He has done an outstanding job with conveying his inspirational Olympic dream to a reality story to our audience. The principals he speaks on transcends the swimming pool to everyday common application from youth groups to board rooms to client appreciation events.

"As an American Record holder and multiple Olympic Gold medalist, Josh Davis' competitive performances are well documented. His greatest contributions to the success of the USA National Team, however, came outside of the pool. The fact that he was elected Team Captain by his Olympic Team peers is testimony to his strong leadership. Josh Davis was the model leader.he was a fierce competitor, but very respectful of his competitors, officials and coaches; he personified an unselfish "team first" attitude, and was a counselor, mentor and friend to his teammates; he energized the team with his positive attitude, but was humble in victory and gracious in defeat. In short, Josh Davis was a great ambassador for the USA Team and the sport of swimming throughout his national team career."

"Josh's speech was very moving, brought tears to my eyes on several occasions.  You can feel that he wasn't speaking to sell anything to anyone, just to instill the value of self assurance and happiness.  He inspired me to push harder, think outside the box and about other people's feelings a little more.  On a personal level, I took a lot of his comments to heart.  How just one sentence can change someone's life! "You can do it, or I believe in you or simply, I'm proud of you..."

Delivered. In a relaxed and non-intimidating manner, Josh Davis carried the theme of our conference in his message for us to develop the (tax) Olympian within ourselves.  Josh Davis was a welcome breath of fresh air after hours of technical business presentations."
