I recently spent a very enjoyable and enlightening morning attending one of Dave’s presentations on overcoming procrastination. Dave presented a very well organized game plan for dealing with this hindrance to productivity. I was amazed at how he was able to pack so much thoroughness into such a condensed summarization of how to attack this problem. His presentation held my interest throughout. I came away not only with a better understanding of the root causes of procrastination, but also with the means to deal with it effectively in both my business and personal life. I can highly recommend Dave on the basis of my personal experience. Time spent attending one of his sessions is time well spent. __Jim O’Rourke, CEO, L J Technologies L.L.C.Jul 18, 2016

I have heard hundreds of educational and motivational speakers over the years, but I am singularly impressed with the talents of Mr. Chapman. He is not only articulate, but he utilizes inflection to keep his audience interested. What truly impresses me is the way that he makes each and every member of the audience feel as if they having a private conversation with Mr. Chapman. That is a truly unique talent. I have since employed Dave as my personal coach. His advice has improved my skills exponentially. Scot BennettJul 10, 2016

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My fees encompass four types of work: Speaking, training, coaching, and webinars. For some of my work I charge a flat fee, sometimes a fee determined by the number of people participating in the program and sometimes an hourly rate. I make every effort to work within my clients' budget and will provide with a detailed quote as soon as I know the specifics of your needs.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to find out what your needs and objectives are to determine if we are a good match for one another. If the skills and programs I offer, as outlined here and in my website, look interesting to you, a telephone conversation followed by a face-to-face meeting are a good idea. Before delivering a talk, I like to visit the location of the event to become familiar with the facilities and the audio-visual resources. This visit also enables me to come up with ideas to make my talk relevant to your organization and your people.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I've been speaking professionally for about twelve years now.
