About the Instructor

Dean  VanDyke

Dean Van Dyke is a Certified Business Coach and Consultant, sought-after Speaker and Trainer,
and a contributing author to The Six-Figure Coach Magazine. For more than 25 years, Dean has
been inspiring, motivating, and equipping others to live out their dreams. A person of strong
faith, Dean, has devoted himself to developing and strengthening the personal and professional
growth of others through business coaching, training, speaking engagements, and, most
importantly, serving others.



Dean has lead companies through inventory optimization, achieving reduced on-hand product
from $20 million to $1.5 million in 4 months. Dean transformed a fiscally distressed business to
profitability by doubling revenue from $1M to $2M in just six short months. He optimized
financial reconciliation processes using Lean techniques for yet another client, resulting in a
dramatic reduction in cycle time from 4 weeks to 2 days. And, by successfully renegotiating
with a client’s vendors, Dean created a savings of $2.5 million for that client!



Dean has a proven record of success with coming alongside struggling businesses and helping to
right the ship. His carefully crafted, customized methodology allows business owners to see
revenues increase, see debt and liability reduced, and see a brighter view of a once bleak
business forecast. A key competent of these turnarounds are Dean’s ability to identify root
causes of ongoing missteps, causes that are not readily apparent, and create the most damage.
Dean makes practical ways to attack these missteps while still maintaining the business’s core
identity and the business owner’s foundational vision.
