6 KEY Things to Know ABOUT Dave
The Dave Fleming Saga
Dave Fleming is one of the top speakers, emcees and corporate trainers in the country. He oozes passion on stage. He is a workplace expert who is committed to helping individuals and companies create more rewarding offices.
He’s also funny. He was voted the #2 corporate comedian in America by CBS News. His humor is unique and universally appealing to those living the cubicle life. His pinpoint portrayal of the challenges we all face at the office has resulted in him being described as the “Jerry Seinfeld of the office.” Dave translates his humorous observations into ideas and tips that can be immediately put to use when his audiences return to their workplaces.
Since Dave was 10 years old, he has displayed his passion for life. Here’s what Billie Jean King said in a newspaper interview after a tennis clinic she held in Albuquerque, NM:
" I love this guy. He is my kind of kid," she said of a boy wearing a Pittsburgh Pirate baseball hat. The little guy ran down everything. Billie hit. "He is going to make it in life, some way, somehow."
What a humbling quote from a Hall of Fame athlete. That moment was a microcosm of Dave’s life. A love of tennis, an intense loyalty for Pittsburgh sports teams, and relentless energy. The same energy and enthusiasm Billie Jean saw from that ten-year-old tennis player is what Dave brings to his speaking and training clients today.
Dave started his journey of entertaining corporate groups in Orlando. He hosted game shows and award shows at Disney properties, resorts, and theme parks. And he even designed games for Disney guests to play while waiting in line. He dubbed this Q Crew and it was a big success for Disney as they rarely allow “outsiders” to interact with their beloved guests. But Q Crew helped them alleviate the number one problem at the theme parks – waiting in line. This passion for creative problem solving has served Dave well throughout his career.
Dave has also been analyzing consumer behavior, having worked for over 20 years as an expert marketer for companies like Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Pizza Hut, and Delta Dental. With that keen eye, he sees the workplace unlike anyone else on the planet. He’s passionate about improving the human dynamic. He thinks conference calls are hilarious. And don’t get him started on recall emails.
Dave’s humor-filled speeches and training programs are designed to provide instant impact. He wants his audience to LAUGH, LEARN, and then take those ideas and go LEAD change back at the office.
Dave's first book Inside the Cubicle: Discover What Really Affects Workplace Morale and Productivity was published in 2013. This book shows individuals and organizations how simple changes can deliver big results. Put a chocolate chip cookie in every box lunch and productivity at that meeting WILL increase, guaranteed.
Dave is also doing commercial work these days. He recently appeared in a promo for Dallas, TX Channel 21’s fall comedy lineup.
Last and so certainly not least, Dave’s family is everything to him. He has a beautiful wife (the Lovely Deb Fleming) and two terrific daughters. You will find them all laughing together in Frisco, TX, a suburb of Dallas.
DO NOT READ BELOW THIS LINE
A lot of people write ridiculous sentences on their websites using the same words over and over so it attracts the search engine spiders (or whatever insect they are using these days). And it is ridiculous for you, the reader, to have to put up with that. So, I am putting all of that stuff down here where I told you not to read it. Are you seriously still reading about me, the humorous motivational speaker who does corporate training, emcees, and is a corporate comedian? You can’t seriously still be reading about the corporate keynote speaker who is committed to improve office morale, conduct new manager training and emcee corporate award shows? This humorous keynote speaker (or funny keynote speaker if you don’t like the word humorous because you had a bad experience with that word back in 2003) is also a management speaker (some call him a business keynotes speaker too when he starts to describe ways to improve employee morale. Please tell me you are not still reading this. Please STOP. I am here for you and this is only for the computerized arachnids. Clean corporate comedians should be relevant and you should laugh out loud. When you think back to that Dallas speaker, or Texas speaker as you know you were somewhere in the state, you will remember that guy for a long time and things I see in your office that will trigger his speech. Dave Fleming is one of the best keynote speakers, a truly great keynote speaker, or said another way one of the top keynote speakers. And if you need a convention keynote speaker or a marketing keynote speaker, or better yet a leadership keynote speaker, go ahead and plan on an increase in morale at your company. And new managers and new employees deserve better new manager training and new hire orientation videos and workshops, which will result in improved morale. And what improves morale better than teambuilding, specifically corporate teambuilding, with a terrific, funny, corporate emcee named Dave Fleming who wrote the book Inside the Cubicle. I hope you don’t read this sentence because that means you put up with this entire paragraph. If you did, thanks. I had fun writing it. Hope the 8 leggeds find it equally engaging and helpful.
