Daniel O’Neill (@guardianofthedisc) is a 2-time Freestyle Frisbee World Champion and World Urban Games Gold Medalist, former Cirque du Soleil performer, who happens to also be a subject-matter-expert in recruitment marketing.
Daniel was formally the VP of Business Development at Bayard, one of the oldest and most reputable ad agencies in the world. Prior to Bayard, he worked at Recruitics where he cut his teeth on programmatic job ads and was a top sales performer, bringing in clients in the rapid growing “gig economy” space.
Outside of programmatic job ads, Daniel is a world-class freestyle frisbee performer and has been a dancer with the world famous Pilobolus dance theater, is Tournament Director for the Freestyle Frisbee World Championships, and travels the world doing what he loves.
Daniel holds a Bachelor’s in economics, theater, and dance from Columbia University.
This episode is particularly valuable for 1) FOUNDERS who want to consider recruitment marketing for say, a marketplace with buyers & sellers, or 2) SALES leaders who are seeking creative business development strategies for generating new business through sales.
