Dave has been an exclusive speaker with the National Speaker's Bureau and Global Speaker's Agency since 2008. He has given presentations on leadership, teamwork, risk management, exploration, spaceflight, motivation and peak performance to audiences around the world. His clients have included Fortune 100 companies, healthcare and aerospace organizations.

I found Dave to be an exceptional educator with a remarkable ability to weave his unique experience as a physician and Canadian astronaut into meaningful content that is very relevant to the corporate environment.
