Theodore “Ted” Daniels is a global financial educator with more than 35 years of experience in spearheading strategic financial literacy and professional development training for higher education institutions, individuals, nonprofits, corporate and government organizations. Before establishing the Society for Financial Education and Professional Development, Inc. (SFE&PD), Ted Daniels worked at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development where he served in managerial capacities related to finance.
In 1998, Daniels founded SFE&PD to help individuals to achieve their personal financial goals by teaching financial management skills. He realized that many Americans, especially first-generation college students and underrepresented groups, did not have access to financial literacy knowledge to manage their finances. For 20 years, SFE&PD has taught financial education to audiences of all ages, including underrepresented groups, to help them gain them skills and knowledge they need to become financially empowered.
SFE&PD conducts dynamic customized financial education workshops for college students, nonprofits, foundations, private sector clients, and Federal employees. SFE&PD is often called on to create new financial literacy initiatives and help groups successfully teach and train others in financial literacy. Under Daniel’s direction, SFE&PD has become one of the nation’s leading financial literacy and professional development organizations and trained over 300,000 individuals, including 260,000 students at over 90 colleges and universities nationwide, primarily at HBCUs.
