What People Are Saying
Its my pleasure to write this recommendation for Dan. He is a wonderful person and a tremendous coach. He has a unique approach where he pushes you to dig deep inside yourself and understand your unique skill-set and value proposition that you can bring to an organization to have a meaningful impact. His knowledge and expertise is unmatched and in a normal conversation itself he will share so many tips and tricks that are hard to find in any book or website. I found his guidance extremely helpful in building upon my strengths, identifying areas that need improvement and how to network effectively. He is very thorough, positive and always available to help. I am fortunate to work with him and look forward to many more years of partnership ahead.
In addition to being an outstanding talent acquisition partner, Dan also excels at career coaching and resume building. He provides strategic insights into how to get your resume and online profiles to stand out by highlighting key outcomes in an objective manner. I strongly recommend partnering with fairwindslogiX for either your corporate recruitment needs or your own professional development (or both)!

It has been a genuine pleasure to work with Dan! He provides support and guidance, and his unique approach has helped me gain a new perspective on the job search and on network development. He is great to talk to, always open, positive and very friendly! Recently he started organizing the Meet Ups, which I found to be valuable moments to learn from him, from others and to exchange experiences. I truly appreciate what Dan does and highly recommend working with him!
So much of the job search journey was new to me - both from a technological standpoint (LinkedIn function, etc), and in terms of effective communication throughout the process. Dan put me together, and continues to support me along each step of the way. The whole thing is a lot less daunting with Dan in my corner. I highly recommend his services!
Dan and I were introduced recently and we developed a level of trust and professional bond very quickly. His views and inputs are invaluable. We did a podcast together on one of my articles and it was great fun. Dan is insightful, engaging and full of experience. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone who is considering coaching and recruiting. Thanks Dan
Dan was instrumental in sharing over a decade of personal and professional branding advice and expertise to elevate my profile and visibility. His process allows you to discover you values, talents and position yourself for prime and highly qualified exposure to the right companies. I highly recommend Dan and his group for anyone looking for career advancement and refining your branding pitch.

What are coaching sessions like?
There are a couple of ways you can make the most out of a coaching session
- Identify your goals and areas to focus on with your coach
- Keep a journal so you can track your progress
- Be open to exploration and change
- Be prepared to be challenged
- Expect change
The goal of each session is entirely dependent upon what you want to achieve
Typically consists of a series of one-on-one sessions that usually last 45 to 60 minutes each, once a week. Sometimes we meet every two weeks or even just once a month – depending on your needs.
Absolutely! The purpose of a consultation is so we can determine together if coaching can provide value to you. It is important to have a trusting relationship and good chemistry for success.
- Come with an open mind to position yourself for success
- Set appropriate expectations
- Open up and be honest with yourself
- Focus on your goals
- Make it a true partnership
- Set the right atmosphere
