Recent Client Comments on Dave's Presentations

I have just arrived back in the office from the Jobs Australia conference and I wanted to drop you a quick line and say how much I appreciated your workshop on Wednesday. I purchased the set of audio CD's and am finding them a very helpful refresher of the subjects we covered. Your presentation alone made it a worthwhile trip.

Julie S. Howard, Foundation Director, Carolina East


Just wanted to pass on a quick note of thanks for last week?s rather inspiring presentation that you gave. I have often felt that we sell ourselves short when it comes to making our dreams a reality. I realize that not all of our dreams will turn out just how we want them to, but one never knows until they try. I feel rather inspired to start trying a few things that I have in mind and see where it leads!
Neal Futrell, Co-owner, LightHouse Contracting Services


You did a great job. I really appreciate that. I felt like your presentation added a new dimension to our meeting and I hope it inspired a few folks. They seemed to be enjoying your information and enthusiasm.
