About the Program:

Description for Opening Keynote:  “The Game-Winning 3” – Making It Count … In Business and In Life Success can be defined in its simplest form as making life better for someone else.  Whether it comes in creating a better product, helping to relieve someone’s stress or pain, bringing someone laughter or joy or helping someone get more out of their life, success is always about serving.  This being the case, the key to success in any business lies not only in the development of great products and services, but more importantly in the development of great people.  In this insightful presentation, Dave Davlin shares three essential ingredients for developing a purpose-driven mentality to achieve a fulfilling career and balanced life.  This presentation is an hour of interaction, humor, and audience participation mixed with a powerful message.  It is a roller coaster ride of emotion that will find the audience engaged in hilarious laughter one moment and brought to tears the next.  The audience will be challenged to make the most of every moment in order to develop themselves personally and professionally while creating value and making a difference in the lives of others.
Description for “Game-Plan” Workshops:
The statement of “Life is difficulty mixed with opportunity” is powerful statement which stands true and applies to all people both professionally and personally.  Therefore, the key to ongoing success and continual improvement is to develop the mindset of both service and survival.  In this workshop, Dave combines the principles of his signature keynote “The Game-Winning 3” with the principles of his keynote “Rebound” to lead the audience down a pathway of both victory and resurgence.  Whether enjoying our own “Game-Winning 3” moments or creating our pathway to “Rebound” from adversity, it is vital to develop an effective “GAME PLAN”.
Description for Keynote:  “ Rebound” – Finding Victory At the End of the Madness
The late Jim Rohn once said, “Life is difficulty mixed with opportunity.”  While most individuals and organizations find it comfortable to thrive in times of opportunity, it requires specialized skills and a specific mindset to be victorious in times of difficulty and change.  In this presentation, Dave connects the “March Madness” created by the 2020 COVID-19 world-wide pandemic with the unexpected changes and challenges that can manifest themselves in conventional business and everyday life.  He reveals seven principles that can lead us to thrive amid uncertainty and to be triumphant in the face of our own March Madness moments.

About the Presenter:

Over 25 years ago, Dave Davlin began bringing smiles to faces with a form of entertainment he developed as a young boy. From NBA and major college arenas across America to the Summer Olympic Games in Seoul, South Korea— and even to the world-famous Branson Strip— “Travelin” Davlin has entertained people of every age and background. His amazing ability with basketballs even landed his name and picture in the 1990 Guinness Book of World Records.
Dave began to hone his speaking skills in the early 90’s as a national speaker in the public schools across America. Combining his entertainment ability with a powerful message, he was instrumental in the fight for education and against drugs. At the advice of friends working in corporate America, Dave began to develop presentations for the corporate and association market and the rest is history. He now speaks at numerous corporate and association conferences each year. From public school students to CEOs, Dave’s message has made a difference in the lives of thousands, and his impact continues to grow each year as he shares his philosophy and wisdom through speaking and writing.
