About Keynote Speaker David Mead

David is committed to a world in which the vast majority of people wake up inspired to go to work, feel safe while they’re there and go home at the end of the day fulfilled by the work they do. Today, he’s here to share a few simple ideas that are helping to make that world a reality.

In 2004, he started a career in corporate training. A few years later, while earning an MBA with a focus in Organizational Development, he realized something. What he, and so many other people, were being taught in business school was contributing to the poor leadership he had been enduring for much of his career. In 2009, shortly after beginning his MBA studies, he met, and was inspired by Simon Sinek and his concept of the Golden Circle and was invited to join Simon’s team. He started by developing content to help Simon share his powerful ideas and in 2012 he began speaking and facilitating workshops to help shift people’s perceptions about leadership and culture.

David has taken his years of practical experience and co-authored with Simon Sinek and Peter Docker, Find Your Why: A Practical Guide for Discovering Purpose for You and Your Team, a step-by-step guide on how to discover your WHY, published September 2017. David is globally recognized as the “How” guy to Simon’s “Why.” David has presented these simple, inspiring ideas on 5 continents to over 150 organizations in a wide range of industries such as athletics, technology, retail, healthcare, finance, government and hospitality.

Regardless of the organization’s size, industry or country, David finds that these ideas resonate with those who want to find meaning in what they do and are committed to creating a culture where people come before profit.

Testimonials

David, thank you for making our event a tremendous success. You mesmerized our audience with your thought-provoking, in-depth presentation of WHY.

We so loved David’s presentation! The initial reviews I have received were all positive. He did an excellent job instilling energy and getting everyone excited about our Why.

President and CEO, Alabama Telco Credit Union

Walking our senior management through the ‘Start With Why’ discipline was invaluable. The true benefits of your session won’t truly be felt in total for some time, but the important gestation period has begun. You successfully engaged our group in a re-evaluation of why our company exists. This is particularly relevant now, as we have undergone significant change recently due to new leadership, acquisitions and partnerships that have transformed us into a global force. The power of how a personal Why fits, or does not fit, with a departmental or corporate Why will undoubtedly lead our associates on a path toward greater satisfaction in their careers.
