What to Expect
Clients have described David as "genuine," "authentic," and "real." Authenticity is actually part of what David stresses in his talks, and David walks-the-walk. His presentations are both authentic and passionate, as David tailors every speech to have the greatest impact on each unique audience. Your employees will laugh, cry, and learn, as David has an uncommon ability to connect with people from all walks of life. He utilizes his years of 'boots-on-the-ground" experience in retail and restaurant management, along with his advanced education and evidence-based arguments to simultaneously inspire and educate. After every speech David remains available to answer questions, clarify lessons, and keep the fire ignited far beyond the seminar date.
As the owner of a popular ice cream parlor in Baltimore City, David spent a decade working with at-risk teenagers and young adults from some of the roughest neighborhoods in the country. There, he created a culture of Positivity, Possibility, and Purpose that helped his employees overcome all the challenges before them, both at work and beyond. In an industry infamous for it's challenges, David's unique brand of Passionate Management resulted in unprecedented levels of retention, engagement, and morale.
David is constantly stressing the importance of embracing the ultimate meaning in everything, and through David's vision, his crew found meaning in scooping Ice Cream.
"Sometimes, we just need to adjust how we view life. We weren't serving ice cream! We were serving family celebrations after a kid won his soccer game. We were serving a little bit of empathy to the lonely widow that would come visit us each week. We weren't serving ice cream, we were serving people, and there is something very meaningful in that," David explains. "How many of us get so bogged down in what we are doing at work, that we begin to confuse the what with the why? At the end of the day, no matter what industry you might think you are in, we are all in the same industry: the people industry, and that's something to be proud of."
There is no competitive advantage like the advantage of having a workforce that is passionate about their company and the role they play within it. David has worked within the small business, corporate, and non-profit sectors, and has found his "3 Ps of Passion" philosophy to be universally successful.
Positivity - In life, you find what you are looking for. Focus on opportunity and success.
Possibility- We are only limited by our own perception! Grow yourself and those around you.
Purpose -Stop focusing on the what and connect with the why. Find meaning in all that you do.
