About the Author

Daniel founded his first company in 2002 in Australia at the age of 21. Within 13 months the company was turning over approximately AU$1M. He has since launched over 9 businesses and products into new markets with most ventures achieving 6 figure sales in the first 3 months. In 2006, Daniel moved from Australia to launch an office in London. Arriving with only a suitcase and a credit card, Daniel quickly set about building his connections in London. In the first 12 months of operation in the UK, Triumphant Events achieved more than GBP1M in sales and Daniel was considered as one of the Key People of Influence in his industry. Daniel is in constant demand around the world and speaks to audiences throughout Asia, Australia, Europe and the United States. He speaks from his personal experience of spending large sums of his own money on marketing and advertising, building sales teams, recruiting and retaining high performing teams. Daniel has been able to build successful companies that continue to run even when he has been overseas for 6 months at a time. Daniel is passionate about social entrepreneurship and is a business advisor and fund-raiser to several charities / not for profit organisations (or not for dividend as Daniel would say).

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's the Meat? 18 July 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The author is no doubt a gifted entrepreneur, and this book is worth a read. However, it lacks substance and contains few original ideas. For instance, we are told to write a book, develop a product, and do joint ventures. Nothing new there then! There is also insufficient information on how to implement the ideas presented.

The number of 5-star reviews is puzzling, to say the least.

Contrast the more substantial treatment of the subject of becoming a thought leader, by Ken Lizotte in "The Expert's Edge: Become the Go-To Authority People Turn to Every Time". For a masterpiece on the subject of influence, you cannot get better than Robert Cialdini's "Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion". See also the superb How to Build Your Reputation: The Secrets of Becoming the Go to Professional in a Crowded Marketplace by Rob Brown.

Update 30 July 2012 - I have just finished reading Jason Selk's book 'Executive Toughness: The Mental-Training Program to Increase Your Leadership Performance'. This provides the best and most effective system for setting and achieving goals I have ever read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding- if implemented 15 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was recommended by one of the KPI in my profession and it did not disappoint. Having read it quickly once, am now implementing some new ideas, having found out that some of the "stuff" I'm already doing is correct. An excellent plan if you want to be the best in your niche.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Abraham Lincoln is famously quoted as saying "Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe." [And it's also important to note that Lincoln was prodigiously productive once he started swinging an axe, for starters.]

In business, positioning yourself powerfully and following through with highly productive action from that position is where the smart money is. Daniel Priestley's Key Person of Influence is a powerful blueprint for current and aspiring entrepreneurs who want to stand out ethically, attract far more business from clients who value them most highly, and make their highest contribution to society at large.

Do these principles work?

Yes, exceptionally well, as evidenced by the scores of successful entrepreneurs worldwide who follow this path. And what's more, the Key Person of Influence model is highly leveraged and far more efficient than the usual hamster wheel business-chasing approach that normal businesses get trapped in.

Bringing this closer to home, I've had the pleasure of knowing Daniel Priestley for many years now, as a client, business associate and friend, and he stands out consistently as one of the most accomplished, ethical and noteworthy entrepreneurs I've seen anywhere in the world. Not only is Dan exceptional at quickly bringing huge value to market, he's also an inspiring social entrepreneur who balances his considerable business success with sustained, highly effective social contribution.

I highly recommend Key Person of Influence as a masterclass in how to create a highly successful, ethical business that works for the good of all concerned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Discover your niche 7 Mar 2014
This book helped me get very clear on exactly what my niche is. Everything has changed for me since then. Business becomes easier when you are passionate and absolutely loving what you do every day. And that's all before you learn how to become the KPI in your field!

Love it, thanks Daniel!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideas that will stay and grow with you. 7 Mar 2014
I first met Daniel when I was in college, (a somewhat absurd 7 or something years ago). The ideas and the mentality that were instilled in me from that age have defined me and my approach to business today.

Daniel can influence people a disproportionate large amount with the smallest input. Many of the ideas in this book I have lived with for many years now, and are echoed by the higher echelons of the business world. I have no doubt that this book can help everyone, and anyone. All I would add to this is that to truly have faith in the book, you must see Daniel in person if you can. This will allow you first hand to see the expertise and experience that this book is grounded in, and will make it a much easier read, knowing the philosophy from which it is borne.
