David is the author of Paid to THINK: A Leader’s Toolkit for Redefining Your Future, a work for which he 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 leadership challenges and opportunities.
David is the recipient of awards and accolades for his entrepreneurial achievements in a range of different industries. During his twelve years of professoriate at New York University, he received the university’s Excellence in Teaching Award. David was honored as the first-ever recipient of the Hollywood Producers’ Global Visionary Disrupter 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 plat-forms, 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.
Maximize your potential and become the leader you always wanted to be.
