Once upon a time, Dave Bricker voyaged on a small sailboat in search of stories. Leaving with $30 and a locker full of food and dreams, he sailed thousands of miles through the Bahamas, across the Atlantic, and up the east coast of the United States.

Today, as an award-winning speaker and author, he shares true stories of adventure at sea—storms, calms, standing watch, and navigating—as metaphors for the challenges that leaders and teams face on the seas of commerce. His unique StorySailing® method has helped thousands of writers, speakers, professionals, and visionaries craft messages that connect, engage, and succeed—on the page and on the stage.
