DYNAMIC KEYNOTE SPEECHES

21 – 90 Minute Keynote Speech:

Dave’s unique ability to captivate the listener comes from his enthusiastic street-savvy style and his ability to fuse real-life stories with the innate desire to, “Go first”; to serve in the most challenging situations. He stretches the boundaries of your comfort zone, leaving no alternative but to trust the system, trust your cohort, and trust yourself.

 

Dave’s speeches are contextualized for the dynamic environments within the public and private sector, based on the needs of the client.School Districts have most consistently hired him for “In Service Half Days” to speak on subjects such as the following:

For Students

  • Courage Under Fire- A great speech for pre-test motivation and relaxation! Did you know that we are born with only two biological fears?  The fear of heights and the fear of loud noises.  Everything else is a learned fear.  When we understand fear and the place from which it originates, we are more capable of overcoming it.            This is also a great Anti-Bullying Speech- A supplement to the “David’s Law” policies.  We believe in the philosophy of leadership and team building expert John Maxwell, who reminds us that “Hurting People Hurt People.” This speech focuses on the innate desire within us all to do good with a unique perspective from the bully's eyes, while imparting wisdom about the true fire power behind a positive self-image.

  • Belief System for Greatness-  A great speech to begin your school year with the right mindset for success.  Visualization of a successful outcome has been linked to some of the greatest achievements ever recorded.

  • A Values-Based Mindset for Success-  A “Character Counts” speech for those who’ve been struggling with bad choices and have been identified as “at risk” or are struggling with harmful substances, or a harmful environment.  With a leadership twist, this is also a great speech for a commencement ceremony before graduation.

  • Courage to Step Out of Your Comfort Zone-  With a focus on the components of the “Decision Making Cycle” this speech is great for any time within the school year.  Information overload occurs when the amount of input to a system exceeds its processing capacity. Decision makers have fairly limited cognitive processing capacity. Consequently, when information overload occurs, it is likely that a reduction in the quality of decisions will occur. 

  • Leaders Make Every Second Count-  Acts of greatness come in 20 second opportunities.  This is a call to action for an upcoming freshman class stepping into a new role with new challenges, or a senior class expected to lead by example throughout the year.  It’s a message of ownership and an urgency for action, 

  • Rising from the Ashes-  Getting students to talk about a traumatic event can be one of the greatest challenges for an educational facility.  The residual effects are equally hard to measure, but have been linked by brain experts, and clinical institutions to many problems long after the event.  This speech links the communication responsibilities of the individual for personal and team success.
