Hi, I am Dan Blackburn and I’m a dad, coach, author, and founder of the Pillars of Greatness, a program to help you unlock your greatness within you. For the last 17 years, Dan has helped his clients turn their fears, frustrations and setbacks into powerful success stories.

As a young man, I felt virtually invincible when envisioning my success. I worked hard and focused intently on my dreams. As I grew older and ventured into the “real world”, I began to lose my drive and allowed fear to stop me in my tracks. I found myself failing over and over again until one day I hit rock bottom: I was jobless, living in a room I rented from a friend with no savings or business experience: struggling in my personal relationships and finding NO support from my family: and too afraid to ask anyone for help. I realized then that if I was ever going to succeed, I needed more than just a dream and the willingness to work hard. I needed a plan and the commitment to execute regardless of challenges and fears.  The realization transformed me from a dreamer into a DOER and was the genesis for what would eventually become my life mantra: Dream. Plan. Execute.

 Today, I have trained thousands, including champions like PK Subban of the Montreal canadiens: David Bolland of the Toronto Maple Leafs (formerly Chicago Blackhawks) and Tyler Sequin of the Dallas Stars.

Building on my own experience, as well as training champions like PK, David and Tyler, I have developed the Pillars of Greatness curriculum, a step-by-step guide on how to Dream, Plan and Execute the life you want. Offered as a keynote series for schools, associations, corporations and clubs the curriculum teaches 3 life-transforming principles that will help you form a plan to shatter the fears and setbacks that have stopped you from creating the life you want. Trust me, I have seen it all, and I know that regardless of circumstances, environment or limitations, you can achieve.

The Pillars of Greatness shows you how!
