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).

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.
I read Daniel Priestley's book at just the right time for me. I'd heard about it and heard him speak 18months prior, but after an exceptionally challenging 2012 I needed to take stock and write my book - the one I'd been going to write and had started many times over the years. I knew that this was vital for me, personally and professionally. But your confidence takes a knock when you've failed in business and I needed affirmation. Become a Key Person of Influence did that. It didn't give me any blinding flashes of new insight - they are rare when you have lots of varied experience and blinding flashes rarely last! What it did is simplify and de mystify the process of channeling and effectively using your experience and insights. It affirmed the process I was going through and gave me practical guidance to simply the guff: to focus on what I was really passionate about and wanted to do. Deep down I knew I had something of unique value to contribute: synthesising my real life experience and research - about how we can equip our children and young people with the attitudes, thinking and behaviours to succeed - into something accessible for all. Daniel's book affirmed that I was doing the right thing to focus on writing my first book and I systematically followed the other KPI steps in terms of profile, website, social media etc. I am eternally grateful to Daniel for helping me simplify what can appear complex (and others make far too complex!) and writing and speaking in a style that was affirming - giving confidence rather than setting himself apart as the 'expert'. I would recommend this book to anyone who is thinking of setting out on a journey to pursue their passion, and use their experience, knowledge and ability to Become a Key Person of Influence.
I particularly like the view that we all have knowledge and experience that is valuable if we were to unpack it.
This serves as a great reference book and I routinely read it when I need to practice my pitching.
I have recommended this to my clients also.
I also recommend watching Daniel Priestlys interview on London Real, hearing the wisdom from him in person before hand made the reading experience for me a more powerful one!
Thanks Daniel Priestly you Rock!!!
I've read it twice, did a summary of it and take it from time to time to review some specific pages. Brilliant book.
