We all want to be seen, heard and valued.

Sometimes barriers stand in our way – the voice in our head, our fear of change, others’ judgements, a lack of connections, limited skills and experience. Our growth is rooted in and accelerated by the company we keep (Co), the experiences and experiments we engage in (Lab), and how we lead our lives (L). At CoLabL, we expand your network, develop your talent and accelerate your growth.

  • Dan has easily been one of the best external partners I've worked with in my career. As someone who is incredibly passionate about mentoring and aligning talent to opportunity, he helped my LinkedIn team establish a country wide mentorship program to connect our top tier talent with top tier mentors. I cannot thank Dan enough for his diligence to keep my timelines honest, his thought leadership in the space, and his incredible energy put forward in creating an amazing program for the team. I'm lucky to have had Dan as a partner and am happy to vouch for him in the future.

  • We hired Daniel to facilitate several staff brand training sessions. What I noticed immediately was that Daniel worked VERY closely with us to really align and customize the sessions to our team's needs—not a "one-size-fits-all" approach—which I felt was highly effective and made efficient use of our time. He embraces and integrates feedback to continually evolve programs, and brings a great deal of energy and expertise to each session. Daniel has helped our team gain greater confidence in messaging, storytelling, and networking. With Daniel's help, they are truly developing the skills needed to serve as effective brand ambassadors—and now we are expanding these training opportunities to other key stakeholder communities like our Board and Affinity Group leaders. If you are looking for a relationship-driven, results-oriented, and interactive training facilitator, I highly recommend Daniel.

  • Dan's expertise, project management skills, and passion for what he does is unrivaled. As a longstanding partner and consultant, supporting and guiding Starbucks mentoring initiatives, we have benefited greatly from his direction and leadership. Dan has effectively built capacity within our company across multiple business units and facilitated collaboration among multiple organizations (both corporate and community based).
