But life wasn’t always this fun.

Danny grew up in low-income housing surrounded by drugs, crime and violence and lost friends due to gun violence. He was headed down the wrong path and was either going to end up in jail or dead like so many of his friends.

He chose to change his thinking and his life. Danny went to university, played basketball and tried to get a degree and a “good job.” He ended up dropping out of university and eventually found himself in the corporate world managing training and coaching. He finally got his”good job!” But that wasn’t good enough he wanted more! His mission was bigger than working in a corporation. He wasn’t happy in his job, he overworked, overweight, and he felt stuck in his life. He knew he had to make some changes in his life.

He decided to start his own company as a consultant and speaker, launched his book, and began life and business coaching. This was the beginning of his mission to speaks on stages and coach individuals to find that inner champion and create the life they deserve!

How Coach Stone Helps You Develop a

Champion Mindset

Leadership Speaker

I love connecting with audiences both small and large. Over the years I have been blessed to have spoken at conferences, retreats, seminars, meetings groups, and other groups. Engaging people in thought, laughter, and activities that get them thinking and acting in new ways is what I believe leads to real, sustainable change. I speak on topics from Building Your Confidence to Taking Control of Your Life to Living Your Legacy and more. I cannot believe I have been a public speaker for almost 20 years!
