“I would trade all the time I have spent over the decades reading best-selling leadership books for one hour with David Berry. He is that effective.”
– Jeffrey Donahue, zoomMediaPlus, Inc.
I love to tell stories that get to the heart of change. Most often, those stories have to do with the many difficult lessons I have learned about accepting reality and learning what’s needed for the way forward.
Samuel Johnson said that “people need to be reminded more often than they need to be instructed.” My stories are offered to remind people of their inherent capacity for successful change and to encourage them to muster the resources to get on with it already!
Through traditional keynote talks as well as half and full day workshop settings, I challenge and inspire audiences to reflect, learn and apply their inherent “know how” to the challenges they face as participants and leaders in organizational life.
Please send your inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can begin discussing how to create an meaningful and powerful learning event for you and your team.
To get to know more about me and my style of speaking and presenting, there are two interviews available in the audio player to the right as well as the video samples above and below. Thanks so much for your interest!
