“Dave Winfield spoke at our annual sales event for top sales people. He did an excellent job of delivering a motivational message, but also kept it entertaining. We had a broad audience of sales people and their spouses/guests, but Dave engaged everyone with his presentation. He is a fantastic storyteller and he was a great brand ambassador for us at the event”.David Bolio
