“Dave Hollander is the freshest, most intelligent voice in sports, that I’ve heard in years.  He is the George Plimpton for 21st Century; a speaker, commentator and writer who can make an audience think and feel about what is right, good and decent and hopefully not lost in sports and our world.  …He made our students think differently and that is truly tough to do.”

- Robert Boland, Professor of Sports Management, New York University

“Upon reviewing the results of the student questionnaires after his first appearance, I know without a doubt that in Dave Hollander I have a keynote speaker for next term and many semesters to follow.”

- John Vorperian, Professor of Sports Law and Business, Concordia College

“Dave Hollander is a unique guy … a lawyer who ran a rock club and a film festival and knowseverything about sports and wrote a popular book about it … A dynamic talker and MC at events, Dave has it all.”

- Barney Oldfield, General Manager, Film Anthology Archives

“Dave Hollander is a charismatic speaker. He combines humor and charm with intelligence and sincerity, successfully engaging audiences. I have seen Dave connect with audiences formally as orator at my bookstores well as in “loose” free-style setting on stage in an entertainment venue. His personal, off-beat style creates realness in the room that is often missing from other canned presentations I’ve seen. He’s exceptionally quick on his feat during Q&A and his wealth of anecdotes make you wonder “What hasn’t this guy done?” I give the highest recommendation to anyone considering Dave as a speaker.”

- Carolyn T. Hughes, Community Relations Manager, Barnes & Noble, NYC

“The guy should have his own TV show!”

- John Cirillo, Professor of Sports Communications, Fordham University

“Dave as the MC was hysterically funny. He kept the attention of the crowd, kept show moving and made it seem like a mature event running like a top!  Everyone was so impressed.”

- Erica Schietinger, Vice President, Corporate Communications. Chelsea Piers Management
