Dan has spoken at hundreds of industry conferences, corporate events and sales kick-offs around the world.
During his tenure at LinkedIn he launched LinkedIn’s own social selling business and brought LinkedIn Sales Navigator to market. Creating LinkedIn’s profile optimization program for sales professionals ‘Resume to Reputation’ afforded him the opportunity to meet thousands of executives, sales and marketing leaders, and sellers around the world across all industries.
He has worked in London, Sydney and now New York with highly talented people at high growth, innovative companies including GE Capital, Complinet, Thomson Reuters, LinkedIn and Sprinklr.
His most recent experience as VP Sales at Sprinklr (now valued at $1.8bn) expanded his knowledge from social selling with LinkedIn to social selling and marketing with Twitter, Facebook and 21 other social channels globally, the broader web, video and mobile technologies.
He combines his unique experience with stories from his 20 years of enterprise selling to engage his audiences, inspire mind-shift and secure behavioral change.
English by birth, Dan is now a US-citizen and lives with his wife and kids in Manhattan. He is a former effective rugby player, now a highly ineffective golfer.
At Empire we believe that traditional sales approaches have been disrupted by changing buyer behavior, the rise of social media and digital more broadly. As a global sales training organization, we teach companies how to leverage these channels to serve customers and drive revenue. Our training programs challenge conventional thinking, are easy to implement and show immediate results.

Launching the social selling business unit at LinkedIn, bringing LinkedIn Sales Navigator to market and creating LinkedIn’s profile optimization program for sales professionals ‘Resume to Reputation’ afforded me the opportunity to meet thousands of sales leaders and sellers around the world across all industries. It was a lot of heavy lifting but was blessed to be recognized by Onalytica Research as one of the leading ‘social selling influencers globally’.
