Speaking Topics

Change the World
We've all heard the old adage, "perception is reality," which means your world is what you perceive it to be. But what you perceive owes as much to the choices you make as to your senses. Your commitment to joy, your sense of humor, your focus, even your physiology, shapes your perceptions. Consciously making positive choices leads to healthy perceptions about your life, work and relationships. And when you change your perceptions, you change your world.

Less Sress Through Joyfulness
Are you stressed out? Maxed out? Burned out? Have you (or the people around you) lost your joy? Unchecked stress depresses immune function, leads to illness and erodes success. Combing humor and solid research to explore the stress response, Dave provides joyful alternatives for coping successfully and thriving in times of change and challenge.

Healing with Joyfulness and Humor
Laughter doesn't just feel good, it's good for you. Besides providing a release for stress, a sense of humor has also been associated with improved immune function, pain relief, lowered blood pressure and is a proven predictor of longevity. This program presents the healing benefits of humor both for self-care and to minister to the needs of others. Healing Humor is perfect for healthcare audiences or any group interested in healthy living through laughter.

Laughter and Learning
It may seem counterintuitive that emotion, not rational processes, are the key to learning, but that is what brain research shows. In short, negative emotions stimulate limbic response (e.g. fight or flight) while positive emotion enhances cortical alertness. Learn ways to make compassionate humor a useful tool in the learning experience and join your students in enjoying increased learning and lowered stress.
