Customer Testimonials


Because passion is the most important ingredient to a great speech, you need guidance from a speaking expert who is passionate about the craft. Dave has given me really concrete feedback and encouragement that empowered me to refine my work. I really enjoy working with him and he's truly engaged, really "gets it" when it comes to the work of a speaker, and really dives in to understand your topic area and what potential you and your content have to shine. If you think all this "passion" talk is corny, all the more reason you need Dave in order to get past that feeling, find where your passion sits, and embrace it.

I have known Dave since the late 1990s when we worked together. His enthusiasm for teaching and sharing his vast knowledge lights up a room. He combines technical know-how with warmth, compassion and fun - a rare combination. He is able to break down even the most complex concepts into actionable steps for participants at any level.

Dave is engaging, talented, and knowledgeable in providing the building blocks for confidence and key components to focus on in public speaking. He brought my focus to what really matters in being a successful speaker. For those who think they can't, Dave will help you realize you truly can achieve success in public speaking!

If I was forced to describe Dave in one word it would be enthusiasm. I was always amazed how willing and ready he was to go the extra mile whether doing employee training or traveling to some far off city to train others. Dave took great pride in not just presenting to others but developing presentations and training programs that enriched the learning experience. He is a great presenter of course due to this and seems to enjoy it immensely. If I had the opportunity I would work with him again with no hesitations. If you want someone who truly is an employee owner for your company, Dave behaves as such.
