My job as a featured or keynote speaker is to inspire, motivate and educate. The inspiration comes from my stories, delivery and audience engagement – all essential elements of a great presentation. The motivation comes from a high energy and exciting one hour together and the education comes from the nuggets of knowledge, ideas and concepts that I leave behind to ensure my effectiveness. All of my presentations can be customized to suit any audience.

“David’s wealth of knowledge and experience in the area of project management and leadership was very apparent as he delivered his engaging keynote presentation at our recent Ontario Public Service International Project Management Day Conference and Awards event. David engaged our audience with his charisma and positive energy, while delivering insightful messages on thinking, communicating and looking like a leader which resonated with people at all levels of our audience. He brings a fresh, dynamic perspective to a very familiar topic and gave us a chance to have some “aha” moments. It was a pleasure to have David kick off our event as our keynote speaker as it set the foundation for an overall successful event.” Liz MacKenzie, Head IT Source, Central Agencies Cluster, Treasury Board Secretariat
“I couldn’t have asked for a more engaged and engaging public speaker to give the opening keynote presentation at my most recent summit. David’s work in project management as both a practitioner and an aggregator of universal best practices is impressive, and my audience was delighted to walk away with copies of his latest book, The Keys to Our Success. I look forward to working with David again on future events, and I encourage other conference producers building programs for an executive-level audience to give him a call. You will not be disappointed.” Geoff Micks, North American Energy Summits Portfolio Manager, WTG Events
“You brought style, smarts, and enthusiasm to our meeting, along with warmth, and charisma. Your quick wit, thoughtful insights, and humorous, engaging style kept us entertained for the entire evening. Our members enjoyed not only your message, but also the humorous and real life way in which it was delivered.” Jim Lanigan, Business Analyst, Home Hardware Stores Limited, President, Waterloo-Wellington IIBA Chapter.
“We found David’s presentation motivating, entertaining, and thought provoking. David’s unique style and ability to energize the audience provided a refreshing perspective.” Corey McDougall, VP of Marketing, PMI Regina South Saskatchewan Chapter
“The way David delivers this knowledge is so dynamic and interactive that makes people literally ‘jumping’ up from their chairs” to participate in the discussions. It is very interesting the way David collects the audience’s ideas about a specific topic and transitions to the next topic. It is like all ideas are converging to the same place very smoothly.” Bruno Freitas, Sierra Systems
