David Horsager to Deliver Agent Summit Keynote


LAS VEGAS — World-renowned motivational speaker and leadership trainer David Horsager will deliver the Wednesday keynote address at this year’s Agent Summit, organizers announced. The event will be held May 9–11, 2016, at the Venetian Palazzo Las Vegas.

“The Trust Edge” launched Horsager, an entrepreneur, corporate boardmember and university professor, on a speaking and consulting career. Past clients have included the New York Yankees, the U.S. Congress and the Department of Homeland Security.

“At the heart of ‘The Trust Edge’ is the contention that, by building trust in yourself in your business, an entrepreneur gains a competitive edge,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Agent Entrepreneur and F&I and Showroom. “I know agents will respond to Horsager’s message and we are honored to be able to bring a speaker of his caliber to our event.”
