"David, Mike and Liz did a wonderful job catering to our various demographics to make the experience more fun and relatable for all guests. Some of the jokes will definitely be the talk of the town at our company for a quite a while. I definitely recommend these folks for business and personal events. Special thanks to David, for coming in advance to set up, for being patient with our slightly floating event schedule and making sure that everything ran smoothly."
NADIA / OHIO LUMEX COMPANY
"I cannot thank you enough. The show was better than I could've imagined."
MARK / PRIVATE BIRTHDAY PARTY
"David's humor and knowledge is an awesome blend! All I heard over and over is how powerful he was for an opening keynote and so many appreciated his energy."
KRISTEN / CONSUMER'S CREDIT UNION
"David's energy filled up the room and made me want to go back to work and be the sunshine in my office."
STACEY / NORTHERN UTAH HR ASSOCIATION
"David came to speak in March of 2020. I had no idea how much I would rely on his advice in the months that followed. COVID 19 struck the country with state-wide lock downs and social isolation, and its impact on our socially distant, working from home staff was palpable. David's advice has helped us to maintain our morale and embrace humor to engage both employees and clients. Even in today's world, humor can be a powerful tool in the workplace and David's Lead With Laughs presentation was not only highly effective, but incredibly timely."
ROB / GREATER ANN ARBOR SHRM
"David helped to make the virtual last day of our closing program entertaining, special and created many moments of fun and laughter. David brings a message of hilarity through everyday happenings along with tying it to leadership moments. The idea that at times, you need to just laugh at yourself truly hit home for many of the class members as the last months have been so different."
STEPHANIE / DIRECTOR - LEADERSHIP STARK
David's message on humor in the workplace is more important now than ever. His presentation is fun and enlightening and the perfect way to end a three day conference - on a high note! We've received rave reviews for David's session. I recommend you consider adding his combination of humor and business value to your conference.
ELIZABETH / DELAWARE SHRM STATE CONFERENCE
"Not the type of presentation I thought it would be - surprisingly more
relevant. A refreshingly unusual topic that ties in perfectly with where HR
and companies need to shift. Great presentation and speaker. "
SURVEY RESPONSE / KENTUCKY SHRM STATE CONFERENCE
"David was extremely relevant and relatable in his humor. He gave excellent advice and tips on how to keep things light in the workplace - by building moral and better relationships. Would recommend him for any work/networking event."
ALEX / CANAL FULTON CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
"David is an engaging and charismatic presenter. Humor in the workplace is a very necessary and relatable topic given the difficult 2020 and start of 2021 year."
CONNIE / CAPITAL AREA HR ASSOCIATION
"With the increased stress from 2020, David really helped lighten the mood and show how having a skill like humor can be an invaluable tool for engaging employees and inspiring them to think differently. "Think funny first" is a way to protect our mindset and better respond to the new demands we are being faced with in HR. David delivered a great talk, made us laugh, and gave us a few tactical ways to incorporate humor in the workplace."
BRENDAN / HR ASSOCIATION OF GREATER OAK BROOK
"Excessive laughter in the workplace was once an indicator that there must not be enough work, or that employees were messing around rather than working, but thankfully in the modern workplace, that is not the case! David’s program highlights the appropriateness of humor and laughter in the workplace, including its link to happy employees and increased productivity. This program is extremely relevant and also very funny!"
BRAD / BROWN & FORTUNATO, P.C.
"I wholeheartedly recommend David Horning as an engaging, fun, and inspiring speaker. David's approach and insights resonated well with me in both my personal life and the workplace. After an hour and half meeting, I wanted to hear more. We need more positive and fun messages like this. Thanks David!"
DAN / FIRSTMARK CONSTRUCTION
"David was our April keynote speaker and spent time in advance interviewing members to customize the presentation. He shared steps that we could implement immediately in our businesses and organizations."
SUSAN / YELLOWSTONE VALLEY SHRM
"This was our first time going out of the "traditional HR topics", so needless to say we were uncertain how it would work. Our attendance was the highest it had been in a long time and feedback after David's presentation was nothing but positive. David was highly professional to work leading up to, during, and after the event. I'd highly recommend him."
JOSH / RALEIGH METRO SHRM
David was an amazing, accurate fresh breath of air. Loved his humor and was grateful for all the laughs. Never laughed so much during a work call!
SYDNEY / INNISFREE HOTELS
"Wasn't quite certain what I expected, but walked away enlightened and "lightened."
THERESA / PREMIER HEALTH
"David took the time to walk me through some of the challenges I am dealing with and providing some insight on how to improve the communication (with a fellow manager). As fate would have it, an opportunity actually presented itself this afternoon and I was able to work some open ended questions into our conversation. Together, we were able to find a solution and share a virtual high five."
ANONYMOUS / GREATER PENSACOLA SHRM
"Wonderful training session. I think the content was well received, and I enjoyed the time getting to know my colleagues a bit better in our breakaway groups. I think this helped Raganites to connect on a deeper level than a normal workday might allow."
ALYSSA / LAWRENCE RAGAN COMMUNICATIONS
"He's not Kevin Hart funny, but he's good. I really enjoyed the presentation."
CARLA / COMMUNITY ACTION KENTUCKY
"David's presentation was exactly what was needed at the end of a hectic, stressful year. I have been talking about his program with colleagues as a recommendation for building resilience through humor."
