TBS Sports

"Josh Davis is an exceptional swimmer as attested by his Olympic Medals. But more than that he is an outstanding person who has had a major impact on the lives of many young people through his speeches and appearances. I have seen young and old alike hang on every word Josh says as he relates his story and encouragement to all. He is an outstanding athlete, broadcaster and motivational speaker who has the God given ability to make a difference in peoples lives. I am honored and blessed to have worked with Josh on many projects, from broadcasting to special events, and would not hesitate to have Josh as a featured speaker no matter what the event. "

Wheaton Academy Athletic Director

"As an American Record holder and multiple Olympic Gold medalist, Josh Davis' competitive performances are well documented. His greatest contributions to the success of the USA National Team, however, came outside of the pool. The fact that he was elected Team Captain by his Olympic Team peers is testimony to his strong leadership. Josh Davis was the model leader.he was a fierce competitor, but very respectful of his competitors, officials and coaches; he personified an unselfish "team first" attitude, and was a counselor, mentor and friend to his teammates; he energized the team with his positive attitude, but was humble in victory and gracious in defeat. In short, Josh Davis was a great ambassador for the USA Team and the sport of swimming throughout his national team career."

NAPFA - Registered Financial Advisor LVM Capital Management, Ltd.

"We have had Josh as a guest speaker at several of our client events over the past year. He has done an outstanding job with conveying his inspirational Olympic dream to a reality story to our audience. The principals he speaks on transcends the swimming pool to everyday common application from youth groups to board rooms to client appreciation events. I would not hesitate in recommending Josh Davis as a featured/keynote speaker at your next event."

John Naber Olympic champion, speaker, author, television broadcaster

"Josh has the rare ability to communicate with large groups, while establishing a personal connection with each individual. His character is above reproach, his delivery is very personal and his messages are always worthwhile. His swimming successes reflect his commitment to excellence, and his long record of speaking with youth and professional audiences gives him a leg up on the competition. As a motivational speaker, Josh has a golden touch!"
