What People Say

After struggling to grow profitably for a number of years I started working with Dave. Now our team is so highly energized that problem solving and process improvement is ingrained in our culture. Everyone is happier, motivated, and fully engaged which means our leadership team can spend its time on continuous, profitable, growth.

“I just got done listening to Locked On Leadership.  It was a tremendous experience for me.  Being brilliant in the basics is so important [for] a company to understand the people, making sure you reward them, you know how to discipline them.”

~ Paul Schiermeier, PMI-SD

“We just had Dave speak at our event here in Palm Springs.  There’s a lot of business leaders here and they really took a lot from his message. I saw a lot of good body language. They were motivated. He really keyed in on leadership and all the key tenants and I think everybody walked away saying I took something from Dave’s message and I’m going to be a better leader when I get back to my company and my organization. So [I] really appreciate having him and had a great time.”

~ Brian Rigney, President, Tire Industry Association

“I loved it! Great message how we need to use leadership to thoughtfully manage our behaviors during any Crisis/Change to positively calm, guide, and inspire our people. I also liked the great reminder that when there is a crisis, or Big Change, we need to contact our customers and ask them how they are, how we can help, and look for opportunities we didn’t know were available to us to add value. You have a great delivery style and your opening stories establish trust and confidence that you’ve lived Change Management where the consequences are much more than losing a customer or disappointing shareholders.”

~ Barry Ramsay, Barry Ramsay Consulting

“”From the outset, Dave Rosenberg was a true pleasure to work with for his scheduled workshop session at DHI conNextions Conference & Expo 2020. He exemplifies the organizational leadership qualities he speaks to during his session. Dave took the time to understand what keeps our target audience up at night. He takes a top-down to down-top approach to his lessons of leadership and how to better utilize inherent and learned leadership approaches to move business forward regardless of your title in an organization. When our conference went from live to virtual in 2020, like a true leader, Dave met the challenge. Our audience appreciated the two-part virtual workshop and its takeaways, as well as receiving Dave’s book Locked on Leadership as a follow up. Highly recommend Dave for all types of summits and conferences with a focus on business management, especially post-COVID.”

~Joyceann Garippa, Conference & Education Manager, DHI conNextions

“Dave is a no nonsense business coach that has given us a lot of tools, guidance, and advice that has taken our businesses to a higher level.  He has a wealth of knowledge and experience in business and has done an amazing job passing that on to our leadership team.   What Dave teaches is real world and is not something you’re going to get from Harvard or another academic institution.   If you are truly interested in being accountable, putting in the work, and elevating your business, Dave is your guy.”

~Sean J. Kennedy, President, SBK Enterprises & Koen Enterprises

“This guy was a pro, and the 45 minutes he spoke went by quickly. It brought new questions to mind for myself personally about leadership through RTA, what it takes when personal responsibility is a primary factor, and new directions that could be applied to our association. Well done.”

~ Jeffrey Parks, Managing Director Retread Tire Association

“I found your presentation to be riveting and really brought home the message of plan, plan, plan!”

~ Shawna Kelly, CGA, Education Coordinator & Customer Service Representative, NACM Commercial Services

““…after seeing a room full of Contractors and Manufacturers get on their feet seconds later, you know without a doubt that hiring Dave was a success.  His session and content was engaging and relevant to literally everyone in the room…  Dave’s was one of the most talked about sessions of the Conference, including positive reviews from those who are known for being a “hard sell”.  From start to finish, Dave was an absolute pleasure to work with, and we have the utmost confidence in referring him to other groups looking for a dynamic and engaging Keynote session to motivate your people”

~ Lindsey Dutkiewicz, Associate Director, Firestop Contractors International Association

“When planning the PMI Aspiring Leaders Program, Dave was always very responsive and asked great questions to understand more about our target audience and the program. During the program, Dave seamlessly incorporated the history of the location where we were holding the program (the USS Midway) as well as our participants’ backgrounds throughout his workshop. Dave was a fantastic fit for this program!”

~ Stephanie Lass, Education Coordinator, Plumbing Manufacturers International

“Dave was easy to work with from Day 1, and he really committed to understanding our audience prior to our conference… Once he was on stage, he engaged with our attendees and kept everyone’s attention. The other thing I really loved about Dave’s presentation is that it wasn’t just a step-by-step recitation of a process. He presented it as a story, and each part of the story connected to a lesson he learned and applied in his own life. Dave is a captivating storyteller who offers actionable advice, and I would highly recommend him for your next event.”

~ Melanie Moul, Managing Editor, North American Hardware & Paint Association
