Speaking Sessions


Dan invented the multi-day charitable event industry. He created the Breast Cancer 3-Day walks and the multi-day AIDS Rides, which raised in excess of half a billion dollars in nine years and were the subject of one of the first Harvard Business School case studies on social enterprise. The model and methods he created are now employed by dozens of charities and have raised in excess of $1.5 billion more for important causes from pediatric leukemia to AIDS to suicide prevention and many others. You can view detailed financial results of the events, see photos, videos and more on the Pallotta TeamWorks website. Dan was one of the founding partners for TED’s phenomenally successful Audacious Project, which curates some of the most promising and daring social change projects in the world, and has raised close to a billion dollars for them.
