Book David to speak at your event: 972-897-0156

Who he is – speaker, author, father

David speaks to hospitals, corporations, medical associations, churches, nonprofits and civic groups on HELP – whether it is one-on-one helping a friend whose child is hospitalized, or philanthropically when supporting an effort to help a group of people in need.  His inspiring stories and engaging style empower organizations to become more impactful with service to customers and teamwork with employees, creating more meaning in their daily work.  The lessons taught extend to work, home and anywhere relationships matter.

David Cary, his wife, Valerie, and their son, Trenton, have two decades of pediatric hospital experience from the standpoint of the “customer.”  Trenton received a heart transplant just before his first birthday; he was diagnosed with cancer during his senior year of high school; and he had a second heart transplant while in college.  Over those years, David and his family learned to navigate the hospital, survive trauma, deal with challenges and find gratitude with help from a strong support group.

What he explains to audiences

“How to help” – Building a stronger support group of family, friends and colleagues before and when you need it.

“Three life or death lessons” – Lessons you’ve heard like you’ve never heard them, but need to.

“The intersection of Philanthropy and Entrepreneurship” – increase the impact of both when they help each other.
