About the Presenter

Daniel M. Isard, MSFS, is the founder of The Foresight Companies. In the last four decades, Dan has been the most published person in funeral service writing four books, over 1,000 articles published in our profession’s magazines and presented almost 2,000 hours of seminars. He has appraised over 4,000 funeral homes and cemeteries. He has helped more than 500 people transfer their business to all forms of buyers including family, key people, and large operators. Dan and Foresight have helped create almost $1 billion in financing to support these transactions and other business needs. He has been an expert witness in more than 125 cases nationwide, including the Menorah Garden’s case. He brings all this experience to bear in his humorous presentation style. In 2021, Dan “retired” from the active management of Foresight, turning over the company to his partners, Chris Cruger and Doug Gober. He continues to work with some clients and is the coordinator of the I-Succession Plan of the IFDF.  When not working, Dan spends his time in Sedona, Arizona golfing, scuba diving off some remote island, or spending time with his kids and grandchildren.
