Accelerated Sales and Superior Leadership with Emotional Intelligence

David Ryback has impressed audiences across North America, Europe and Asia with his incisive and intelligent approach. “I myself found your presentation quite enthralling, with all the information on both business and personal aspects of your focus,” writes Dr. Tomascheck, Director of the University of Vienna. “People were literally sitting on the edge of their seats during much of the presentation … I can highly recommend your talks to any organization.”

David is the author of seven books, including Putting Emotional Intelligence to Work: Successful Leadership is More than IQ (Butterworth-Heinemann), ConnectAbility: 8 Keys to Building Strong Partnerships with Your Colleagues and Your Customers (McGraw-Hill), Secrets of a Zen Millionaire (Motivational Press), and Transforming Communication in Leadership and Teamwork (Springer), with translations into French, German, Italian, Chinese, Korean and other languages. David has been a guest speaker on NBC-TV, CNN and countless television and radio stations across the continent and in Europe.


He’s been a keynote presenter to such groups as the Federal National Mortgage Association in Washington, DC; RTM in Atlanta, Ga.; a number of educational organizations such as McGill University and the University of Vienna; and others. As well, he has spoken to Federal government agencies such as the U.S. Treasury Dept., the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Treasury Dept.; and industrial and educational groups in Montreal, Canada; Monterrey, Mexico; Valencia, Spain; Nuremberg, Germany; Milan, Italy; Oslo, Norway; Tel Aviv, Israel; Bangkok, Thailand; and Tokyo, Japan.   He made a presentation on platform excellence to the annual convention of the National Speakers Association in San Diego.
