You don’t know the power of your life story until you hear someone else’s.


David delivers keynote speeches that engage people to their core. Are you ready to be inspired?


In this 60- or 75-minute keynote presentation audiences will:

  • Be inspired by extraordinary stories of ordinary people – just like them.
  • Reflect on how their life story shapes the way they work.
  • Be inspired by stories of how others have overcome self-imposed limits.
  • Elevate the emotional intelligence of leaders.
  • Understand how pain can motivate people to perform at higher levels.
  • Ignite renewed empathy for colleagues and peers [the people they work with].
  • Be energized by the opportunity to connect with people at a deeper level.
  • Own the power of their story.


Everyone in your organization has the power to bring out the best in someone else. How? Through the power of their own story. Adversity and resilience. Tragedy and triumph. Failure and grit. Its life experiences and the way we endure them that forge who we are as professionals and leaders.


Like the story of Scott McAlister whose college football career was suddenly cut short when a head-on collision killed his twin brother and nearly paralyzed him. Learn how courage and perseverance helped him achieve great heights in his life and career.


When we examine our lives and understand how our experiences have shaped us, we grow as leaders and catalyze people around us to burst through self-imposed limits.

David will light your career on fire with his passion.
