About Our Speaker
Dan Markin is creating breakthrough results for individuals and organizations.

His innovative and practical motivational techniques and strategies, coined “Introspective Leadership”, have consistently allowed clients to enjoy breakthrough results – often beyond what they ever imagined possible.

The cornerstone of Introspective Leadership is identifying and segregating the mental barriers that bind us to a vicious circle of self-sabotage, unfocused, and “small-thinking” behaviors.

Once isolated, specific and directed behavioral-change techniques are used to mitigate these mental road-blocks and establish a new, often unrecognizable capacity to make quick, smart, and powerful decision.

Dan has over twenty years of corporate executive experience. He has held senior level positions with profit-and-loss responsibility and has received numerous financial, leadership, and management awards. Dan’s formal education focused on Psychology and Communications.

The mission of the Saint Louis Woman’s Club is the promotion of literature, science and art, and the study thereof, as well as the general intellectual culture, in a cordial atmosphere with friends and family. The spaces at the Saint Louis Woman’s Club are versatile – the Dining Room can have a large or small dance floor, the Ballroom has one of the largest private dance floors in St. Louis and a beautiful stage. There are two grand pianos in the club. The Ballroom has marvelous acoustics for music, speakers, or performers.

The Kingdom House After School program provides a safe and academically-focused environment conducive to homework help and supplemental educational curriculum and activities. Health activities and nutritious meals are provided daily. The program serves approximately 50 children and operates from September through May. MPI St. Louis Area Chapter will be collecting donations for the program at the March meeting. Click here for a list of suggested donations.
