Speaking and Publications

What have participants said about Dave’s presentations and writing:

I have been enjoying and appreciating your perspectives presented on ValueStreaming.  I’m impressed also with the regularity of your postings and their consistently high quality.  I have found it exceedingly difficult to get into anything resembling a routine that would allow for a steady stream of intelligent blogging — I congratulate you for doing so!

Excellent job of articulating the tangible and intangible business benefits of managing sustainable supply chains. Not so much “have to do” but “want to do” because it is good business.

I enjoy checking out your site, your articles are always extremely educational and the way you lay every little thing out makes it easy to comprehend.

Great info on best practices.

Over the years, I have been invited to speak to businesses, non-profits and public agencies at national, regional and local conferences, addressing important timely and relevant issues related to environmental management systems, sustainability best practices, regulatory compliance, environmental policy and greening of the supply chain.   I am well-regarded for my passionate delivery and engaging audiences.  I have also authored chapters of groundbreaking and important industry publications, and written guest columns for a variety of global and local sustainability/green business content e-magazines (including Environmental Leader, GreenBiz, Triple Pundit, Sustainable Plant, Manufacturing Executive, Toronto Sustainable Speaker Series, Sustainable Business Oregon, GreenConduct, China Sourcer, Supply Chain Management Times, 2Degrees, Sustainable Business Forum and Green Economy Post).  I am also a regular expert contributor on ‘green supply chain management’ for the Kinaxis Supply Chain Community (https://community.kinaxis.com/people/DRMeyer/blog).

Speaking Topics:

  • Environmental, Health and Safety
