    The Perspective Directive: Changing Your Reality to Create Happiness & Growth

    Complete with a diverse cast of characters, comedy sketches, and some pretty awesome PowerPoint slides, David utilizes the power of comedy and perspective to inspire audiences to take a step back and perceive problems, failures, conflicts, and even tragedies as opportunities to learn, grow, discover joy, and inspire others.

    After graduating from The University of Akron with a degree in political science, David Horning took the next logical step: moving to New York City to pursue a comedy career. In his two years there, David studied and performed improvisation and sketch comedy at The Upright Citizens Brigade, produced a number of web videos (one of which was featured on Will Ferrell's humor website "Funny or Die"), produced and performed in the sketch comedy show "Laundry Day," featured monthly at Times Square comedy club Caroline's on Broadway, and was selected to perform in the 2014 New York Comedy Festival. As a strong proponent of self-development and happiness, David saw an opportunity to expand his message by traveling the country and sharing the power of humor and perspective with businesses using his off-the-wall presentation style. David's first book, "Find the Funny" is available on Amazon.

    Within every obstacle, problem, challenge, failure, or tragedy lies opportunity, and all it takes to find it is a shift in perspective. Take a moment to ask yourself:

    "Am I getting the results I want? Am I living the life I want to live?"

    "Am I thinking about a problem or an opportunity?"

    "Am I taking action on a problem or on an opportunity?"

    "Did I leave the iron on?"

    We behave based on how we perceive ourselves and the world around us. If we aren't achieving what we want, all it takes to change this is a shift in perspective, and that's what David inspires audiences to do in The Perspective Directive.
