Daniel E. Kline

Daniel E. Kline is an internationally recognized speaking professional and member in good standing of the National Speakers Association. His popular presentations draw from his more than 30 years of experience as a public speaker, writer, creator-owner of two retail stores, and manager of a large, California-based division of the federal government. In 1997, Dan and his wife, writer Kay Marshall Strom, founded Kline, Strom International, Inc., a Santa Barbara-based speaking, training and consulting firm. KSII, national in scope, specializes in workplace communication issues such as writing, speaking, people-managing, team-building, and leadership.

Dan's relaxed, easy style and sense of humor win audiences over to difficult subjects such as resolving anger, criticism, and conflict; sexual harassment; and dealing with negative people in negative situations, as well as to how-to's such as grappling with the confusing rules of grammar, syntax, and punctuation; and lighter but nonetheless valuable seminars like "Can You Get Everything Done-and Still Have a Life?"

His audiences frequently comment on his powerful stage presence, commitment to values and principles, and their surprise at how these topics can be informative, educational and entertaining all at the same time! Dan has received overwhelmingly outstanding evaluations from the more than 100,000 people he has addressed in the United States, Canada, Brazil, Colombia, Great Britain, Spain, Russia, the Netherlands, Poland, Kuwait, Australia, Malaysia, China, and Japan.


Mastering Communication in the Work Place

Easygoing, articulate, knowledgeable, warmhearted, witty, and wise. Dan Kline is a skilled and entertaining speaker who knows how to connect with his audience.
Time and again Dan's seminar and training course attendees are astonished at how much they learn despite having had such an enjoyable time. It seems almost like cheating.
That, of course, is what mastering communication in the workplace is all about--not cheating, but how to get past the stress and find the joy in successful and productive relationships with fellow workers, regardless of their positions within the company or organization.

Dan tackles the complexities of workplace communication in a variety of subjects, each of which can be customized--compressed into one or two hours, or expanded to address your company's or organization's particular needs. Full day or multiple day seminars may be created from a selection of these and other themes. Complete keynote-to-seminar details and additional topics are available from Dan.
