I always enjoy getting kind words and testimonials for my work. This week, I received this one and wanted to share. Thanks, Steve!
“I receive a prodigious amount of legitimate e-mail and junk mail every day. I have set my e-mail filter so all junk mail, and possibly a few legitimate e-mails (unfortunately) are automatically deleted. But of all the legitimate e-mails I receive, and I received a number of weekly newsletters such as yours, I always read yours. You are an excellent storyteller who is able to relate to the story to our day-to-day activities.”

Last week, I was a gust panelist for a Small Business Association sponsored class for new consultants. It was a terrific opportunity to give back a little bit. The moderator, John Martinka, was very kind to give me the following testimonial…
I have had numerous occasions to hear Dan Weedin present, moderate a group or be on a panel. He gets his ideas across in a clear and concise manner without losing the audience. Dan has the ability to take a complicated (or poorly worded) question and simplify it so the audience gets the benefit they need. I would recommend Dan for public speaking engagements, panel discussions or facilitation. In a world of speakers who say too much and therefore cause their audience to drift away, Dan is a a refreshing tonic of pithy and valuable insights.

Thanks to one of my mentor clients Alan Jordan for his kind words…
“While all journeys may begin with the first step, the quality of that journey is often defined by whom you choose to travel with. Dan has been a part of my journey toward developing my professional consulting and business development skills. I can think of no better guide to navigate this journey than Dan Weedin.”

Last week, I spoke to the Kitsap Insurance Professionals on “The Language of the Sale.” The topic involves how to best herald your message to help your clients understand what best meets their needs. We must always have their best interests at heart, yet how we persuade and deliver our message is critical for success.
Thanks for the kind words, Julianne!
Full Disclosure Note: The catch phrase Julianne mentions wasn’t made up by me (I wish). My professional mentor Alan Weiss has drilled this in my head!
The Kitsap Insurance Professionals were fortunate to have Dan Weedin speak to our association recently.
Dan spoke on “the Language of the Sale”, He discussed how to “Not be so analytical” and how to use stories when discussing insurance with our clients. He also provided examples of ways to sound more confident when speaking to a client.
We all took some valuable information away from his speech and I know that I have already utilized some of his suggestions.
I liked his catch phrase “Logic makes people think, Emotion makes people act”
We at KIP are very applicative of the time that Dan was able to give us and we hope to have him come back some time soon.
President; Kitsap Insurance Professionals
Many thanks to Lindy Gardner from Admiral Insurance and Tara Sites from Liberty Mutual for their very kind testimonial for my recent work with them through the Greater Seattle Insurance Professionals. I worked with them at both the state and regional levels for their conferences. What a terrific organization it is! Below is their recommendation…
I’d love to have the chance to help your group or organization at its next conference, convention, or meeting. Please give me a call and let’s talk about it!
“We have worked with Dan on several occasions over the past five months. Our professional organization hired him in various capacities: as a guest speaker, a moderator and to lead a team building exercise. All three events went off without a hitch and were a huge success thanks to Dan!
Dan is very easy to work with and the feedback we received from those in attendance was very positive. He’s personable, easy to relate to and helped to keep our focus on point. His life experience has helped with his training for life balance topics, easing your way into new technology and hitting goals both personally and professionally.
We would recommend Dan in any capacity. He was prompt, professional and a pleasure to work with.”

As Alan Weiss has always said, “If you don’t toot your own horn, you don’t have any music.” I also believe that when others toot your horn, the music goes twice as far.
I was honored over the weekend to have been given a wonderful testimonial from professional speaker Frank Kenny…
“It is my pleasure to recommend Dan Weedin to you. I have found him to be a smart, effective, passionate worker on behalf of clients and community, a talented public speaker, knowledgeable business person, and dedicated family man. He was a featured speaker at our Bigfoot social media conference, playing a very significant role in the conferences’ formation. If you need speaking, coaching or consulting services, give Dan a call.”
Thank you, Frank! I appreciate your kind words.
With those kind words being said, please note that there are a couple of opportunities around the corner where you can gain professional growth:
September 3 – Free Teleconference on Being an Influential Leader – 11:00 am Pacific
September 28th – Two live workshops at the Clearwater Casino Hotel – Panic to Power and Got Confidence?

It’s always valuable to find out what your audience takes away from your presentation. Libby Wagner and I presented a program at the Seattle Chamber of Commerce titled, “Recession to Recovery: Entrepreneurial Strategies for Business Acceleration.” Here are a few of the comments and testimonials from those who were there:
“Shook me into realization I’ve gotten stale.”
“What was discussed is immediately usable and implementable.”
“There are many resources for help; this put some much needed creative wind in my sails.”
“Great information on building your network and prospect list and time management.”
“It affirmed some of the paradigm shifts I’ve been undergoing. Reinforced and encouraged me that I’m on the right track.”
“Good fresh ideas, especially for personal development.”
“Helped clarify and better understand some key strategies for growing business.”
“It helped identify gaps in my current operations that are keeping me from expanding.”
On behalf of Libby, we would like to thank all the participants and of course the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce. The chamber is an excellent way to get the professional development you need, as witnessed by these folks. If you’re not a member yet and you’re in the Greater Seattle area, why not?
