Over 25 years ago, Dave Davlin began bringing smiles to faces with a form of entertainment he developed as a young boy. From NBA and major college arenas across America to the Summer Olympic Games in Seoul, South Korea-- and even to the world-famous Branson Strip-- "Travelin" Davlin has entertained people of every age and background. His amazing ability with basketballs even landed his name and picture in the 1990 Guinness Book of World Records.

Dave began to hone his speaking skills in the early 90's as a national speaker in the public schools across America. Combining his entertainment ability with a powerful message, he was instrumental in the fight for education and against drugs. At the advice of friends working in corporate America, Dave began to develop presentations for the corporate and association market and the rest is history. He now speaks at numerous corporate and associational conferences each year. From public school students to CEOs, Dave's message has made a difference in the lives of thousands, and his impact continues to grow each year as he shares his philosophy and wisdom through speaking and writing.

In his presentation “The Game-Winning 3”, speaker/author Dave Davlin shares that the scorecard of true success is built upon three elements … The Person You Become, The Memories You Create and The Difference You Make. “MAKE IT COUNT” is the sequel as it takes the audience into a deeper understanding of what is required in terms of action and mindset in order to accomplish a life and career of purpose, fulfillment and contribution.

In this eye-opening presentation, Dave leads the audience through a nine-step journey of self-discovery and mastery… a journey toward extraordinary results. “MAKE IT COUNT” uncovers the strategies and steps necessary to identify, pursue and experience what is truly most important.

Three Learning Outcomes
• Identifying critical goals and compelling motives
• Recognizing obstacles and eliminating excuses which inhibit success
• Developing the winning assets of action, gratitude and teamwork


Success can be defined in its simplest form as making life better for someone else. Whether it comes in creating a better product, helping to relieve someone’s stress or pain, bringing someone laughter or joy or helping someone get more out of their life, success is always about serving.

This being the case, the key to success in any business lies not only in the development of great products and services, but more importantly in the development of great people. In this insightful presentation, Dave Davlin shares three essential ingredients for developing a purpose-driven mentality to achieve a fulfilling career and balanced life.

This presentation is an hour of interaction, humor and audience participation mixed with a powerful message. It is a roller coaster ride of emotion that will find the audience engaged in hilarious laughter one moment and brought to tears the next. The audience will be challenged to make the most of every moment in order to develop themselves personally and professionally while creating value and making a difference in the lives of others.

Three Learning Outcomes
• Developing vision and defining one's sense of purpose
• Recognizing and embracing the importance of creating positive and memorable experiences with fellow workers and family members
• Understanding and embracing the value of service in the pursuit of success


In everyone there exists the potential to achieve excellence. Each of us has unique skills and innate abilities that can lead us to success and fulfillment both personally and professionally. Unfortunately, however, we also possess certain traits, habits and even beliefs that often prevent us from reaching our true potential and experiencing life to the fullest.

Whether manifested in the form of a physical or mental limitation, an emotional or psychological affliction, or even an imagined encumbrance, such handicaps sabotage the pursuit of our goals and desires in ways that may be hidden to us. In this inspiring and impactful presentation, Dave Davlin shares how he identified and refused to be limited by his own obstructions—and reassures audiences that even though limitations exist in many forms, we do not have to be limited by them.

Three Learning Outcomes
• Recognizing our potential limitations, seen or unseen, physical, mental, emotional or habitual
• Identifying strategies and actions that allow us to continue on in spite of our limitations
•. Distinguishing the effects of habits and decisions on future failures or successes


The late Jim Rohn once said, “Life is difficulty mixed with opportunity.” While most individuals and organizations find it comfortable to thrive in times of opportunity, it requires specialized skills and a specific mindset to be victorious in times of difficulty and change.

In this presentation, Dave addresses the unexpected changes and challenges that can manifest themselves in conventional business and everyday life. He reveals seven principles that can lead us to thrive amid uncertainty and to be triumphant in the face of overwhelming odds.

Three Learning Outcomes:
• Recognizing and being prepared for the inevitability of change
• Identifying seven principles to achieve success in the face of uncertainty
• Recognizing and managing the invisible enemy of FEAR when dealing with the unknown
