What People Are Saying About Danny's Speaking
Hi Mr Stone, I am an NSCC student and just listened to you motivational online talk. I was inspired by it. I am a little different than the average student in that I am retired from long career in the Canadian Armed Forces and going back to school for the enjoyment of learning and maybe a hobby career after. ç

Hi Danny, I just wanted to thank you again for your talk with our players. Personally I was able to take a few things away from your discussion with us specifically the 5 M's for morning routines. Our players were very engaged during your time with us and I know that many of the points you brought up were relevant to their lives. Thank you for taking the time to work with our group we are eternally grateful.

Hey Danny I just saw your speech for the NSCC orientation. You are very inspiring and gave me lots of great advice for moving forward in my passion. Thank You!
Your speech was so inspirational. Thanks for sharing your story about growing up. Lately, I have been feeling alone and not worthy. I feel like no one understands me. When you spoke about loving yourself and told us that we are special and worthy I believe you. Thank you for making me understand this about myself.

The feedback from Danny’s presentations was amazing. His speech about being the driver of your life and how you don’t need permission to be great really inspired the youth. He is a down-to-earth, keep-it-real speaker that mixes in powerful stories and humour to connect with the audience. Danny is someone who deeply cares about people and that comes across in his keynote conversations. I also heard some of the students reached out to him and sent him messages on social media and he responded to each of them
ErnestineYouth Outreach Worker
Thank you for sharing your journey with our young people. It was amazing to hear you speak about the various ways to think about what success could look like and how we can achieve or start thinking about careers at a young age. Opportunities present its self in multiple ways and you’ve reminded us to think differently, for example, we realize that our strengths are within things that we enjoy and do every day. Being able to turn existing talent into something of a career can be possible by doing more research and taking up any learning opportunities available. Thank you so much for coming to the Success Beyond Limits Program!

HIgh School Student
I hope you don't mind me tracking you down on social media, but I have to tell you this Danny...My son came home today and told me that you spoke at his school today. I have NEVER heard him so excited about a speaker. He said you spoke to him about being whatever he wants to be. You told him that he has greatness in him and to keep walking a positive path. Thank you so much for lighting a fire in my son!
I am Danny Stone came to our community centre today. When you talked about not asking permission to be who you want to be or do what you want to do, I felt that. I felt like you were talking directly to me. You are so inspirational. I'm ready to be myself and do what I want to do to better myself. Thank you for inspiring me.
Danny has an amazing ability to connect with students and teachers. Everyone in the room was hanging on to his every word. We were all so tuned in and wanted him to stay longer. When he told us that we have a greater mission than we know and to follow our curiosity I had never heard anyone say it like that. We will definitely have him back to speak to more students and teachers and staff.
