David Cory is a dynamic keynote presenter

Keynote or plenary talks are presentations to large groups of employees or delegates at conferences, meetings, and special events. We work with you to design the presentation that will best meet your needs and expectations. Your group will learn about emotional intelligence and how it is critical and relevant to their success in whatever they do. We want to make sure they have some tools and techniques to use immediately back in the workplace, and that they are inspired, entertained, and enjoy the learning.

Presentations are always customized for the specific needs of audiences. These presentations can focus on Emotional Intelligence Skill Development; Introduction to Emotional Intelligence; Emotional Intelligence and Leadership, Emotional Intelligence and Team Effectiveness and more.

Smash hit

Gord Aker

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.

"Our group was captivated by David's excellent presentation on emotional intelligence. He challenged our already existing perceptions of how emotions affect our workplaces and the effectiveness of our association's performance. Through laughter, tears and song, David's engaging presentation style enthralled us all, and he taught us new tools on how to be better leaders. We would highly recommend David!" - Dr. Kevin MacAulay, 2016 President of the Alberta Veterinary Medical Association

Depth of knowledge

I hired David to conduct emotional intelligence training with a group of emotionally well-grounded people. His approach and depth of knowledge made the sessions enjoyable and he provided subtle insights and a common language for us to deepen our ability to move with greater emotional effectiveness in our leadership and in our customer service.
