CU Director of Strategic Partnerships
Dave Gamache began his speaking career with Monster.com by educating and guiding high school and college students through the college and job selection process. Dave then spent 7 years speaking full time with Rachel’s Challenge programs which gave him the opportunity to share powerful school assembly presentations honoring the first Columbine shooting victim’s life and legacy. Weekly Dave would facilitate small group trainings, speak at state and national conferences, facilitate professional development workshops, as well as deliver messages at community events in front of thousands of adults. Dave was able to genuinely connect with youth at a deep level during this time and realized he had an ability to reach and inspire young people to desire living more meaningful lives as servant leaders. Dave then founded Character University programs to bring his vision of combining unique presentations, powerful life lessons and transformational trainings in order to teach essential leadership and character traits to positively influence young people.
In his 13 years of professional speaking, Dave has shared powerful messages and trainings with more than 1 million people in the U.S. and Canada. He has been a featured keynote presenter at the National School Resource Officers Conference, US Air Force’s National Character Symposium, Louisiana School Boards Association, National PRIDE Youth Conference, CHAMPS Conference, Oklahoma State University’s Vision 2020 Conference, Baltimore County Public School’s Safe Schools Conference, Auburn University Anti-Bullying Summit, HOBY World Leadership Congress (5x), NJCSA Conference, Arkansas State School Board Association Conference, Advancial Annual Corporate Meeting, Wisconsin Principals Conference, West Virginia Principals Association, Virginia School University Partnership Annual Student Leadership Conference and the Utah Association of Secondary Principals.
