Testimonials for David Penglase

One of the advisers at the Sydney program had just spent the weekend at an Anthony Robbins event and commented to me that he got more value out of your 45 minute presentation, which is a great reflection on the power of your presentation!

Olivia Sarah-Le Lacheur, Head of National Accounts, CommInsure


I am privileged to meet this country’s most prominent guest speakers. I have to say that few, if any, were able to match the style, delivery and impact of David’s presentation.

Heidi Tamlyn, PR Manager, AM Club Sydney

As the keynote speaker at our Franchise Conference, David was engaging, motivational and entertaining. The feedback we received was more than positive and we were impressed with how his presentation was tailored to our personal needs.

David Penglase's Biography

David Penglase is a masterclass facilitator sharing his proven tips and strategies on how positivity, character and trust relationships impact leadership, sales, customer engagement and every measure of success in our professional and personal lives. Combining real-life humour, the power of story and the latest research from the fascinating field of positive psychology, David 'comfortably disrupts', and inspires people to achieve at their best


For more than 21 years now David continues to be one of Australia's most popular conference speakers. Inducted into Australia's Professional Speakers Hall of Fame, David travels nationally and internationally, working with top tier corporations and associations to deliver his high-energy, high-content and entertaining presentations, that inspire audiences, shift mindsets and change behaviours.


Quite simply, positivity, character and trust matter! In a social media driven world that has the capacity for us all to be more connected than ever before, the real and present danger is the loss of a positive mindset and competency to communicate with others in ways that earn, build and maintain trust - the currency upon which all relationships are built.


Supporting his two decades of conference speaking experience, David has degrees in Business and the Psychology of Adult Learning, an MBA, a Master Degree in Professional Ethics, and is in his final dissertation year in a MSc in Applied Positive Psychology.
