    David Mead Speaker Biography

    Leadership speaker David Mead helps individual leaders, teams, and organizations re-discover their deepest sources of workplace inspiration. As a keynote speaker, David Mead has addressed hundreds of organizations on five continents. From retail to fintech, government to athletics, audiences from every major industry have benefitted from Mead’s engaging, inspiring talks.

    David Mead envisions a world in which every job is fulfilling and every employee finds purpose in their work. As a consultant, speaker, and bestselling author, he helps individuals, teams, and organizations succeed through what he terms Human Leadership. Leaders, Mead stresses, must strive to be better for the people they lead, not better than them.

    After a successful career in corporate training, Mead returned to school for his MBA with a concentration on organizational development. His academic training seemed to support what Mead saw as a limiting and ineffective model of leadership. Leadership expert Simon Sinek confirmed Mead’s suspicions when the two met, and Mead joined Sinek’s team as a trainer.

    Mead spent two years developing content around Sinek’s concept of the Golden Circle. In 2012, he also began leading workshops dedicated to the same idea. He also began to speak at conferences and corporate events, helping people in any way possible to change their notions of leadership and workplace culture.

    His bestselling book Find Your Why, co-written with Sinek and Peter Docker, distills Mead’s years of research and practical experience. It presents a step-by-step guide to re-discovering individual purpose and helping entire teams do the same.

    Mead is now CEO of Propel, Inc., a consultancy that helps leaders and organizations build cultures of purpose. After years of research, he finally launched The Human Leadership Course, a comprehensive workshop dedicated to honest, humble, human leadership skills.
