I’ve walked in your shoes and know what it’s like to live the ups and downs of leadership. I'm pretty sure you'll agree that the ups are better, and most of us are looking for ways to continually improve upon yesterday.
Although I have an MBA, my real education has come from my experiences of business ownership, entrepreneurial endeavors, and my years as a consultant, adviser, and coach
hired to help decision makers achieve their desired outcomes.
The strategies and tools that I teach come from these experiences. Unlike the theoretical BS some consultants spew, everything you learn from me has been tested and proven in the "laboratory" of the real world: by decision makers in commerce, nonprofits, governments, by my NYU students, and by myself in my own organizations.
Our clients will agree that everything I teach you (and the way I teach it) works.
And I'll never tell a client to do something that I haven't or wouldn't do myself.
If you'd like to connect, I'd love to hear from you.

David is the recipient of the Hollywood Producers’ first ever Global Visionary Disruptor Award for his work with the Project Moon Hut Foundation. In addition, Hollywood Producers also awarded David and Lorrie Goldsmith for their book, Paid to THINK: A Leader’s Toolkit for Redefining Your Future, a work for which David has earned comparisons to Peter Drucker, the father of modern-day management. Considered by some to be the “Thought Leaders’ Thought Leader”, he is known for replacing common leadership thinking with bold, proven, and sometimes counter-intuitive approaches to address challenges and opportunities for leaders in their professional, public, and personal roles.
David has received awards and accolades for his entrepreneurial achievements in a range of different industries. During his twelve years of professorate at New York University, he received the university’s Excellence in Teaching Award. He was also named by Meetings Magazine as one of its 26 Hottest Speakers for his ability to deliver transformational and engaging “Consulting from the Stage” programs and spoke for the Wharton School of Business an unprecedented five consecutive years. His content is drawn from the depth and diversity of 30 years of business and organizational experience as a practicing businessperson, consultant, and adviser to a global client base. His teachings produce “I’ve-never-thought-of-it-that-way” perspectives from leaders across multiple platforms, industries, and environments.
Though David travels over 300,000 miles annually to work with CEOs, presidents, and CXOs of organizations such as Maersk, Dole, Infosys, Wipro, Aetna, Accenture, Lufthansa, and more, David does not subscribe to an all-work and no-play lifestyle. Whether he’s furthering his skills as a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, improving as a student pilot, experiencing a new culture with “locals” as a world traveler, designing and building his own furniture, skiing, drawing, painting, and sculpting, spending time with family, or helping new friends and old, those closest to David attest that he embodies the promise on the cover of Paid to THINK to Achieve More, Earn More, and Live More.
