“You helped us communicate with a broad audience through our public speaking and our webcasts. You invested a lot of time understanding our organization. Your coaching was practical, insightful and a tremendous value. Absolutely wonderful!”

Mark Price, Principal, Deloitte Consulting  

“Absolutely phenomenal! David has enabled me to create clear, impactful  presentations and deliver them in a very engaging way that connects with my audience. The results for my career and my business, and what I’m able to motivate people to do, have been simply phenomenal!”

Chuck Raup, VP & GM, The Hershey Company

“David helped me get to the next level in communicating my message. It makes a big difference to access a coach like David and get expert advice on content and delivery.”

Neil Lindsay, Vice President, Boost Mobile, A Sprint Company

“David was able to take a look at our story, work with each of our salespeople, meet them on their level, and teach everybody how they could do their job better. He made our presentations better and also made our people better, and that’s really all you can ask for of a trainer.”

Tim McCabe, National Sales Director, Stadion Money Management

“One week after the coaching, I gave the best presentation of my life! I never felt the adrenaline of a standing ovation before.”

Lori Frazier, VP of Communications, First Horizon National Corp.

“You taught me how to create a great speech from the beginning to the end, to insert comedy and a genuine quality that is me.”

William Edmundson, Vice President, Hilton Hotels

“Can you imagine being the CEO and having panic attacks? Under David’s guidance and using his techniques, confidence in my speaking ability soared. The more I do it the more I love it!”

Beatrice Scherer, CEO & President, GF Health Products

“Thanks to David’s help and noticeable improvements in my presentation skills, I was promoted. I want to thank David for all his hard work and dedication to me.”

Sam Martz, Director, E-Commerce, Coca Cola

“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.”

Waldo “The Wingman” Waldman, Combat Decorated Fighter Pilot,
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
