David Mead Speaker Profile:

David Mead envisions a world in which people thrive and find lasting fulfillment in the work they do. He wakes up everyday to propel himself and others toward that ideal. He began his career in corporate training in 2004. From 2009 to 2019 he worked with author and thought leader Simon Sinek. As the first of Simon’s “Igniters”, David helped share Simon’s simple, inspiring ideas through speaking and workshops to over 225 companies on 5 continents.

In 2017, David took his years of practical experience and learning and co-authored, with Peter Docker and Simon Sinek, Find Your Why: a practical guide for discovering the WHY of an individual, team or organization. It has sold over 300,000 copies and is translated into 25 different languages.

In December 2019, David stepped away from Simon’s team to focus his energy on long-term consulting in leadership and culture. David believes that these elements of an organization are vital to long-term progress. He brings a straightforward, human approach to his sessions that helps people connect with simple ideas and create positive change for themselves and those around them.

David earned an MBA in 2011. While going through the program, he realized that much of what he was learning was responsible for the poor leadership he had experienced at different times throughout his career. He concentrated his course work on Organizational Development as much as possible in order to be better equipped to help leaders create environments where people thrive and do meaningful work. And from David’s experience, that ends up being great for the business too!

David is based in Salt Lake City, UT, where a loving wife and two kids can’t wait for him to come home.
