Dan Baker

Dan Baker is a nationally known speaker, teacher and consultant to the trucking industry. He travels extensively throughout the United States and Canada, working with numerous trucking companies of all sizes and types. He speaks at meetings and gatherings of all kinds, from driver safety meetings, to award dinners, state and national conventions, to in-company seminars and symposiums.  Essentially, his message is the people side of trucking. His presentations are always full of jokes, stories, and one-liners. But he never departs far from his basic theme that if you’re in trucking today, first of all you’re in the people business and secondly, you’re in the trucking business.

​Dan began his career working years ago as a Methodist Minister in San Antonio, Texas. After leaving the ministry, he evolved into a professional speaker and, since connecting with the trucking industry in the early 1980’s, has dedicated the majority of his time, effort, and interest toward helping the truckers make sense out of their very complicated, complex world.

​After living in Bulverde, Texas for almost 40 years, Dan and his wife, Betty, moved to Fort Worth, Texas. He will tell you that you can take the boy out of Bulverde, but you can’t take Bulverde out of the boy. So, he is still well-known for his famous “Bull Jokes” and his unique array of down-home humor.

​Dan will still tell you that all the roads and the loads and the routes and the rates and the maps and the phones and the fuel, take second place to the mamas and daddies and husbands and wives and sons and daughters who give us our meaning and make it all happen.

In addition to his notoriety as a speaker, Dan is also well known for his online training series, The Dan Baker Dispatcher-Driver Relationship Program.  This program has helped hundreds of companies across the nation improve communication and understanding between drivers and their driver managers.
