If you care about getting the word out about your organization and the great things you do, Dave shows audiences how to promote your good works and accomplishments on to the front page of your newspaper and on the evening news. His storytelling techniques show how easy it is to create publicity and promotions that enable your message, as he says, to walk across the newsroom on to the front page.
Or if you care about improving morale, enhancing customer service, creating a stronger team concept, Dave's fun storytelling speech helps you achieve your goals without listeners realizing they are "learning."
When you gather your people in a room for a special occasion event, the key is to bring to the audience true meaning to the words "special" and "occasion" and "event."
Using laughter and inspiration, the audience responds in both conscious and subconscious ways.
Dave is an award-winning columnist for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in Texas. As a young boy growing up in Manhattan, he hosted a television show live on NBC national television on Saturday mornings. He also sang in the Metropolitan Opera children's chorus. Dave says he peaked at age 14. But the Northeastern lad settled in Texas, where he is known far and wide as "The Yankee Cowboy."
Dave is co-founder of Summer Santa, Inc., one of the largest children's charities in North Texas. Each year, Summer Santa distributes thousands of new toys to needy area children, sends hundreds of children to summer camps, buys back-to-school clothing and school supplies for dozens more and offers free medical checkups for children who otherwise could not afford to see a doctor.
Dave's annual Yankee Cowboy Miniature Golf & Bowling Tournament was a major fundraiser for the program. And as Dave designed it, Summer Santa is run entirely by volunteers with no office expense or paid staff. For more information, visit www.summersanta.org.
