Dan Thurmon is the author of two books, a renowned speaker, and a recognized expert in delivering peak performances – on stage and in the workplace. As president of Motivation Works, Inc., he has worked with hundreds of clients and delivered thousands of presentations worldwide. Dan helps organizations and individuals implement actions plans and move confidently through transitions.

Mr. Thurmon began his performance career at eleven years old, crafting a one-man-show incorporating comedy, juggling and acrobatics. This enabled him to, at a very early age, develop a strong work ethic and learn fundamental lessons about performance excellence. Dan graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Marketing and Management. He has also extensively studied Personal Development and developed a unique methodology he teaches to audiences and clients.

A recent inductee to the prestigious “Speakers Hall of Fame,” Dan Thurmon delivers experiences that go beyond motivation, teaching concepts and skills in a highly engaging and entertaining manner. He incorporates his lifelong performance skills to create high impact events. His programs have educated and uplifted Fortune 500 companies, young audiences, and even the troops on the front lines of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Mr. Thurmon’s  philosophy can be summarized by the title of his book, Off Balance On Purpose. He believes that we will never achieve “perfect balance” and should, instead, learn to embrace uncertainty and initiate positive changes that lead to growth. Also, we should go beyond the pursuit of “success” and enhance our life experiences and professional endeavors with purposeful, positive contributions. Mr. Thurmon currently lives in the Atlanta area with his wife and their children.  When he’s not on stage or traveling across the country delivering his programs, Dan spends lots of time with his family at their Atlanta home or at Motivation Point, their vacation property in Franklin, NC.

Dan also enjoys golf, reading, writing and playing music.  He currently plays drums for the contemporary praise band, The Forgiven, at Tucker United Methodist Church. One of the most significant and rewarding performance opportunities of his career came in March of 2005, when Dan traveled to Iraq, Afghanistan and four other Middle East countries to bring entertainment and encouragement to US Armed Forces.
