Dan played football in the Canadian Football League for 13 years, where he was coached by over 40 different professional coaches. All of these coaches were behavior change specialists, and helped Dan become an expert in the fundamentals of habit change.  Dan retired from the CFL in 2010, where he was a perennial all-star and a two time Grey Cup champion.

Dan has co-written The Truth About Success, Enduring Principles of Leadership, My Rules and Professional Coaching.

The parallels drawn between the corporate world and professional football have given Dan great insight into team building, leadership, and the importance of consistently protecting any team’s community from a loss of unified vision.  Dan’s message is inspirational and heartfelt… He speaks to the human heart’s capacity to overcome adversity and the essential mindset that is necessary to do so.  In the end any team can overcome the most difficult situations imaginable, but it is our ability to do so while protecting the well-being of our communities that separates the survivor from the champion. 
This inspirational keynote looks at ways to improve safety issues in the workplace environment by encouraging proper leadership skills and habit change. Dan explains how innovations in brain science challenge common assumptions about habit change.

According to Dan: "You're either leading by example or you're misleading by example." Dan Comiskey played football in the Canadian Football League for 12 years earning two Grey Cup rings. During this period, he had over 40 different coaches. The wisdom of these coaches and Dan’s ability to adapt taught him the fundamentals of habitual change. He is now an expert on habit change.

During his career Dan had to deal with the loss of his step-brother who passed in an industrial incident. He also helped his father in-law, who suffered a permanent brain injury in the workplace less than one year from retirement. Dan personally suffered multiple concussions, a torn tricep, a torn calf and a broken leg during his professional football career. Dan has a very personal perspective on the importance of safety rules, safety communication and the importance of attention to Safety in the Workplace.
