Beth A. Davis, VP Business Development Community First Credit Union, Appleton Wisconsin.
Inspiring in any size group.

David Anderson is heartfelt and inspiring in any size group with his message focusing on being the best you can be! David and his executive consulting program can be tailor made for any size group. The Fox Cities Chamber in Appleton Wisconsin, invited him to participate in Cultivate, a business growth series in March 2014 as a break out session speaker. The feedback on the survey by participants were very good and many of the comments were ”wish there had been more time”, “learned some valuable take a ways today”. As a member of the Cultivate advisory team, I would recommend Dave Anderson and his program for any company or business who needs guidance and motivation in getting out of their “business rut!”
