David’s mission in life is to help people realize their highest potential through education. To accomplish this mission, David founded what has become Next Step Education Group, in 1995.
NextStepU (www.NextStepU.com) helps students with college, career and life planning. It is a leader in its category and has become a multimillion-dollar enterprise and winner of many prestigious awards and honors, including being named a three times consecutive Inc. 5000 growth company; a Rochester, N.Y., Top 100 growth company; Youth Periodical of the Year from the Association of Educational Publishers; Digital Rochester Transformation Award in 2014; and LINK Magazine was recognized by APEX in 2014 for excellence in print for a magazine, journal or tabloid.
In 2004, David published his first book, “101 Things You Can Do To Become an Outstanding Young Adult.” His second book, “Make Love in the Workplace,” a guide to awesome culture in the office, was published in 2014. He has spoken at hundreds of high school, college, business and EO events. In June 2012, he was able to check something off from his bucket list and spoke at a TEDx Conference (www.nextstepu.com/DaveTedx).
