David Brooks

Keynote Speaker

David Brooks


David Brooks is an award-winning professional speaker and trainer who has taught nearly 100,000 business professionals to speak and write clearly, concisely, and confidently.

For three consecutive years David was the top-rated trainer with an international seminar company, and he has spoken extensively across the U.S. and Canada, and in Puerto Rico, Ireland, Sweden, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, the Bahamas, the Philippines, Thailand, Taiwan, Singapore, Bahrain, Oman, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, India and Sri Lanka.

In addition to his teaching, writing, and training skills, his skill as a public speaker has been even more prominently recognized. In 1990 he emerged from a field of more than 25,000 competitors to become the Toastmasters World Champion of Public Speaking.

Since then, he has taught, coached, and mentored seven subsequent World Champions and dozens of finalists. He has been published in national magazines, and has appeared on nationwide television and radio broadcasts in the U.S., Canada, Taiwan, Oman, Australia and Sri Lanka. He was also once featured in a segment on National Public Radio.

He is the co-author of The Seven Strategies of Master Presenters, and he has also produced three audio CD learning programs: Elements of Eloquence, Speaking Secrets of the Champions, and Connect With Any Audience, and two DVDs to teach better speaking skills.
