I personally learn a lot in my 2 day session, not only from a technical continuous auditing perspective but from the softer side as well. Group dynamics and encouraging group participation, interview techniques and most importantly always ending meetings and engagement before time 🙂

Just wanted to extend thanks for your presentation on Communication. I found that session to be among the top three sessions of the week, including the keynote speakers.

ISACA CACS Conference, May 2016 (New Orleans, LA)
Danny is a great speaker and the review of the audit process is critical because many times, we might think we are being valuable to our institution, but we have some areas that we may lack. The discussions with the audience were helpful because I got to hear similarities and differences among audit shops because everyone has certain ways that they conduct their processes. As still being fairly new to internal audit, this session really opened my eyes more to the audit process and the ways that we should carry ourselves among our colleagues in the institution.
ACUA Annual Conference (Miami) - 9/2016
I really enjoyed and greatly appreciate your delivery of the message you were trying to convey. You really made the meeting very enjoyable and upbeat. I hope to attend or see you again in the future. I was just reaching out to you and letting you know what I thought of the book that I purchased from you at the meeting.
I really enjoyed the aspect of the book that you kept it in a narrative and story style. I think it made it a very quick read and also puts the skills and practices that are referenced in the book as well as your training into real world scenarios. I also really like how each chapter was broken out after the chapter with the skills sets, messages, or concepts listed instead of like a textbook format throughout the chapter. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book. I have recommended the book to my supervisors that I think this book and your trainings would be very beneficial to all of my co-workers.
I really appreciated you letting me feel so included in your discussion and presentation. Being a younger professional who thinks they have a very strong soft skills set I still feel like I learned and took away a lot from your book and training. I hope to continuously improve my people centric skill set and hope to someday be in a position where I can make an impact as broad as you have.

I really enjoyed your presentations on both Behavior/Anger Management and Rood Cause analysis at the IIA Mid-Atlantic District Conference. Not only were the presentations informative and useful, but the material was presented in a matter where everyone was engaged creating a two-way conversation between you (the speaker) and the audience making the experience more memorable where the skills learned can be applied in real-life experiences. In addition, because of your presentations, I am definitely looking forward to reading your book “People-Centric Skills”Â and learning more about communication skills for internal auditors.

The webinar was excellent! It was a great refresher and also gave me insights on how I can better communicate specifics with staff on communication. I thoroughly agree with you on forms of communication. I find staff will resort to email whereas Iâ€™m much more likely to pick up the phone. Your concrete explanations will help me articulate better to staff the advantages.

ACUA Webinar - Summer 2015: People-Centric Skills
I want to start by commending you for the presentation yesterday. This was the fourth audit writing presentation that Iâ€™ve attended in the past few years and it was by far the one that I got the most out of. You challenged us to think outside the box and I hope our management team takes that challenge to heart. Using some of the points raised in the class yesterday I think we can improve how we approach, format, and review our audit reports â€¦ thereby making the reporting phase a lot less painful.

My group really enjoyed your presentation at the May Fort Worth IIA meeting. Â My team is comprised of staff at various points in their career, with diverse skill sets, and the material you presented served as a great litmus test of sorts in relation to our overall communication strategy.

I enjoyed the class. Your delivery was unique/informal from other presentations I have been a part of and it was effective in delivering the message. I got a lot out of the last two and a half days.
