Are you a leader that wants to maximize your leadership potential?

Through my book and keynote presentation, I show you how to overcome obstacles inherent to leadership, and develop success strategies with proven results.



Growing up in the urban community of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY, Dr. Walker experienced the challenges and struggles that come with living in a community of drugs and gang violence. This experience birthed within him a belief that one’s most significant accomplishments are within one’s desire to be better than the circumstances you grew up in or the environment you are in.

Dr. Walker also believes that education is the agent of a successful life. As such, his educational accomplishments include a doctorate in organizational leadership, a master’s degree in school administration, sports management, and a Master of Divinity in theology.

A voice of inspiration to many, Dr. Walker empowers leaders to maximize their leadership potential. He helps you overcome obstacles inherent to leadership and develop success strategies with proven results. He is a former NYC school administrator, pastor, and NCAA Division 1 college basketball referee.

Dr. Walker is the husband of Emeline Toni, and the father of three adult children, David Jr., Tameeka, and Elizabeth. But, his greatest joy is in his role as the grandfather of David III and Navy Rose.
