spoke at FIT
“I’ll never forget when I asked David to speak at FIT and he agreed. The best way to relate is to quote what they said that when Aeschines spoke the people said, “How well he speaks”; but when Demosthenes spoke, they said, “Let us march!” Truly an inspiration and a great communicator” August 20, 2008
