Dave Davlin

Wednesday, December 4

Professional Speaker Dave Davlin will present his keynote address, “The Game-Winning 3,” at the Wednesday General Session on Dec. 4 at the IAFE Convention.
 

Over 25 years ago, Davlin began bringing smiles to faces with a form of entertainment he developed as a young boy. From NBA and major college arenas across America to the Summer Olympic Games in Seoul, South Korea, “Travelin’” Davlin has entertained people of every age and background. His amazing ability with basketballs even landed his name and picture in the 1990 Guinness Book of World Records.
 

Davlin began to hone his speaking skills in the early 90s as a national speaker in the public schools across America. Combining his entertainment ability with a powerful message, he was instrumental in the fight for education and against drugs. At the advice of friends working in corporate America, he began to develop presentations for the corporate and association market and the rest is history. He now speaks at numerous corporate and association conferences each year. From public school students to CEOs, Davlin’s message has made a difference in the lives of thousands, and his impact continues to grow each year as he shares his philosophy and wisdom through speaking and writing.
 

In “The Game-Winning 3,” Davlin explains that success can be defined in its simplest form as making life better for someone else. Whether it comes in creating a better product, helping to relieve someone’s stress or pain, bringing someone laughter or joy or helping someone get more out of their life, success is always about serving.
In his presentation, Davlin will share three essential ingredients for developing a purpose-driven mentality to achieve a fulfilling career and balanced life. Look for interaction, humor, and audience participation mixed with a powerful message.
