Topics for Daniel Flynn
- Get out and stay out: Challenging business as usual for good
Designed to challenge leaders and teams to flip their thinking and inspire bold new paths forward, this is a keynote that will engage and deeply move you to question the way things have always been done to see ground-breaking results.
As his signature presentation, this talk has received global affirmation - The National President of Professional Speakers Australia said, “As a community of speakers, we are no strangers to talent stage delivery, but Daniel set a new bar. The standing ovation at the end of his session was the longest I've ever seen and seemed an almost inadequate response to the impact he had made.
- Purpose: It’s the fuel on the inside, not the paint on the outside
Organisations and leaders across the world have woken up to the reality that purpose changes everything. On paper, Thankyou is outmatched by all of its competitors in resources, experience, and funding - giving it no chance in the markets it operates in. And yet independent studies have shown that Thankyou out-innovates the category 3 to1. Thankyou’s disruptive marketing campaigns have become case studies for global marketers and created consumer loyalty that is the envy of any brand. What makes it different? They’ve authentically unlocked purpose in the organisation.
Daniel takes you behind the scenes to transparently share the ‘warts and all’ journey of starting a for-purpose organisation, losing that purpose while it rapidly scaled, and then finding it again as everything fell apart and how they came out the other side, better.
These are lessons for leaders that are invaluable, no matter where they are on their purpose journey, and the stories he shares will challenge and inspire you in your pursuit of it.
- The inside counts: The culture required for chasing mission-critical growth & scaling purpose in an upside-down world
The global pandemic has stopped us all in our tracks and turned the world completely on its head. Everyone has had to pivot in one way or another and become comfortable in the face of uncertainty. Now, for every organisation, leader and team that’s survived, growth is mission-critical and purpose can no longer just be spoken, but must be intentionally lived out.
Daniel authentically shares behind the curtain of Thankyou’s ‘2020’, a year where a critical business mistake combined with global supply chains falling apart, saw Thankyou at the edge of the financial cliff, only months away from when its global expansion was planned to begin. What could have ended Thankyou went on to become one of the most remarkable moments in their history and over the space of three months, they rebuilt supply chains from the ground up and ended the year delivering more profit in those three months than Thankyou’s entire 12-year journey, going on to launch its global expansion plan.
Daniel unpacks the culture required from leaders and teams looking to thrive in this upside down, inside-out world.
Testimonials for Daniel Flynn
Would give 6/5 if I could. Daniel was engaging, personable, inspirational - his talk was so well-paced and he really took us all on the journey with him. Delegate feedback has already been overwhelmingly positive. Missed opportunity that he didn't bring his books to purchase, as I think that would have been a sell-out. This is personal feedback but I have already switched my refillable deodorant brand over to Thankyou. Would absolutely recommend to anyone.

The Property Collective
I have not met a more generous or humble human being, and what a story! Daniel by far would be the best speaker we have ever engaged with.
Nillumbik Shire Council
Daniel Flynn ended our annual convention with a presentation we will never forget. As a community of speakers, we are no strangers to talent stage delivery, but Daniel set a new bar. The standing ovation at the end of his session was the longest I've ever seen and seemed an almost inadequate response to the impact he had made.
Professional Speakers Australia
Daniel Flynn was the hit of our show. He will make you laugh, cry and end up having the audience on their feet from a standing ovation.
Dan Flynn delivered the wow factor to the 300+ members and invited guests at The CEO Institute Summit recently. We were expecting an insight into Thankyou’s success, but we received that and much more! With a rating of 10 out of 10 by over 70%, those gathered were blown away by Dan's extremely entertaining and inspiring tale. As one member stated; "Dan made such an impact on me that I rushed home, gathered my family around the computer and trawled through the Thankyou.co website". The CEO Institute says; "Thank you, Dan!"
The CEO Institute
Daniel Flynn was engaging, relevant, open and honest and inspiring. I would not have thought that a speaker could have engaged with an audience via zoom in this manner. He understood how to cut through and how to take people on a journey. Utterly exceptional.
National Australia Bank Ltd.
Daniel Flynn was an incredible keynote speaker who delivered a 65 minute speech that was inspiring, relatable, interesting and dynamic every single minute. In the history of our staff conferences, standing ovations are very very rare and Daniel deserved all of the 850 people that stood for him. Our staff were engaged for the full session and could have listened to him all afternoon. We would recommend Daniel without hesitation to anyone considering a keynote speaker to inspire staff, encourage them to step out of their comfort zone and adapt and embrace change.
WOW - several weeks after Dan's story, the Travelzoo team are still talking about it. The lessons Dan Flynn shared can be immediately transferred to the business and referred to long after his time with us. Dan’s participation in our offsite meeting was a perfect way to wrap up 2 days of discussion to support our core messages.
Daniel Flynn's commitment to this social enterprise, and his selfless resolve to strive for success was an inspiration. At our recent Franchisee conference attended by approx. 1800 people, we invited Dan to tell us the story of Thankyou Water. We had several speakers on the day and Dan was the absolute stand out. His passion to provide safe drinking water is absolutely inspiring and he captivated the audience through the use of real-life stories and powerful images. The feedback from the audience was fantastic to say the least.
