    David Mead Speaker Biography

    David is committed to a world in which the vast majority of people wake up inspired to go to work, feel safe while they’re there and go home at the end of the day fulfilled by the work they do. Today, he’s here to share a few simple ideas that are helping to make that world a reality.

    In 2004, he started a career in corporate training. A few years later, while earning an MBA with a focus in Organizational Development, he realized something. What he, and so many other people, were being taught in business school was contributing to the poor leadership he had been enduring for much of his career. In 2009, shortly after beginning his MBA studies, he met, and was inspired by Simon Sinek and his concept of the Golden Circle and was invited to join Simon’s team. He started by developing content to help Simon share his powerful ideas and in 2012 he began speaking and facilitating workshops to help shift people’s perceptions about leadership and culture.

    David has now taken his years of practice and co-authored with Simon, Find Your Why, (2017) a step-by-step, practical guide on how to discover the Why for any individual, team or organization. David is globally recognized as the “How” guy to Simon’s “Why.”

    David  is also the CEO of his own consultancy Propel Inc. which together with “The Start with Why” team holds engaging talks and workshops to help companies and leaders towards a world in which a vast majority of people wake up inspired to go to work, feel safe while they’re there and go home at the end of the day fulfilled by the work that they do.

    David has presented these simple, inspiring ideas on 5 continents to over 150 organizations in a wide range of industries such as athletics, technology, retail, healthcare, finance, government and hospitality. Regardless of the organization’s size, industry or country, David finds that these ideas resonate with those who want to find meaning in what they do and are committed to creating a culture where people come before profit.
