Dave Durand

Best-Selling Author, CEO of ProBalance Inc,

Dave Durand is a best-selling author, executive of a $250 million company, and trainer of well over 100,000 individuals in sales, marketing, and business management. He speaks not just from theory but from experience. Dave doesn't just provide the "feel good" motivational talk — he inspires his listeners to action.

A History of Success:

For the past 16 years Dave Durand has researched, observed, and coached in excess of 100,000 individuals from all walks of life—sales representatives, Fortune 500 CEO's, secretaries, educators, small business owners, and even stay-at-home parents. From this pool of experience and data, Dave sought to find what is it that makes others more successful than the rest of the population. What he found will change your life. Dave discovered a pattern in a group of people he calls "Legacy Achievers" (highly motivated and successful people who seem to get more done in less time with what appears to be less effort). His research will show that any person in any field can get on the right path to success—and this means higher employee morale, greater efficiency throughout the work day, more time in your day, and much more!

Dave has helped thousands of people through his highly acclaimed and best-selling book, Perpetual Motivation: How to Keep Your Fire Burning in Your Career and in Life. This book has become one of Dave's most popular speeches, workshops, and seminars. Dave's experience in the board room and training room lay the foundation for excellent quality seminars and speeches in various areas (menu available on your right). He has become a favorite amongst meeting planners and speakers bureaus because of the top ratings Dave consistently receives.

Prior to founding ProBalance Inc. Dave began his career as a college student selling Cutco Cutlery. He played an important role in taking the then, $30 million domestic company to a $250 million international corporation. Dave became the youngest person in the companies 55 year history to be inducted into the company's Hall of Fame. He eventually oversaw the Canadian operation and a 15-state region in the U.S.

ProBalance, Inc.™ and The Balander™:

While continuing his success at Vector, in 1998, Dave founded ProBalance, Inc.™, a time management efficiency and leadership effectiveness company that helps individuals, corporations, and associations maximize the use of their time and develop leaders to their fullest potential.

During this time Dave developed a unique time management system and day planner, The Balander. A combination of balance + calendar, The Balander is the only solution to time management that allows you to view your day, week, month, and year all in one glance. This system is so unique that it received a U.S. patent.

So how does a husband, father of six, National Sales Manager, motivational speaker, author, and producer get everything done? The answer is in Dave's book, PERPETUAL MOTIVATION!
