"David I just wanted to thank you for your presentation, "Becoming An Extraordinary Leader," that you gave to our employees last week at our biennial company meeting. This was a very beneficial and timely topic for our organization, and I trust that everyone was able to take away some helpful information regarding identifying goals, setting a timeline, and meeting those goals, either personally or professionally, or both. Like two years ago, we heard many positive comments about your session. It's my hope that we each take action on the "six C's" to becoming an extraordinary leader."

"David Bush recently made two presentations for the Mason City Area Chamber of Commerce. He met with our high school youth leadership group in the morning, and provided the keynote address for a chamber luncheon. David was terrific!
Most importantly, his blend of humor and life lessons was a perfect fit for our events. Clearly, David understands the special challenges facing Iowans and his self-deprecating humor immediately puts the audience at ease. I highly recommend him as a speaker!"

"Our highway chapter invited David to speak at our annual convention this past February – as the Opening Session/Keynote Speaker. Our members were very impressed with his presentation, as it was not only upbeat, but something many in the audience could relate to. We had a lot of individuals stick around and talk directly with David after the session; which is a positive indication that he grabbed their attention. He got our convention off to a great start with his inspiring stories, and I feel confident your members would say the same if you have him at your event!"

To raise a mediocre meeting to good, a good meeting to great, and a great meeting to magical. To be so good that the audience will forget other small problems that may have happened at that meeting. To be invited back by popular demand.

To get them to say, "This is the best speaker I've ever heard."

To get additional information about the client and its key people to feed back to the bureau for future business and additional business relationships with that client. To seek out additional business opportunities for the bureau and to get more business together.
