About the speaker
Danny began his diverse career as an architect. He studied at both the Tulane University in New Orleans, and the University of Nottingham. After working for the largest firm in Louisiana for three years he joined the US Peace Corps to serve as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines for four years.
He returned to the US to run a small business in Dallas, before deciding to go to Yale University for an MBA.
He joined the US State Department after graduation and served in ten different countries over the next 30 years. Learning and working on four continents in four different languages, he faced multiple challenges and crises, and his varied experiences have given him a broad and unique perspective on the challenges of managing a work force consisting of people from diverse cultures with different expectations and perspectives.
Officially retired from the State Department, he still gets requests to return to work in U.S. embassies overseas for short-term contracts.
He is also very enthusiastic about his position as an Adjunct Professor at Kingston University, and is now an active member in a squad at the Kingston Rowing Club, participating in races and regattas around the country.
Booking is essential to attend this event.
