"Whatever you're selling, ya gotta know the territory"
Harvey Mackay

Hospitality marketing strategies delivered with honest candor, deep passion, classic anecdotes, compelling arguments and the right touch of humor.

David Brudney has appeared frequently as a featured speaker, motivator, teacher, lecturer and facilitator throughout his long career because of his powerful communication skills and his unique ability to inform, entertain and inspire his audiences.

Brudney uses an engaging manner and puts his audiences at ease quickly, drawing upon past experiences as a child actor, baseball player, tour escort, radio and television newsman and teacher prior to his distinguished career as a hotel sales and marketing director and today as a professional management and marketing consultant.

Brudney is a masterful storyteller who has regaled audiences worldwide with his most welcomed style of honest candor, deep passion, classic anecdotes, compelling arguments and always with the right touch of humor.
