DanDan Dennehy
Dan collaborates on our project and consulting work in two key areas:

Program Development and Case Study Writing. Dan develops experiential learning programs tailor made to each client — taking direct input from our team of experts and from the results provided by client-based planning and needs assessment. He enjoys writing client-specific interactive case studies that capture day-to-day reality from a participant’s view to engage them in lively discussion and meaningful evaluation of the complex challenges they face. Drawing from his 20+ years experience in adult learning program development, Dan injects our work with real issues and realistic drama. As a result, we produce work that “feels authentic” to program participants, allowing them to grasp the full import of the programs we deliver and enabling them to take action to improve.

Talent and Performance Measurement. Dan also designs and evaluates client pre-work survey instruments which are used in our planning process to capture “before” needs and attitudes. This allows our team to design an appropriate program to meet exact needs within the population and to compare results “after” delivery. These metrics enable us to measure program success over time, ensuring clients can quantify the benefits in their program investment, and identify hot-spots where additional work may be called for. We pay special attention to employee engagement and talent management when we design our measurement tools.

Dan serves as visiting faculty at the University of Pittsburgh’s Katz Graduate Business School in the Marketing Department, where he facilitates adult learning in Strategic Marketing Management, Consumer Behavior, Sales Management, Brand Management, Marketing Services, and International Business Development. Dan also facilitates Masters Leadership classes as adjunct faculty at Duquesne University’s School of Leadership and Professional Advancement (SLPA). He works with students face to face in Pittsburgh and online throughout the world.

Dan is fluent in English and Spanish.
