How to Win the Competition for Top Talent
One of the greatest challenges facing employers today is talent recruitment and retention.  For the first time in history, there are more job openings than there are job applicants to fill them.  The competition for top talent is tough and the cost of employee turnover is staggering.  Using a combination of historical facts, stories, and statistics, David wows his audience with a completely new solution to solving this enormous challenge.  Attendees learn exactly what they can do to retain their best people long-term, and acquire new top talent as they need it.


How to Build a World-class Organization

The difference between a world-class organization and a mediocre organization is the people who work there.  David shows employers how to acquire the absolute best talent in any industry.

The fact is most highly-paid employees cannot afford to retire.  Employers offering  Supplemental Executive Retirement Plans (SERPS) can attract the highly-skilled employees they need.  By attaching a long-term vesting period to the SERP the employees will stay long-term.  The plans are fully discriminatory and are only offered to the top performers.  As other employees leave the organization, the plans are used to attract only the best talent.  Over time, the organization will be filled with only the best of the best employees.

How to Think Like a Champion and Win

Overcoming challenges is easier when you have the right "mindset".  Winners and losers each have a distinctly different way of thinking.  David uses NLP's science of modeling to teach audiences how to think like champions.    By copying the thinking patterns of champions, anyone can see positive results in their work and their personal lives.  Imagine what happens in an organization when all the employees think like winners.
