My friend Dave Howlett is one of those speakers you remember years after you hear him present. A former naval officer, scuba instructor and sales manager, Dave is the founder of (check it out here). As such he offers inspirational seminars that encourage people to "do the right thing" for themselves, their organizations and their families. (He's also an Ironman and a marathon runner. Whew.)

I don't want to give away Dave's explanation of first-, second- and third-gear behaviour. Trust me: it's a metaphor you'll remember and think about daily.

If you're in the Toronto area, please think about starting the year right by attending Dave's evening on "How to connect (like a real human being)" on January 18, 2011 at 7 p.m. Register here. Bonus: Dave will make you laugh and offer you a terrific networking opportunity too.
