Danny Brassell has been the best presenter that we have ever had at our annual teacher training to date, and he far exceeded our expectations. Dr. Brassell is a captivating presenter who has the natural ability touch each and every audience member. His presentation was high energy, interactive, animated, engaging, and extremely motivating. Teachers could not stop raving about Dr. Brassell. In fact, many headed straight for their classrooms to begin setting up for the new school year. We all left so excited, looking forward to the start of school, and empowered to always be a positive influence in the lives of our students. Thank you so much!
