Greensboro, NC – October 11, 2016 – On October 19th Dale Carnegie Training® will commemorate its
104th anniversary by launching a new annual program: The Dale Carnegie Global Day of Giving. The
event will unite Dale Carnegie offices around the world as they deliver special training programs to local
schools, non-profits and other charitable agencies that provide services to young people.
For more than a century, Dale Carnegie has supported global communities by transforming the lives and
career potential of people through human relationship skill building. Dale Carnegie’s thriving franchise
network, spanning 90 countries, is committed to helping its local communities prosper.
The Global Day of Giving will focus on providing leadership and life skills to youth and the agency staff
workers who support young people. With over 100 Dale Carnegie offices worldwide participating –
including centers in Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Egypt, England, France, Hong Kong, India,
Japan, Kuwait, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Romania, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Vietnam
and many others – several thousand young people are expected to benefit from this event.
“Over the years, Dale Carnegie Franchisees have dedicated immense time and resources to enriching
their communities, continuing our founder’s legacy through deep and longstanding local relationships,”
says Joe Hart, CEO of Dale Carnegie Training. “We are thrilled to mobilize our unsurpassed global
network as a single unit on October 19th.”
“Dale Carnegie’s Global Day of Giving is a way for Dale Carnegie Training franchises stretching across the
world to give the training and skill sets that we teach to the communities where we live and work,” says
Emily Carter, President and Franchise Owner of Dale Carnegie Training of Central and Eastern NC. “We
are excited to work with BBBS in facilitating leadership and change management for their staff. If you
have ever read the book, The Carpenter, then you come to realize that giving promotes value and
growth far beyond what we ourselves ever envision. I am proud to work for an organization that
embraces this very philosophy.”
The 2-3 hour Global Day of Giving workshop is personalized to suit the needs of each individual local
agency, and will focus on one of three themes: Leadership Development, Stress Management, and/or
Intentional Living. The goal is to provide underserved youth and agency staff workers with techniques
that will improve their communication skills, strengthen their people skills, and enhance their success at
work and in daily life.
"As a nonprofit organization, our employees are highly engaged with the communities we serve. Dale
Carnegie Training will help them stay enthusiastic, motivated and inspired to successfully support our
mission," said Shawan Gabriel, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Forsyth and Davie counties.
“For over 100 years, Dale Carnegie has been a part of the local landscape, helping leaders at every level
achieve greater influence and be more effective. We believe the human relationship principles this
company is built on need to be shared widely. This initiative is a great way to provide transformational
skills development to people who might not otherwise have a chance to attend one of our courses,”
says Hart. “We want to be sure that our young people, especially our at-risk populations, have the skills
they need to succeed in life. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our founding than by helping
others make a change for the better.”
