth his utter humiliation, Danny Pehar learned to get through tough times by putting a comical spin on things.
Danny began his corporate life by taking an entry level job so entry level he was told he needed to be promoted just to reach the bottom. Working his way up from underneath the bottom, he has sold and worked on multimillion-dollar projects as an entry-level employee, manager and director.
His work as a motivational keynote speaker has seen him inspire thousands of professionals for organizations such as Microsoft, TD Bank, TELUS and the City of Toronto.
In addition to his business success, he is a mixed martial arts enthusiast, a children’s book author, best-selling author and a stand-up comedian with fans in Canada, Australia, Europe and the United States.
Whether he has succeeded as a champion or taken a brutal beating, Danny has a story to tell that will make you laugh, make you think and make you awesome!
WHY DANNY DOES WHAT HE DOES
Danny decided to make his foray into the world of professional speaking and corporate training after a heartfelt encounter with a grocery store cashier. While ringing through Danny’s groceries, the cashier told him that she had been thinking of taking her own life but had re-considered because of a positive anecdote he had previously shared with her while waiting in the checkout line.
It was then Danny realized that a bad day, no matter how extreme, can be improved with even the slightest change in perspective.
