“As a Malcolm Baldrige award winner, our bar is very high. David exceeded our expectations in every way—he is funny, warm, caring, inspiring and knows how to create a great learning experience among a diverse audience. He customized the learning to our specific needs—something that too few facilitators invest in or worry about. If you are looking for a professional who knows his trade through and through, I can unequivocally say that David should be your first choice.”

Martha Davis, Organization Development, Heartland Health

“David evaluated my keynote speech from a structural and message level. He is, without a doubt, one of the top coaches I've ever worked with and I've worked with some of the best in the industry. He's experienced, authentic and gets to the core. A true professional.”

Best-Selling Author and Professional Speaker

“People used to dread listening to my technical team. Now their presentations are fantastic!”

Lisa Foster, Vice President, Sterigenics International

“Before working with David I would avoid speaking in front of groups. Since working with David I have actually gotten up in front of others as often as possible. We also asked David to [present at] our sales kickoff meeting, and he was one of the most engaging and popular speakers at our three-day event. I recommend David to anyone who's interested in gaining more confidence and ability to make an impact when speaking in front of others.”

Jim Dodson, Senior Vice President, Iron Mountain
