I Don't Give Lectures...

I Give Experiences.

What's the difference?  You attend a typical lecture and leave with information. Like the sugary spike that you receive from wolfing down a candy bar—the high is short-lived.


BUT an experience is something different  altogether. An experience equates to change; it's meat that sticks to your ribs; substance beyond information that forces you to think critically and take action.


I don't give lectures. I give experiences.



Dr. Carter is available for travel to all U.S. and international locations and has "experiences" prepared for audiences of various interests.


Presentations and training materials are created specifically for the needs of your organization.

Dr. Carter's presentation for KSAE was engaging and inspiring.  Participants continued to discuss his thoughts on leadership for the rest of the conference and found his take-aways to be valuable and thought provoking.

Advisors Excel

We hired Dr. Carter to speak to our employees, with high hopes that he would come into Advisors Excel and rock the house. He did not disappoint. His speaking style is high energy, relevant, and challenging and our entire team, over 400 employees, thoroughly enjoyed his keynote. He took a drab topic like Business Ethics, spiced it up by giving the workshop an aerospace theme, and then topped it all off by showing up and presenting wearing his flight suit! Dr. Carter is a true class act! He is an accomplished individual who brings his topics to life in a brilliant motivating, and relatable way.

Best speaker I have ever hired!

I recently attended Dr. Carter’s presentation at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas regarding rusting out or burning out. I found the presentation very enlightening and took away quite a few ideas that will help me with my day to day activities.

The hospitality shown to us by David Carter for my performance in Beverly Hills was like royalty. We absolutely enjoyed our rich conversations, our beautiful accommodations and our travel to and from Beverly Hills (traveling seems glamorous on social media but it really isn't always glamorous) but David made it so.



After working with

Dr. Carter I have more of a team focus, more on the results of the business, and my team has taken significantly more ownership.

I highly recommend Dr. David W. Carter. He was recommended by some university partners that we work with and he did our opening session our Student Leadership Conference. He was FANTASTIC! I can’t say enough good things about him.
