Type: Keynot, expert on leadership and organizational design
David is an energetic speaker whose claim to fame is his success as a Navy Captain. During his time in the Navy, he took over the lowest ranked submarine, and through superb leadership skills, turned it into the highest performing sub in the US Navy.
Pros: Very entertaining speaker who engages the audience and uses a few interactive polling questions to involve the audience in the presentation. The presentation I saw was a combination of leadership topics and interesting stories about his time as a Navy Captain.
Cons: His presentation is a little bit like Mike Abrashoff, whose presentation is about the Captain who turns around the ship.
Bottom Line: Entertaining speaker who was informative and entertaining. Fits well with any military or nautical theme.
