About Tony Dadante
Anthony DaDante has spent the past 35 years embodying the very essence of the term “Change Agent.” He has helped reposition, recharge, and vigorously support corporate leaders at world-class companies such as Mattel, Hewlett Packard, General Motors, Harley Davidson, BP, Shell, Allied Signal, Eurest, Honeywell, Eaton, and other global companies. He’s equally comfortable coaching the top leaders or helping a single mom develop a six figure entrepreneurial home based business.
A calculated risk-taker with deep multi-industry knowledge, Tony has excelled in a variety of assignments. They include leading numerous M&A deals and taking on the ultimate business challenge — the design, development and operation of three successful entrepreneurial ventures. He is considered in some circles to be a master provocateur whose forte is bringing the “undiscussables” to the table early and often.
Tony’s candor and all-in mindset was forged early in life. Losing both parents at an early age and having numerous family members with severe illnesses, he was forced to learn fast and constantly make choices – some of which led him to poor decisions and compromised outcomes. His successful struggle to overcome hardship informed his becoming a champion for people’s rights. He supports numerous social causes, including ending domestic violence, the “Me Too” movement, diversity initiatives, and gang intervention to name a few.
Tony is all about walking the talk and moving toward the gunfire. He is a trained security operator with uncanny grit and a “never give up” mindset. He has literally put his life on the line, confronting violence and injustice head-on.
He speaks candidly and eloquently about his journey. His candor, generosity, and “all in” mindset is both captivating and inspiring.
DaDante holds a Boston College MBA, studied Organization and Personal Change at Bowling Green and Marquette Universities, received his Bachelor’s degree in the Social Sciences from SUNY Buffalo and a PHD Bridge in Business Administration from UC-Irvine. He currently co-owns a business in the Personal Security space called Stay Safe Urban Defense. He is considered an expert in the street self-defense and tactical weapons worlds.
