"I plan several events each year for my organization across the country and have worked with numerous motivational speakers, speakers bureaus and agencies. Working with David Atkins was a magical experience in itself. The entire process, from our initial conversations to his keynote speech itself was phenomenal. He took the time to learn about our company, our mission, overall objective of our meeting and more. He then tailored his dynamic message specifically to our audience to where you felt he was a part of your company. Our attendees were mesmerized and hung onto his every word. He was relevant, empathetic, motivational and really connected with our audience. He made himself available to our group the entire time he was with us even serving as a guest judge for our team building event. If you are looking for an exceptional speaker to work with who will impact your organization, leave a lasting impression and who is also great to work with, look no further than David Atkins… there is NO EXCUSE."
"We had David speak at our annual kick-off meeting this past January 2023. He was outstanding and provides real-life stories that correlate with success in the business world. He is captivating when he speaks and knows how to hold an audience’s attention. I especially liked how the themes that are important to us, were incorporated into his presentation. I highly recommend using David at your next corporate event!"

"David Atkins was a tremendous asset to our Annual Conference! From our first conversation, David was responsive, easy to work with, and personable. In addition, Mr. Atkins took the time to learn more about our organization and its members even meeting with our leadership to deepen his understanding of his audience. During his presentation, David was personable and kept our interest the entire time. Our group left feeling motivated and energized and excuse free."
"Each year we have an appreciation banquet for customers and their spouses. One of the highlights of the event is to have a featured speaker that brings meaningful insight to the audience. This year we had David Atkins speak and he knocked it out of the park. He shared his story about being with the New York State Police, and how that helped mold his perspective on life. The impact his message had on everyone was both inspiring and emotional. I have listened to many speakers throughout my career that were impressive, but David has a unique gift because he impacts the audience in a way that is truly life changing. It was an honor getting to know David. He definitely has the "Wow" factor."
"I had the pleasure of hearing David speak at the New York Staffing Association Leadership and Growth Summit. All I can say is WOW. If you ever had any doubt about what is important in life and business, you must hear David. His personal experiences coupled with his energy makes you realize you can do anything!"
"I had the pleasure of bringing David to the Massachusetts Staffing Association Annual Conference as our keynote speaker. He opened the day with a powerful presentation filled with passion, energy and emotion that everyone in the audience could feel. If you are looking for a speaker who can really engage with your audience, I would recommend connecting with David. His story really was just as unforgettable as his delivery!"
"As one with prior law enforcement experience and still connected to the First Responder community via Fund the First and the Fallen First Reserve, David is the real deal……… Every once in a while someone touches your heart and soul, that someone was David Atkins. Last week, Acentria Insurance engaged David to be one of our key speakers at our annual sales event at the JW Marriott in Orlando, FL; we had approximately 500 team members at the conference and you could hear a pin drop within just a few moments of his presentation. Let me start by saying David is new to the speaking circuit, but you would never know it. Engaging us with meaningful words, while his stage presence was off-the-charts. You could not only hear David, you could feel the enormity of what he was saying and the meaning behind his experiences. There wasn’t a dry-eye around me, but more importantly, we all walked away feeling enlightened, knowing you just were a part of something special; David’s life story!"
"We had David speak at our conference as our opening keynote. He was passionate and his story was so amazing for our members!!! Everyone left his session inspired and wanting to make a difference in their lives!!!"
