Celia on Dan:
“Last year I attended the Good Life Project Immersion Program run by Jonathan Fields and Dan was a member of his faculty. We connected not only because we both love sports but also how we both are interested in helping people discover what lights them up and to live from that place. He has a rich background on so many topics but what I love about Dan is how he delivers his sessions. They are full of real life scenarios, current research and funny stories. I am not surprised his class at NYU, ‘The Science of Happiness’ is one of the most popular on campus! When you see Dan teach, you immediately sense his intelligence intellectually AND emotionally. He has worked with corporate executives, elite musicians and athletes on how to enhance their performance and use positive psychology to build and sustain success. Dan knows how to help people move toward excellence.”
