On the ground at Washington, IL where complete neighborhoods were wiped out. The destruction was horrific when you see that nothing not even bricks were left. Everything was “pluverized” not blown apart but pluverized where you can’t tell where one house began or ended. It was like houses were dumped into a big blender and…
What a fun weekend! I have been in Las Vegas all weekend judging at the 2013 World Food Championships. I feel like I’m saying this all the time, but the creativity and the world of barbecue is exploding! The first day I got to enjoy visiting with raving barbecue fans, then Saturday was the top…
What people are saying about Dave
“…all the students enjoyed your energy, story and passion, and you were clearly voted one of the top speakers. Statements such as “have more speakers like Famous Dave” are echoed on many evaluations. I asked the students to tell me what they learned at camp that they have been able to use in school or life. One student gave a great example on how you impacted her life. Here is the response from a student at Forest Lake Senior High School: thanks to Famous Dave, a marvelous public speaker and very motivating, stated that no matter what you are being paid you should always work as if you are making more. I am only making $6.70, and before going to camp I was very discouraged about my income. After I returned from camp, I began to work as if I was making twenty dollars an hour. Before I knew it, I was moved to the sales floor where I have the ability to make commissions, and interact with people on a professional level. The position is more promising for my future…”

It is obvious that you speak from your heart, Dave, and your sincerity and dedication touch people. It isn’t easy to get a room full of bankers to deliver a resounding standing ovation, but that’s what happened. There also was a continuing “buzz” about your presentation for the remainder of the convention.
You delivered your message with energy and enthusiasm and emphasized two universal keys to living: Adversity can build depth of character, and problems are really life’s opportunities.
As VP of Publishing at Nightingale-Conant, I’ve had the unique opportunity to attend a wide variety of personal development seminars and programs. I can honestly say that Lifeskills Leadership 1 is among the best programs I have ever attended. Every aspect of the program—-from the trainers, to the curriculum, to the follow-up after the event—-is first-class! My life was transformed for the better—and yours will be too! I can’t recommend this program highly enough.
