Dr. Daniel Zimmerman has over 15 years working in the educational field as both an instructor but also as an operational manager for large university systems in the United States. Dr. Zimmerman achieved his Bachelor of Science degree from Illinois State University in Normal, IL. There, at ISU, is where he fell in love with education and teaching. Moreover, he has achieved his Master's Degrees in Business Administration (MBA) and Human Resource Management (MHRM) while taking classes virtually and in the classroom. For many, education stops there at the master’s level but not for Dr. Zimmerman. He continued his education and achieved his Doctorate in Management with ODC emphasis from Colorado Technical University. During his research into leadership theories and learning organizations, while finishing his DM degree, he and his business partner developed a model for workforce management which has been the foundation for their consulting firm based in Illinois and Texas. Dr. Zimmerman has an extensive background in strategic human resource management, change management, and workforce management. He teaches at various universities globally at all levels in Business Management and Human Resources.
As a consultant and leader, Dr. Zimmerman has worked with many organizations all around the world assisting with training and course development to an alignment of the HR function. More importantly, though, he has worked with students from all around the world as an educational consultant and an instructor. This knowledge, as well as his experience, has helped him understand what it takes to be successful at the doctorate level.
When not working, Dr. Zimmerman enjoys spending time with this family (wife and three boys) while playing drums for his church. He enjoys Sci-Fi shows and anything on the History Channel.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
