nce upon a time, before I became a storytelling speaker, I voyaged on a small sailboat with $30 and a locker full of food and dreams. I journeyed thousands of miles through the Bahamas, across the Atlantic, and up the east coast of the United States in search of stories.
I’m Dave Bricker, storytelling speaker, trainer, consultant, and coach. My keynotes and workshops offer true stories of adventure at sea—storms, calms, standing watch, and trimming sails—as metaphors for the challenges you and your organization face while navigating the seas of commerce. I call it StorySailing.™
Corporate audiences: Understand and rewrite the stories that lie at the heart of your corporate culture and business strategy. Craft stories that attract and retain top talent, build stronger relationships with colleagues and clients, solve problems, create marketing messages that connect and engage, and make professional life meaningful.
Writers, speakers, professionals, and visionaries: As an author, editor, educator, marketer, and MFA Graphic designer, I have helped thousands of remarkable people find, polish, and share their remarkable stories in media ranging from words to music to design to technology.
