Dave became the last person off of the back of the plane that day, and was largely responsible for making sure so many others made it out safely. An inspiring survivor, Dave was an ordinary person in an extraordinary situation. Sharing the lessons of that day with audiences around the country, he shows that in any circumstance, positive thinking and leadership can turn anyone into a hero. Dave speaks about and teaches the lessons and strategies he employed during his experience with the “12 Pillars of Resourcefulness” that helped him not only survive the plane crash but helped him be a top producer in some of the largest sales organizations in the world. In addition to speaking, Dave conducts workshops and team mentoring.   Gene Kelly - Author of The College Myth and CEO of the Advanced Technical Training Institute [caption id="attachment_16523" align="alignright" width="123"] Gene Kelly[/caption] Gene Kelly is a successful businessman and serial entrepreneur.
