Habitat for Humanity, Canada

 - May 5th, 2016 - Dan delivered his "Power of Purpose" Talk


"I wanted to thank you again for your profound and captivating presentation... The evidence of a profound message is that people talk about it for days and even start quoting it when they get a chance. Both happened in abundance! Thank you Dan for your ongoing support of Habitat Canada. You've been so kind to make yourself available to us over the past few years." - Mark Rodgers, President & CEO, Habitat for Humanity Canada

"Thank you for the inspiration to challenge mediocrity." - Pat Mckenna, via Twitter

"A special thank you to @danpallotta for the inspiring talk to #team habitat." - @ habitatcanada via Twitter

"Contemplating the existential nature of a banana with @danpallotta" - Heather Rivet, via Twitter



Sometimes it's tough to get a Canadian audience to appreciate my extremely intelligent humor. Not this crowd! Habitat for Humanity Canada gathered its top leaders together for a four-day conference  - yes four days (!) - entitled, "One Habitat," to completely re-envision their future. We had a lot of laughs and I think we started some serious dreaming. In 2015 alone, Habitat canada built homes for 228 families. 22% of the children in the families with Habitat homes go on to attain a bachelor degree or more vs. 8% of a control group. And there's a 60% reduction in food-bank usage among partner families. Thanks to everyone at Habitat Canada, and especially Mark Rodgers and Deanna, for a very special morning. I am humbled by the incredible things you achieve every day, and I know you've only begun.
