Daryl Powers

Daryl’s honest and sincere approach is refreshing as he openly shares stories of success, failure, and the messes that exist in between.  He’s lived, loved, and grown through grief and recognizes the rugged battles people endure when mourning the loss in our busy world.  

As founder of The Grief Training Center of Wisconsin, Daryl highlights the humanity of grief in our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces, and communities, and promotes each person’s ability to support another in their journey.

In his recent book, The Lies Cancer Told Me: A Journey Toward Truth, Daryl exposes some of the dark quarters of grief often many widows and widowers experience while weaving a path to a bright and rewarding future.

He has led presentations and workshops for small groups and Fortune 500 customers, and audiences find reward through his experience and inspiration.

A native-born of southeastern Wisconsin and a graduate of Marquette University, Daryl spent more than twenty years supporting nationally known companies, while building corporate teams and raising his family.

“Grieving death is a natural, necessary, and common part of our lives”, says Daryl. “Caring for another person in the depths of their grief is one of the greatest gifts one can offer another human being.”
