Who is Dave?

For more than 40 years, DAVE LIEBER, a popular keynote speaker and entertainer, humorist, playwright, business storytelling coach and award-winning Watchdog columnist for The Dallas Morning News, has used stories to change the world.

Nothing motivates people more, the Texas motivational speaker believes, than stories about positive change that help people change positively.

The winner of the coveted Will Rogers Humanitarian Award from the National Society of Newspaper Columnists for his good deeds in the community, Dave most recently won top prize in the group’s 2019 column-writing contest.

The contest judge noted: “Through a lively combination of consumer advocacy and investigative reporting, Lieber’s columns were models of suspenseful storytelling and public service.”
