Self-proclaimed “Birkmaniac” (look for his handle of the same name on Twitter) Dan Perryman joined Birkman in 2017 as the leader of our Training division where he dedicates his time to ensure a high-impact certification and training program for private consultants and corporate professionals alike.
Prior to working at our headquarters, Dan had a highly successful career using The Birkman Method in one of the world’s most successful corporations, as well as his private consulting business, a long tenure in which he became one of Dr. Birkman’s close associates and professional colleagues.
Dan’s extensive experience as a trainer, executive coach, and business leader made a profound impact on his Birkman practice despite having experience with several other tools. When asked what draws him so close to Birkman, Dan states it’s all about results: “no other personality or behavior assessment tool comes anywhere near the dependable and actionable insight that Birkman provides to grow organizational success and develop professionals.”
Dan founded his private consultancy, Candid Leadership, in 2011 to help companies globally fulfill their talent management strategies. In the corporate space, he dedicated fourteen years of his career serving in high-impact roles in talent management, learning, and development for Walmart in Bentonville and Shenzen, China.
Earlier in his career, Dan gained significant experience running video production and television programming following his education in Broadcasting and Communications. In his free time, Dan can be found vacationing in his villa in Italy with his wife Donna, or learning new skills to feed his learning and intellectual curiosity.
