Dave produces large-scale global events for non-profits, magazines, and independent conference companies, creating profitable forums for education, networking, and member engagement. He has experience with all aspects of conference production including program research; speaker outreach and management; copywriting; sponsorship sales; audience development; on-site logistics; and hosting live events and webcasts.
Dave lives in Westchester NY with his wife, son, and daughter. When he’s not reading or writing, he loves hiking, biking, running, and all sorts of exercise. He plays guitar (or any instrument he can get his hands on) when he gets a chance.

I work directly with companies, non-profits, and publications to organize profitable events that support their marketing or branding programs. I will work with you to create a quality conference program that will mobilize your network, create a revenue stream, and position your company as an industry leader. A robust conference program provides a forum where you can engage with your colleagues and inspire an audience who is seeking to advance their industry knowledge.
I manage every part of the conference production cycle, including:
- Strategic planning and thought leadership for events
- Program development
- Recruiting speakers
- Writing marketing materials
- Building audience
- Overseeing the sponsorship sales process
- Hosting the conference for a seamless onsite experience
This makes it easier for you to attend to the rest of your portfolio because you can rely on me to work independently on new projects.
