29 Jan IN REMEMBERANCE OF OUR FOUNDING FATHER DAN AGAN
On December 30, 2017, we lost our founding father Dan Agan, who finally succumbed to a six-year battle with cancer. For his partner and colleagues at Ninja, the loss is deeply profound, considering that Dan was not only one of our best friends, but THE BEST mentor we’ve ever had. While his passing was sudden, it was not unexpected. Dan has spent the past year planning for the future of Ninja Communications to continue to grow as a company to support strategic communications, specifically for science communication. While Dan had an accomplished career as a former PBS executive and marketing and communications consultant, he found his greatest meaning and purpose in training, coaching, and mentoring scientists to communicate the value of their work. Dan pioneered the gold standard of science communications training workshops with the National Science Foundation. He created a library of curricula that was taught to over 6000 scientists in 40 states over the past 8 years. Dan’s final wish was to build an online training platform that could provide communications coaching on demand, 365 days a year, 24/7. We launched Ninjacommunicator.com just two months before Dan’s passing. It is our mission to carry on Dan’s legacy through our workshops and Ninjacommunicator.com.
