Dave Gamache

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.  Dave looks forward to working with your school, organization or special event to bring humor, passion and genuine transformation through his powerful enterTRAINment presentations and workshops.  

Dave Gamache Is absolutely one of the most gifted presenters, trainers and motivational speakers on the planet. He is a man of integrity and character which can be observed in all his relationships. I would put Dave up against any professional seminar leader in America today and he would excel with his inspiration, animation and energy. I view him in the top 5% of national and international speakers today.

Dave Gamache is a professional speaker with a heart as big as his character is strong. Dave's diversity is amazing. I've seen him hold the attention of a thousand high school students and do the same thing for business and community leaders. His sincerity coupled with his depth of knowledge of his clients and his material along with his amazing humor make him a sure fit for most any audience. Having worked closely with Zig Ziglar for over twenty years I know the importance of doing your homework and making every presentation the most important of your career. Dave Gamache is amazing.

Bill Sanders, Author, Professional Speaker and Trainer, MI

Dave Gamache has a gift for engaging audiences of all ages through his unique blend of humor, genuineness, and charisma. He connects well with groups of all sizes and has the ability to make you feel like he is speaking wisdom directly to you even when you are surrounded by hundreds of other audience members who are all feeling the same way.

Brad Nye, Assistant High School Principal, CO

Dave weaves stories that capture the audience and delivers messages as strong as any speaker I have ever seen in 37 years in education. I believe he connects with any audience because it is apparent that he genuinely cares and can therefore take any audience to a place of emotion and passion. He is one of the most honest and sincere people I know. He LIVES his message, his words resonate and his delivery is inspiring. I heartily recommend Dave Gamache as a presenter for any organization that would like to experience a program that will impact.
