Working for associations and a grassroots lobbying firm, Dave was exposed to the way the American government really works, which assisted him in creating opportunities to help his clients receive tens of millions of dollars in appropriations from Congress and to positively advocate for issues like small businesses, education, animal welfare and disability issues. He then created his lobbying firm Miller/Wenhold Capitol Strategies, which is a full-service lobbying firm assisting his clients in navigating the political waters of D.C. and ensuring their voices are heard by decision-makers.
For Dave’s volunteer service with the Capitol PurSuit Drive, the President of the United States awarded him the “Call to Service” award, which is the country’s highest award for citizen volunteerism. Dave was the first lobbyist to ever receive this prestigious award. Additionally, Dave was selected with three other lobbyists and named as one of the most effective association lobbyists in Washington by Association Trends.
When giving seminars, Dave’s presentations are an exciting and interactive mixture that energizes and empowers the audience. He is a likeable and powerful storyteller that infuses humor, facts and implementation strategies into each seminar. Regardless if his seminar is about strategic planning, or how to influence the political process, your audience will learn and laugh. If you are looking for a speaker that is a straight shooter, one that will share what the real Washington, D.C. is like, and one that will challenge your attendees to make their lives better and more successful, then NOW is the time to book Dave for your next event.
