Dave blew me away (as well as the audience). His engaging personality and ability to connect with his listeners makes him an amazing speaker.
— Renee McAllister, Senior Marketing Manager, Small Business Segment, LinkedIn.
Dave spoke to over 1,200 college students at the American Marketing Association’s International Collegiate Conference. Keeping the attention of college students is a very hard task...However, Dave did just that.
— Tim (Dugan) Birrittella, American Marketing Association.
We asked Dave to come and speak to a group of law firms (about 10) on the topic of blogging and social media. He did a great job, provided us with a ton of insight and action items. The group thought he was very informative and helpful, and would definitely have him back in the future. Would highly recommend him as a speaker, coach, consultant in social media and blog content.
— Chad Dudley, Dudley DeBosier Law.
Dave is not only extremely knowledgeable, he is engaging and passionate about helping people...Dave captured an entire audience for over an hour, a feat that isn’t easy by any stretch. His humour, combined with both theory and tactics and friendly personality makes him a must-have to start out the morning of any conference or event. Highly recommended.
— Scott Oldford, Limitless Business Day Conference.
Dave delivered! He spoke at Belmont University and the students are still talking about it. He was engaging and authentic; held the attention of 150+ college business students for almost an hour. I highly recommend Dave as an expert speaker on business networking. He would also be a fantastic workshop presenter on the subject. I definitely plan to hire Dave again… He really did rock the place.
