Interview with Dave Kerpen

How did you begin your speaking career?

I began my speaking career in college. I ended up being a pseudo-famous ballpark vendor known as the “Crunch-n-Munch guy” in Boston, and several companies actually booked me to speak.

How much does humor factor into your keynotes and other speaking engagements?

Humor is key. People are paying for you to entertain and inspire them and everybody loves to laugh.

What is the best way to build your network?

Share great content from other people.

What would you like to achieve in the next 5 years?

I’d love to build another company to at least $10M and publish a bestseller on mental health.
