My WHY is to propel people forward so they can make their mark on the world.


How do you find the right job?

Do we deserve to be fulfilled by our work?

Starting with Why, Authenticity & Implementation

The Golden Circle


David, thank you for making our event a tremendous success. You mesmerized our audience with your thought-provoking, in-depth presentation of WHY. Your message resonated with attendees as one of the profound presentations that made a lasting impression. Your delivery just tied in so well with the overall goal of the summit. We would love to have you come back as one of our speakers.


We so loved David’s presentation! The initial reviews I have received were all positive. He did an excellent job instilling energy and getting everyone excited about our Why.


Walking our senior management through the 'Start With Why' discipline was invaluable. The true benefits of your session won’t truly be felt in total for some time, but the important gestation period has begun. You successfully engaged our group in a re-evaluation of why our company exists. This is particularly relevant now, as we have undergone significant change recently due to new leadership, acquisitions and partnerships that have transformed us into a global force. The power of how a personal Why fits, or does not fit, with a departmental or corporate Why will undoubtedly lead our associates on a path toward greater satisfaction in their careers.
