Dan is super inspiring for our students – his passion and knowledge really motivates them for a career in the creative industry!
Daniel was invited to London College of Fashion to be a guest speaker at a recent event in partnership with the organisation Success Talks. Daniel provided an inspirational and thought-provoking talk for our students on finding out what's important to them and how to act on it. Our students are often at a pivotal point in their lives; they know where their passions and talents lie but do not necessarily know the next steps to take and Daniel offered some practical advice on how to turn ambition into reality. Daniel was very relatable for our students as he drew on his own experiences and talked honestly and openly about the personal challenges he has faced and how he has used them to drive himself towards reaching his full potential. Post event feedback from our students was very positive and they felt very motivated by his advice and support. One student commented “all the speakers had something great to say but Daniel stood out to me the most because of the confidence, energy and drive he had, trying to get someone similar for future talks.” I would not hesitate to recommend Daniel as a speaker and we wish him lots of luck with his future projects.
Dan's advice on networking and breaking into the creative industries was well received by our students. His friendly approach is non-corporate and perfect for building meaningful and long-term professional relationships.
Dan did a couple of sessions in partnership with us and both were great. Really engaging with a lot of useful info. We've ended up using a couple of the people who attended the sessions to work on our output.
Talk2Dan is the perfect link between brands in the media space and proactive, enthusiastic new talent for the industry. Dan's platform is so incredibly effective.
We have worked with Talk2Dan when advertising our entry level internships. We have previously held a great session with the young people within the network to talk about the music industry, the sort of roles that we have on offer here at Sony and how best to apply themselves. It was great to work with Dan and understand the intricate support he offers to his network and it's also great to see the Talk2Dan team growing!
Dan's advice has been instrumental to the growth of our Creatives.
Dan (Talk 2 Dan) is a pleasure to work with and has conducted amazing workshops with us that prepare our learners to be work ready; using a variety of role plays, interview techniques, scenario planning and much more. The feedback from learners was hugely positive - Dan helped them to add 'character' to their profile, identified skill sets, whilst helping learners to see value in themselves and their expanding abilities.
Working with Dan to reach new audiences for a household brand like ITV was a brilliant experience. Using his networks and knowledge of the early careers space to communicate via popular, safe platforms helped us massively improve the diversity of our applicants.
Dan has a unique way of connecting with young adults and we've worked with him on a few recruitment drives to extend our visibility across a wider candidate pool. We've really valued his input and highly recommend his services.
Talk2Dan's session at PinkNews Futures was one of the most engaging and interactive talks of the day. Students left feeling inspired and with the tools they needed to network successfully.
It's always a pleasure to work with Talk2Dan! He and his team have an amazing personal connection with all the talented creatives in their network which makes the working process smooth and effortless. Dan always makes sure both sides know exactly what their commitments are and are on the same page.
