A business trainer and consultant for 19 years, Dale Perryman has consulted and trained for some of the largest corporations in the world. As a consultant for Johnson & Johnson, Dale brought leadership training into the company just named number one (with IBM) in U.S. leadership development (Chief Executive Magazine’s Annual Top 20 Companies for Leaders, October 2003).
At age 20, Dale started teaching college classes. After receiving a Master’s degree from Oklahoma State University and teaching for 2 years at OSU, he moved to the Dallas area and worked as a full-time trainer for LTV Missiles and Electronics Group and ARCO Oil and Gas Company. While there he conducted 183 days of training in fourteen cities, eight states, and one foreign country in a single year. In early 1993, possibly a bit tired, Dale founded the Center for Organizational Learning. Over the years Dale has spoken to many diverse audiences, from bikers to pastors…to prison inmates to leadership camps…to corporate executives.
Among the many interesting life experiences Dale applies in his training is the remarkable story of what happened on his 28th birthday. In 1991, Dale was stranded on a New Mexico ski mountain in sub-freezing weather with no food or shelter, and spent 3 days and 2 nights completely alone, fighting to stay alive. The miraculous story changed his life. And it’s had more than a little to do with his training. Dale’s Survival Story
