What will I learn in 20 minutes?

This intro session will give you insight into the top 3 misconceptions we have from watching Holocaust movies.
David's professional background has been teaching public speaking to educators, rabbis and community leaders for more than three decades. Many young scholars have graduated from his 1 year course that teaches them skills like media relations and how to be a better leader. He also works with groups visiting Israel to teach communication skills.  
David set up and runs an educational non-profit which sees him traveling the world to work with activists and community leaders.

David was born in the UK and moved to Israel in 1982. His hobbies include reading and watching a good movie.  He is always up for a friendly chat in any topic. Sports, David admits, is his blind spot.
