Resilience, gratitude and overcoming obstacles with Daniel MacQueen

DAN MACQUEEN BIOGRAPHY

Dan MacQueen was a healthy, active 28-year-old who suddenly suffered from severe headaches. After an optometrist’s appointment to find the cause was cut short, he was handed a sealed envelope and told to go directly to hospital. What followed on June 21, 2014 was emergency brain surgery and a massive hemorrhage that shattered the life he knew. He spent weeks in a coma and months in a rehab hospital. What he learned along the way might surprise you: there is nothing like a brain injury to refocus the mind.

Driven by a positive attitude, Dan MacQueen  battled to recover and return to a job he loved. He’s grateful for the doctors who saved him and the friends and family who supported him. Now he wants to pay it forward. The tools that helped Dan recover can be used by anyone facing adversity and challenges. He will reveal strategies to help your team be better than yesterday and achieve your goals, one step at a time. The dark humour he sprinkles through his talk will make them laugh. His message will leave them motivated.

Dan MacQueen has appeared on dozens of podcasts and has spoken to businesses, community organizations and to health care and government workers. He’s given speeches at Hootsuite, an international social media management company, to salespeople at Spendesk, a Fintech SaaS company based in London and to rehab patients at the NHS Wolfsen Hospital in London. His audiences were moved and uplifted by Dan’s story and ready to use his practical approaches to triumph over adversity.

Testimonials

If you are looking to motivate your team, I highly recommend contacting Dan. Through his powerful story and authentic vulnerability, Dan inspires people to embrace their own struggles and find the courage to overcome life’s many challenges, big and small. After Dan shared his story on our podcast, we were contacted by listeners, thanking us for having Dan on. His message of hope and perseverance had struck a nerve.

I could not recommend Daniel MacQueen highly enough for any revenue team. It’s funny how much we spend on coaching skillsets for Sales teams and disregard mindset and perspective. An average skill set with a great mindset will get you twice the results of a great skillset with a poor mindset. Dan was able to both share perspective as well as giving our team tips to hold a positive mindset when times get tough! As you’re designing your L&D and enablement strategies for next year – get in touch with Dan!!
