In 1996 David became the first New Zealander to ever win the prestigious Toastmasters World Champion of Public Speaking title. David is an entertaining, motivational speaker.

Prior to this, David spent many years in corporate management roles. David joined Toastmasters over 20 years ago to overcome his lack of confidence and fear of speaking to a group of people. He made history in August 1996 when he competed in and won the World Championship of Public Speaking in the USA. He became the first New Zealander in the 70+ year history of Toastmasters International to win the coveted award. He has also won numerous other awards, including the 1996 New Zealand’s Most Entertaining Speaker and in 2017 was made a CSP - a Certified Speaking Professional - an accolade only shared by only 1000 of the other best speakers in the world.

David is a well know dynamic, humorous and motivational speaker and one of his messages has an amazing impact on audiences - “Dare to Dream”. The message is simple, it’s humorous and most importantly it can be applied to motivate and inspire any individual or company. David can tailor his speeches to meet the specific needs of any organisation’s event in every aspect and detail.
