To really know David Posen, author, speaker, physician, athlete, musician and family man, imagine an adventurer who regularly stops to chat with people along his travels – to observe and, most of all, to listen and learn.
There are talkers and there are listeners. David is both: an interesting talker and a keenly interested listener. As a speaker, David has enthralled and compelled corporate and professional audiences across North America.
David’s ability to listen – to his patients, audiences, colleagues, friends and even himself – has resulted in three best selling, Always Change a Losing Game, Staying Afloat When The Water Gets Rough, which went into a second printing after only five weeks of its release in September 1998. His most recent work Is Work Killing You.
David makes every keynote, conference address, convention workshop, or executive retreat a memorable experience.
Befitting an adventurer, David worked on a research project in San Francisco before graduating from the University of Toronto Medical School in 1967. He then interned in Edmonton, Alberta and practiced in the Canadian Arctic and Jerusalem before settling in Oakville, Ontario in 1971.
More than a decade into a highly successful family practice, David changed his game plan to focus on stress management and lifestyle counselling. Along the way, his buoyant approach to life’s challenges has helped countless people stay afloat!
