ac·knowl·edg·ment - əkˈnäləjmənt/ 
noun: acknowledgement:

"The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated." 
- William James

David leads workshops, serves as an acknowledgement consultant for organizations of all sizes, and provides coaching to aspiring and established speakers. 

Having worked in the government, private sector, and also having run a nationally recognized non-profit organization, David has seen firsthand the impact that specific timely, and heartfelt acknowledgements make on the workplace culture. 

David's believes that people are literally starving for some form of acknowledgement in all areas of their life, not just work. But, since the average person spends at least a third of their life at their place of employment, the need for acknowledgement at a person's job is a glaring one. Statistics show that an unacknowledged staff member is an unproductive staff member. With acknowledgement, an employee's engagement and contribution can increase dramatically.

Using simple and proven techniques, David can quickly teach company owners, CEOs, and frontline managers effective methods of acknowledgement through workshops, speeches, and private consulting and coaching.
