After 25 years of technical education, public speaking coaching, and presentation skills training, Dave’s unique passion for these deliverables grows stronger every day. His favorite two mantras are, “Training is always about the learner, never about the trainer,” and “Make myself obsolete; to do my job so well that the learners master their new skills.” Dave is the CEO of LiveToSpeak where he works with individuals, non-profits, and corporate employees to become the best public speakers they can. Dave also trains them on the ROI methodology of great public speaking success. Dave is a Certified Dale Carnegie Coach and a former member of the Vermont Chapter of the ASTD Board of Directors. He was a speaker at the 2011 ASTD International Conference and Expo in Orlando, FL. Dave is also a published poet and songwriter.
