Roger StixDavid knows branding. I have been working with David from time to time on my company branding. He has deep insights and a sharp, fast mind.

He also taught me an important lesson for today’s economy – Branding is as important for individuals as it is for companies. Your Qalisis, linkedin, blogging are all part of your “brand” and they need to be managed… David can help.

Hadriane KalfusDavid spoke to our Wednesday morning Job Transition group recently and empowered us to brand ourselves and to show ourselves in the best possible way to achieve our goals. David has a wonderful personality, is very articulate and extremely knowledgeable. His ideas and way of looking at how to attain our goals was wonderfully informative and got us rethinking how we approach the job market. David’s presentation was unique and yet sensible for today’s economy. I urge everyone to hear David speak as soon as you can!

Jennifer SturgeonDavid was recommended to me as a guest speaker and he graciously agreed to present his “personal branding” topic to our C3G women’s networking group. His discussion was extremely insightful and helped many to refocus and reconsider how to present your best self and skills while in job transition. We appreciate him paying it forward!

Christine SchmidtDavid gave a presentation on “personal branding” to our C3G group recently.

He explained what personal branding is, and we gained an understanding of how important it is — how it is NOT about just shouting your name everywhere — but in fact about focusing attention on our authentic strengths and building a positive reputation.

A positive reputation then brings you more of the kind of work you want to do, the kind of work that you excel at. As a result of his speech, most of us came away feeling more focused and motivated to tell our own story (in a job search) – more confident about who we are.
Thank you, David!!

Rachael KaplanDavid’s presentation was informative and interesting. General sentiment in the room afterward was that it was a topic that many people had not really thought about before as in depth as David presented it. It got the room thinking and David did a wonderful job of fielding questions afterward. He was reliable and punctual and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend him as a speaker for any future event!
