"As a leadership group we found the Intentionomics presentation of immense value at a personal and business level. David's presentation style naturally energises the whole group, engages you all intimately and drives great outcomes. Would recommend it to any group who are serious about developing their talent." CEO, RI ADVICE GROUP

“One of the advisers at the Sydney program had just spent the weekend at a world renown motivational speaker's event and commented to me that he got more value out of your 45 minute presentation, which is a great reflection on the power of your presentation!”


David’s personal, funny stories made the whole messaging very genuine and enjoyable which resulted in the great audience engagement we all felt throughout the presentation. I would highlight again how much it meant that you dedicated your entire day to observe the participants and listen to all sessions in order to gain a better understanding of the context. While your very detailed preparation was well grounded by the several phone briefings and personal meetings, you were still willing to come along and learn more about the organisation and our people. Nowadays this is a very rare experience and it is greatly appreciated.


As the keynote speaker at our Franchise Conference, David was engaging, motivational and entertaining. The feedback we received was more than positive and we were impressed with how his presentation was tailored to our personal needs.

LJ Hooker

David was the anchor speaker responsible for closing our 2016 Broker 2020 roadshow to over 1,400 brokers over 4 events nationally. He proved a great choice due to his enthusiasm, humour and ability to tie the event outcomes together. I was very impressed by David's choice to attend the first full day of the Broker 2020 series, to ensure he successfully closed the event. I would not have any hesitation in recommending David for future events.
