I am here to help you tell your story in a better way. It starts with assessing your existing communications and working from there.
The priority for me is always understanding the needs of the audience first, whether they are staff, stakeholders, regulators, clients, prospects or the wider community.
Only then you can take your organizational objectives, products or services and create content. If you do so without understanding the needs of the audiences, you will not build the relationship or trust.
Whether on radio or TV to millions of people, or live to 5,000 people or even 6, the size of the audience does not matter, it's the value that you bring to the presentation.
As an MC, presenter or panel moderator, I feel that it is important that people walk away having engaged with an interesting topic, presented in a professional and warm style.
From professional sports stars to CEOs and media personalities, part of my work has focused on preparing, coaching and supporting people in the public eye.
People have different roles and challenges as a result. They may be representing sponsors or a team, a corporation or simply themselves. Through best practice and roleplay I work on polishing techniques and building confidence.
Whether the channels are broadcast or digital, you must be in control of your story at all times. Beyond marketing and selling, storytelling is a critical part of what sets us apart from others. Understanding the needs of your audiences will reward you with stronger relationships. There is no substitute to doing the background work before you create a campaign.
Dan brings something special to a consultation or a project…Perspective. He looks at how we communicate from the audiences point of view. From seeing how we stand out from the competition to what we say to engage with people. Dan has an innate ability to balance our needs and those of the consumer.

I have never met anyone else like Dan. He has a real thirst for learning and a drive to take those lessons to provide a better service and product for his clients. He truly cares about what he works on and the people for whom he does it. He is a great problem solver. Always professional, but fun. Dan is great to work with.
- Peter Shindler, Editor / Producer
We have worked with Dan on many Outside Broadcasts and have always been amazed at his unflappability, especially when things don't go quit as planned, like weather and Satellite positions. Dan is a true professional and it is always a pleasure to work with him.

Dan – Your presentation to NSBA members brilliantly reminded us that despite (or perhaps because of) our 24/7 lifestyles, creating relationships through “telling your story” is increasingly a community and business-building imperative. Thank you for your inspiration!

Dan inspired and entertained us with wit, charm and a self-deprecating delivery of his story: from Bournemouth to North Battleford and beyond...

Dan Gold was extremely informative and engaging; he truly exemplified why social media through story telling is the path to entrepreneurial and corporate success.
