CARRIE B.TEDx Associate

DIANA A.Leadership Training Specialist

David is intelligent and charismatic, and cares about people. I have been a leadership and management instructor in a demanding industry for many years – those are traits you cannot teach or inspire – one either has it or they don’t. David has it.
