Client reviews

  • The content of the presentation was right on the mark; a perfect blend of anecdote, medical science, humor and advice that resonated beautifully with our audience. You did a terrific job of incorporating the elements we request that we felt would help ‘globalize’ the content for them given an audience composition made up of literally 20 different nationalities.

  • I wanted to write and thank you on behalf of this entire department for the outstanding job you did presenting to our staff at last week’s retreat. In fact, ‘outstanding’ may be an understatement! Your style, message and your rapport with our group could not have been better. I assure you that what you did helped this organization get better.

  • Post the session, the team provided very positive feedback not only on the content and the tips you shared, but also the refreshing fun manner in which it was delivered – accompanied with scientific facts. The time you invested in delivering a tailored message really paid dividends.

  • David is truly professional, taking the time to research our company and the issues important to us at the time, and ensuring the relevance of his presentation.

  • Thank you for what was an absolutely fantastic presentation. Your comments were practical, timely and relevant to the issues we face in our office and in our profession. We all appreciated the humour. Your mastery of the subject matter was evident and reassuring.

  • You did an extraordinary job addressing our TAP audience and conveying the topic to our group. By the way, the feedback has been fantastic. Suffice to say, the event was a total success and I wanted to let you know that it was primary due to you and your presentation.
