Dan Carter

As a professional speaker and leadership expert, Dan has motivated many people to achieve their full potential. As a life-long learner, he has completed leadership training with the Zappos’ Team in Las Vegas and the Disney Institute in Florida.  Dan is active in community development initiatives and believes in investing unconditionally in others.

His deep commitment to making a difference to those in need has led to the establishment of a number of projects including; the Hope Centre for Learning at Carea Community Health Centre and the annual Day of Hope and Leadership (which has become a signature event for local community leaders).

The author of “It’s the Right Time Now” chronicling his own life story and his rise to success is now in its third print edition.

Dan’s leadership and contributions have been widely recognized within the broader community and he has received a number of honours and awards for his work including: the CAMH Courage to Come Back Award, the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medallion and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medallion. Dan was also conferred in 2011 with an honorary Doctor of Laws from the University Of Ontario Institute Of Technology.

In 2016, Dan was elected as a Regional and City Councillor (Oshawa). Like everything Dan does, he has taken this role to heart and feels very blessed that he has the opportunity to help people in his community every day.
