"I attended a recent webinar where David spoke to a group about leadership. His session was fantastic and well-received. I especially appreciated David's perspective as a former hospital CEO speaking to a group of clinical risk and patient safety leaders. His presentation was a great reminder that we all should lead with love and compassion. Definitely recommend!" - Kathleen Pendleton, MS, MJ, CPHRM, CPPS, Director, Fair and Just Culture
