Audience Reviews:

"David Wenzel is a gifted speaker and powerful storyteller. His message of kindness, strength, personal growth, and inspiration will no doubt reverberate throughout our school. It is my hope that as many people as possible hear his message, and I strongly recommend utilizing his talents for any function or event."

- Brandi

"David's story of being a cancer and divorce survivor is powerful in it's honesty and vulnerability. His story is both moving and gritty, and he tells it in a way that inspires the audience. He takes his story of cancer, rebellion, and doubt and turns it into a story of redemption and faith."

- Carl

"If you feel your group needs some hope or motivation, I can’t imagine a better guy to share it. Not everyday do you meet a guy who has gone through what this guy has. I mean, the guy is still alive two years after his expiration date. I highly suggest hiring David for your next speaking event. He will go the extra mile to ensure your group gets exactly what they need. I trust him. You should too."

- Donald
