About David

With a degree in political science from the University of Akron, a background in sketch comedy and improvisation, and a passion for positive psychology, David Horning is a motivational speaker with character… several characters, in fact.

He lived in New York City for two years, studying and performing comedy around the city as a number of colorful characters, and produced “Laundry Day,” a sketch comedy show selected for the 2014 New York Comedy Festival. After being floored by the fact that only 32% of people are engaged at work (2016 Gallup State of the Workplace poll), David decided to leave New York to set out on a mission inspiring happiness and engagement as a motivational speaker. He has created a speaking program that has brought laughter, inspiration, and learning to nonprofits, colleges, and businesses across the country. He has been a featured speaker at regional conferences from New York to Idaho, and was featured at the 2016 Garden State SHRM Conference in Atlantic City.

David’s mission is to inspire in others the same excitement, happiness, and meaning that inspires him each day, so in addition to reaching more people through speaking, he continues to perform stand-up comedy, write and produce video sketches, and help fellow comedians hone their material with stage time on his show, "Locally Sourced Comedy," in Cleveland.
