Dave's Keynote was Different from Traditional Speeches and Self-Help Ra-Ra
"The keynote speech that Dave Ferguson delivered at our VDT/SDT Association convention was truly refreshing. Dave delivered something different than the traditional motivational speeches and self-help ra-ra which is usually forgotten a few hours later. His keynote speech really set the stage for proactive changes that start at the individual level, outlining how entrepreneurs and business people need to take an active role in writing their own legacy. I hope to hear Dave speak again sometime very soon.”
I highly recommend The Leader's Ladder Workshop
I recently attended The Leader's Ladder Workshop by Dave Ferguson. I walked away with a better understanding of how I can become a better leader. Dave's approach was simple and effective. He presented us with several key points: Finding my Leadeship Values, My Circle of Influence, and how the 6 rungs of the Ladder all affect my leadership style and influence. Dave's real world, practical steps will be easy to follow and implement in both my business and personal life. I highly recommend the workshop for anyone trying to take their skills to the next rung on their leadership ladder.
