I just wanted to say thanks for a fantastic workshop! I really enjoyed the EI course which re-inspired me on a number of levels – personally, relationally and professionally. The many positive comments that participants were making to each other during lunch and coffee breaks is a measure of just how good this training was. David’s ability to present on EI with a deep respectful interpersonal presence and gentle humor made the hours fly by. Even though I came to the workshop with a solid background knowledge of emotional intelligence, this course’s excellent balance of theory, science and practical applications stretched me even further.

David gave a presentation on Emotional Intelligence to the Calgary Association of Professional Coaches and was a smash hit! He was insightful, knowledgeable and wildly entertaining and we received hugely positive feedback from those that attended. If you are looking for someone to speak to your group or organization about Emotional Intelligence, you need look no further than David. I heartily recommend him without reservation.

David was one of the keynote speakers at the conference I chaired on emotional intelligence. David had a unique approach combining his gift of song and his knowledge of emotional intelligence and was able to deliver a presentation that enthralled the audience. David’s warm and inviting personality connects with people on an emotional level.
