From Dan Peña – Executive Coach and Mentor to the High Performer.

Dear Friend and Subscriber,


I am pleased to announce one of our own QLA devotees and my mentee was featured on 17th March by Forbes. I couldn’t be more proud! As I have written before, Michael Pierce has been through a lot! Please take the time to read the article. To many of you, it will sound very familiar!


I would like to take this opportunity to tell you I will give another 3 day 4 night castle experience in 15 – 18 August. I am sure it will be fully subscribed. This seminar will combine QLA Methodology, Raising Capital and Deal Making and Acquisitions as the April and June seminars. It will also be at the reduced price of April and June. In addition I have taken some of the suggestions you sent me, including new blocks on leadership, selling your dream, overcoming obstacles and the conventional wisdom that will plague you.

In addition Michael Pierce will be the invited QLA devotee. As I told the Reuters journalist, many know QLA Methodology, but few are as totally committed and articulate it as well, as Michael. He should be an inspiration and extra bonus to the castle experience. He will say in his own words how he had to continue to sell and resell his dream and overcome many obstacles time after time! I know he will share how he felt, because I never gave up on him, though his success was a long time coming. As I have said countless times, I never give up on anyone as long as they don’t give up on themselves!

For more information on the August seminar contact Michelle at The outline of the seminar is exactly what is on my site for April / June slightly condensed, but also includes the above new blocks. As always each attendees deal / dream will be worked into the programme, by submitting detailed questionnaires before the event. As before we will try and accommodate extended stays where possible. There will still be time for those of you that play golf, etc, since it is daylight from 4am till 11pm and the seminar hours are 9am till 6pm, or until all questions are answered.

I look forward to seeing you in August, or before!

To Your Quantum Leap,


P.S. To answer whether I will be giving seminars in the USA or anywhere else in Europe – NONE ARE PLANNED.
