Keynote Addresses

Dave's keynote addresses and motivational programs are powerful, exciting, and entertaining. Here's a sampling of the programs he presents around the world:

How to Thrive - Not JUST Survive - In a Soft or Rebounding Economy

Why do Starbucks, Nike, and many other companies new to the marketplace and with price points significantly higher than their competition, continue to thrive?  What have aggressive businesses such as Marriott, Avis, Southwest Airlines, and McDonald's done to provide a quality of service which overwhelmingly exceeds the customers' expectations?

Marketing Madness, Metamorphosis,
and Motivation

Never have people been to a marketing seminar that focused on non-traditional marketing strategies in a very traditional market the way this seminar does.  This program is unique in that participants will complete a template enabling them to look at their business more objectively and in ways they never dreamed of.

  • What unique position do you really own in your market?  When your customer needs your products and services, do they think of you first, second, or not at all?

  • 24 myths of marketing and how they can potentially cause y ou to waste valuable marketing and promotion dollars.

Branding - what it is and what meaningful steps you can take to develop and enhance your valuable brand.

Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

Dave's newest keynote speech, inspired by his trip to Mt. Everest, is an exciting program that will help you look at every aspect of your life to determine where your priorities really are and focus not upon what you should be doing but what you really want to do.  Surrounded by the accoutrements of his trip, including prayer flags and his tent, Dave draws you into this exciting experience of self-discovery.

How to Communicate With Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime

This speech is designed to help your people interact more effectively with others in today's fast-paced business environment. Based on an entertaining style analysis completed by the audience, Dave provides strategies for enhancing their loyalty and commitment to the company, themselves, and their customers.

M.A.G.I.C. - Discover the Power of Your Personal and Professional Magic

This is a very different, powerful, high-energy keynote or banquet speech incorporating Dave's prestidigitation with an address that focuses on the objective of your meeting and the personal and professional goals of the audience. This speech will absolutely leave your people with renewed energy and enthusiasm.

Success - What It Is and How to Get It

A powerful opener or closer to a dynamic meeting where fast-paced professionals are eager to move their personal and professional lives forward. Stories and anecdotes focus on people who have either overcome significant challenges to become winners or people who have created something from nothing.


"There are no words in 'Webster's' that come anywhere close to adequately describing the impact of your presentation/seminar at our most recent management team meeting in Atlanta . . . tremendous, successful, dynamic, beneficial, etc. merely scratch the surface. We have used a number of professional speakers during our meetings over the past 2-1/2 years, and you are in a class by yourself in both delivery and content."

B.C. Morrow, Jr., Assistant Vice President - AT&T

"PROCHEM's 1998 international dealer meeting was a huge success! A great part of the credit for that success belongs to your insightful thought-provoking, and motivational keynote presentation and follow-up breakout workshops. The time you spent with us in pre-meeting preparation and researching our distributors' needs certainly paid off."

Hank Unck, Vice President Marketing & Sales - PROCHEM

"We would like to thank you for your inspirational presentation at this year's College Enrichment Day. Judging from the laughter that filled the auditorium, your survey on personality types proved to be entertaining as well as educational. My committee has received many praises and positive comments for your address  . . . this was one of the best they have ever seen thus far."

Jinhee Jahng, Chairman - University of Chicago

"We were most appreciative to have you as our keynote sales and motivational speaker.  Your presentation reflected your ability to both educate and entertain our personnel and provide a positive learning experience for all in attendance.  Your mastery of the podium and your ability to focus our group on the positive material you presented demonstrated your professionalism in public motivational speaking."
