"Mr. Davis provided an outstanding presentation during our annual year end event. I assure you that you have never experienced a motivational presentation quite like his. It was fun, entertaining, exciting, and inspirational. If you are in need of a keynote speaker and you do not hire him, you are doing yourself a disservice. It was an absolute pleasure for our company to have him at our event."
~Rusty Campbell, CLEAResult
Having John speak for us was a blast! He was very accommodating while we were in the planning stages, and on the day of he made sure to come say hi bright and early. John's humor (he's a very funny guy!) combined with his audience participation and talent for relating to everyone really set a positive tone for our quality conference and helped loosen everyone up. I highly recommend John Davis, he will leave everyone excited and talking about his speech for the rest of the day.
