David Newton motivational speaker


Believe me when I say that I know the challenges you face in finding the right Motivational Speaker for your event. I have been responsible for more events than I can accurately count, from small corporate training sessions to large, arena-sized productions.

I learned the hard way that the success of any event often comes down to the speaker. That is why I believe wholeheartedly in listening to what your goal is and working with you to set you and your event up for success.

So, allow me to introduce myself firstly through this video, and we can take it from there.

But firstly, thanks for scrolling this far on someone you may not even know yet. I appreciate you taking the time and effort. In return I promise to to waste your time with boring fluff and get right down to the nuts and bolts of what I can do for you.

My hope is that my page will make it easy for you to get the information you need to make the best decision possible.

Let's go...

Looking for a Key Note Speaker?

You'll want to know a little bit about me then.

I have been behind a microphone for more than 20 years and have been the guest speaker, MC or comedian at more than 2,000 events... from board rooms to stages to spiritual retreats. 

I started out my speaking journey on the debate team in high school and was soon invited to speak at local churches and youth groups. 1990 was a wonderful time to be alive in South Africa as the country had just released Nelson Mandela from 27 years in prison, abolished the tyranny of Apartheid and was getting ready for the country's first ever democratic elections just three years later. What a magical time to witness first-hand the vast majority black population get treated like equal citizens and given the right to vote for their first democratically elected president. As a teenager I had front row seats to this incredible historic event. 

My early career path took me into the advertising world I learned about why people decide to buy what they buy. I added that knowledge to the revelations on the basic human make-up I had already gathered, and soon I was sharpening my talks for the business market. 

After spending some time punching a corporate clock, I began my wonderful adventure as a stand up comedian... which earned me national fame, multiple awards and afforded me the ability to acquire my American Green Card and move to Los Angeles in 2011.

I have had the privilege of being the presenter for a reality travel television show, 'The Couch Trip' which ran for 2 seasons. I made my movie debut in an indi-film called 'Dollars & White Pipes' (2005) and can more recently be seen in Clint Eastwood's feature film adaptation of 'Jersey Boys' and 'Blood In The Water' opposite Willa Holland & Alex Russell.

I now devote my time to developing television shows, writing movie screenplays, stand up comedy, consulting, and speaking on varying platforms.

So, how can I add value to your event?
