  • “Dana’s keynote address was not only inspiring, but highly entertaining. Dana is an absolute light, whose humility and vulnerability denotes her courage and her true dynamism. She has woven her story and her Olympic feats into an impactful narrative of authentic leadership, the power of vulnerability, and of the courage it takes to truly look at oneself in the mirror and see the real superwoman behind the mask.”

    Daniella Kahane
    Executive Director, WIN Summit
  • "Dana was the keynote speaker to close our 2021 virtual wellness event. She is as professional in the business world as she was during her elite swimmer career. Dana connected to the virtual audience with her warmth and authenticity. She shared moments of vulnerability along her sweet journey of self-discovery. She inspired us to become better through a new approach to self-development that empowers personal growth and long-lasting success. Her story was incredible. More people should get to hear her inspirational message. I'm glad we did. "

  • "I have been an avid fan of Dana Vollmer for over two decades. Her story is inspiring in and of itself; but the way that she discusses her emotions and feelings around competition, expectations and disappointment really allow her to connect with all of us on a deep level. My team was grateful for her candor and her willingness to be vulnerable in sharing very personal experiences. Dana's presentation was interactive, unpretentious and raw. If you have an opportunity to hear her message, I highly recommend it! It will change the way that you engage with others in a positive way."

  • “Dana Vollmer is a highly decorated Olympian and a people leader. The same level of commitment she dedicated to her craft in the pool is the same level of commitment she brings to every audience. She is a difference maker and it was an absolute gift to be in her presence as she wowed, inspired and equipped the entire audience to want to do more, be more and see the path more clearly.“

    Orlando Bowen

  • “Dana was the keynote speaker to open our 2020 virtual conference. She was wonderful to work with from beginning to end! She worked closely with us to adjust the program to meet the audience’s needs and was very helpful when we had to move from in-person to virtual. She spent the time to ensure her session was flawless from a technical and content standpoint. Her presentation was engaging and dynamic. She connected with the audience, even virtually, and told her story in a way that both motivated and excited attendees to rise to the challenge. We would highly recommend her as a motivational speaker! She was awesome!”

  • "When Dana speaks, her words merge with who she is to create a masterpiece of transformational medicine that is so needed in these times. Her words and her speaking have the gift, the gift that all great teachers and leaders embody, to transform people with the power of her presence, her principles, and her passion. She is a penultimate athlete. She is a mother and a wife. Her power is all these things, but what makes Dana such a rich contribution to humanity is her immense heart paired with an impeccable speaking craft."

  • “Dana was fantastic. Her message of overcoming her fears and using what many view as a weakness as her guiding strength for her own success not only resonated with the adults in the room, but also the girls.”

    Katherine Curtis

  • “Few successful people have a straight line to the top. I remember seeing Dana on TV winning medals in the Olympics, but I never knew that her journey to the podium required incredible resilience, self-awareness and determination. As the first swimmer to win a gold medal after having a baby, she’s an example and inspiration to all of us about finding the inner strength to be better and better. I’m so glad we could hear Dana’s story!”

She brings each audience through highs and lows of her extraordinary athletic career and masterfully links her learnings there to your life now. Dana delivers a courageous and heartfelt look at our shared humanity that will connect you to this Olympic hero and inspire you to do better at your own game - whatever that might be."
