All of us will encounter detours and adversities in our lives. It is how we respond that determines the quality and direction of our life going forward. Dale shares with his audiences what he has learned from his journey. One which has detoured him from his profession as a successful Senior Vice President of investments at a major financial firm, to a new path in life.He was left with deficits from his battle with a deadly form of bacterial meningitis, resulting in his ensuing disabilities.
Dale’s experience has taught him that in order to overcome unexpected detours and still live a productive, happy life, we must accomplish three things. These three principles have allowed him to continue living his life in a fulfilling way, even though it is far different from his prior one.

Designed for companies and individuals involved in the disability industry

He tells his story of recovery and perseverance, mentally, physically and financially, and the years long struggle he endured to rebuild his life. By sharing his journey he conveys the message of how having disability insurance allowed him to focus on returning to a normal life.
