As a professional speaker, my success is directly impacted by the quality of speeches I give. I had not used a speaking coach before and realized that this was holding back my development. I decided to work with Dave and am elated that I did. Dave is a “hands-on” collaborative coach who delves into the details of your speech line by line. He immersed himself in each word, where to pause, what to emphasize, what gestures to make … everything! Dave helped me create a speech that was 5-10 times more impactful than before and a speech that is now fun for me to deliver. What stands out to me about Dave was his personal commitment to my success. His primary motive was not about making money. I did not feel like I was just a client who was paying him for services. I felt like I had an ally in my corner who was just as concerned about my results as I was. He was also a lot of fun to work with … the process felt less like work and more like play … this increased our creativity too. I highly recommend Dave to people who care about the impact you have when communicating. He will also help you make this process of growth and development fun!
