Motorcycle daredevil to ramp up business motivation
WHAT: Community Business Associates speaker Douglas “Doug Danger” Senecal
WHERE: Oliver Wight Tavern, Old Sturbridge Village
WHEN: 7:15 a.m., April 24, 2015
STURBRIDGE — Four months before attempting a historic motorcycle jump, Douglas “Doug Danger” Senecal imparts a “never give up” message that has carried him through cancer and revs him up to take on new challenges.
The motorcycle daredevil will tell his story at the 7:15 a.m. meeting of Community Business Associates on April 24 in the Oliver Wight Tavern at Old Sturbridge Village.
Already holding a world record for jumping 42 cars on a dirt bike, the Wales resident will jump 22 cars at the Buffalo Chip motorcycle festival in Sturgis, South Dakota on August 6. But this time, at age 53, he will use a much heavier machine: the reconstructed 1972 Harley-Davidson ridden by his friend and boyhood idol, Evil Knievel, who failed in his attempt at this record-breaking jump when the bike was brand new.
Senecal’s soft-spoken message for business people is simple: Know what you want, think big, dream big, act big, and keep going for it. “The definition of success to me is when preparation meets opportunity,” Senecal likes to say.
