Danny Brassell is on a mission to bring joy back into the classroom and the workplace -but when he grew up hating reading, his challenge to change the narrative is greater than he expected. Can he get struggling students to choose to read and use reading as their passport to the world? Or will his mission remain unselected?
Life is a choice.
Danny Brassell, a passionate educator, and speaker has dedicated his life to reigniting the joy of reading in children and adults alike. Through his experiences as a teacher in inner-city schools, he realized the importance of fostering a love for reading and has since made it his mission to help people from all walks of life embrace the written word. Danny’s expertise extends to training parents and teachers on engaging reluctant readers and using speaking to grow businesses. As a strong advocate of positive social media use, he also works with CyberSmarties, a platform that teaches children how to use social media responsibly.

In a world where digital entertainment dominates daily life, Danny Brassell saw a fading love for reading among children, especially those in disadvantaged communities.

As a speaker and educator, he now helps parents and teachers engage with struggling and reluctant readers by connecting them to books that align with their interests.
