"The longer I find myself in ministry, the more deeply I look for people like Philemon who knew how to "refresh the hearts of the Lord's servants." For me, that best describes Dan Gaynor. Time with Dan encourages me, blesses me, equips me and reminds me why I do what I do and why it matters so very much. I always leave with a refreshed heart and practical skills for whatever challenge ministry brings my way. His life experiences, his defining faith and his intuitive knowledge of leadership always inspires and equips me to serve with integrity of heart and with skilled hands."
Ian Trigg, Lead Pastor, Foothills Alliance Church
"When I was Chief Superintendent at the Calgary Catholic School District, Dan came in several times to work with staff and our Board. He consistently was exceptional when it came to engaging our various teams and outstanding at inspiring individuals and teams to re-imagine what was important; what was possible. Grounded in faith, delivering a message that anyone could relate to, down to earth, humble, passionate, exceptional presenter are just a few of the words or phrases that would describe how people in our groups described Dan and his work."
Dr. Lucy Miller, President and CEO, United Way Calgary
"Dan Gaynor's presentation of 7 Powerful Choices was a dynamic and engaging time for our leadership team at Highland Mennonite Brethren Church. As leaders, seasoned and new, it is easy to focus on the "to do" list and lose sight of how to be great leaders. Dan's interactive presentation was a great reminder that the people we lead are counting on us to make the right choices. Rooted in biblical teaching, I highly recommend Dan at your next leader or team retreat."
Peter von Kampen, Leadership Team Chair, Highland Mennonite Brethren Church
"I've always been grateful for Dan Gaynor's heart for leadership. We had the pleasure of having Dan speak to our small group leaders at First Alliance Church. Dan spoke on the "Essentials of Leadership" and nailed it. He is an excellent communicator who clearly and effectively passed on key insights from Scripture and his background in marketplace leadership. The feedback we received from our leaders was a 10/10. I would highly recommend him to you."
Grant Sylvester, Connect Pastor, First Alliance Church
"I met Dan when he was presenting a Christian leadership workshop at Ambrose University. I was moved by the way he simply and effectively communicated how we can be good Christian Leaders at work by applying principles from the Bible. I thought he would make a great guest speaker at our Richmond Hill Baptist Church men's retreat. There, Dan provided excellent engagement, dialogue, mentorship and a message that resonated with the group. I recommend Dan as an experienced Christian Leader who has the ability to help others succeed in the marketplace."
"Dan's style is informal and personable, his material is well organized and enlightening. As a pastor, I've observed the benefit of his practical insights for our congregation. Those who participate in his workshop or listen to his Sunday message appreciate hearing Dan's business experience combined with biblical principles. When we have opened the seminars to the community at large, people have been very positive about their high value. Dan encourages them to perform better, while inviting them to consider the spiritual values behind good leadership."
