"David came to speak in March of 2020. I had no idea how much I would rely on his advice in the months that followed. COVID 19 struck the country with state-wide lock downs and social isolation, and its impact on our socially distant, working from home staff was palpable. David's advice has helped us to maintain our morale and embrace humor to engage both employees and clients. Even in today's world, humor can be a powerful tool in the workplace and David's Lead With Laughs presentation was not only highly effective, but incredibly timely." - Rob Mayes - Greater Ann Arbor SHRM
