Youth motivational speaker David Flood has been speaking with and helping teens and young adults for over 20 years. He teaches teens through the telling of his own very personal stories about his family in the past and present. 

At David’s student assembly programs he uses simple examples that students can relate to in order to show them how to improve their lives and how to have a profound impact on those around them.  David will reinforce any social and emotional learning (SEL) that your school is already providing.  He believes in proactive emotional literacy to encourage dignity and respect throughout the building. It is for this reason that he has spoken in over 600 hundred middle schools and high schools as well as leadership conferences, parent workshops, and professional development days for teachers. 

He’s been a featured speaker at middle school assemblies, high school assemblies,  colleges, and teacher/counselor conferences throughout the United States and Canada and established himself as a national youth motivational speaker that students connect with on an emotional level.  David is one of the best youth motivational speakers in the country today.

David Flood from Top Youth Speakers is incredible! He is funny, engaging, compassionate, and brilliant! He knew exactly how to connect with our students and certainly left his mark! He gave us important take-away points that we will never forget and have already implemented here at our school! -Kelsie S., Aaron School, NYC



“David Flood demonstrates empathy and compassion through everything he says and does. Our students were captivated by his story and loved the opportunity to share their thoughts with him in the classrooms later. He connected with the students in a genuine and natural way both on stage and in the classrooms. This experience was great, from start to finish.”
