David began his career as an academic, including Ph.D. research at Princeton on Great Awakenings and comparative mysticism. He transitioned from scholarly study to practical application, building movements on behalf of global brands like Volkswagen and writing four books: Disruption Revolution, Empower: How to Co-Create the Future, Red Bull to Buddha, and The Flow of Innovation.
David's travels and workshops spanned over 50 countries, engaging with leading innovators like Seth Godin, Adam Grant, Brad Feld, James Altucher, Rita McGrath, and Alex Osterwalder. His unique dialogue-based methods earned praise from the BBC as "innovating the digital world through traditional teaching."
