on his experience and success as a professional
athlete, a Division One collegiate coach, and now a
professional communicator, David offers an
important, motivational message on reaching your
greatest potential in business and life all the
while gaining true fulfillment from the "career
home" you are building.
critical stages of building are metaphorically
detailed--laying the foundation (your mission),
framing it up (your preparation), finishing touches
(your execution), and finally, the philosophy of
"home" (your satisfaction).
This is a seminal message applicable for anyone in
any field of business. PowerPoint and video clips
from the movie "Chariots of Fire" accompany the
follow-up breakout session/workshop is also
available to help attendees personalize the message.
Workshop length: 60-90 minutes
