Hi there! I’m so honored you are interested in me speaking at your event. I know it’s a tough decision to hire a speaker, and my goal on this page is to give you all the information you need to make the best decision. Whether you’re a business or healthcare organization, I’d love to see if there’s a way for me to help amplify the great work you’re doing.

I understand the challenge of finding just the right speaker. In my prior role as the Director of Sports Medicine at an academic medical center, I organized an annual sports medicine conference. I know the challenge of finding a speaker who can educate, enlighten and entertain your audience.

David Geier is a truly terrific professional and public speaker. He has spoken at our conferences several times. He gets great reviews. People love his talks, and he has terrific presence and is a great public speaker.

About Me

As an orthopedic surgeon, sports medicine expert and author of That’s Gotta Hurt: The Injuries That Changed Sports Forever, I treat athletes from the professional to youth levels. My online and social media platform focused on staying healthy and performing your best is one of the largest of any orthopedic surgeon in the world. Through stories of elite athletes overcoming injuries and enormous odds to excel at the highest levels of sports, I inspire your audience members to become the leaders and champions they are meant to be, no matter what obstacles stand in their way.

My Speaking Topics

Despite over a decade of experience as an orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist, I speak on topics related to leadership, excellence, adversity, change, and communication. In fact, I use my medical experience to inspire and teach both healthcare and corporate audiences.

I will customize my presentation to meet your organization’s specific needs. My goal is to facilitate the outcome you want to create. Please understand that I can present these topics as keynote speeches or workshops. Also, I can deliver half-day, and in some cases, full-day seminar versions.

“Dr. Geier engaged our physicians in a highly productive interaction that was both well received and extremely beneficial. It is not often that I see surgeons open up about the challenges of maintaining a positive outlook and environment for themselves and for their team. Dr. Geier led them to do so in a thoughtful and collaborative manner. The outcomes of this engagement will be far reaching both personally and organizationally. I cannot think of a time better spent!”

Less Stress, More Success: Overcoming and Preventing Workplace Burnout

In his inspiring keynote speech and webinars, Dr. Geier explains why burnout is so detrimental to employees and physicians (who have the highest rate of burnout in any profession). While sharing changes that must be made at a company, organization and national level to curb the burnout problem, he shares key steps every individual can take immediately to recognize and overcome burnout, reconnect with why they work in their field, and be at their best for their customers, companies and patients.

“With his inspiring speech, energy and enthusiasm, Dr. David Geier captured the attention of the audience. He gave concrete, real-life examples of burnout and tangible strategies to curb it. He has a great gift of public speaking and of delivering his message in a very clear fashion. In brief, Dr. Geier is a fantastic speaker who is engaging and passionate about the subject of burnout among physicians and other healthcare professionals.”

Grow Your Practice, Your Patients and Your Presence: 3 Critical Tools For Online (and Offline!) Communication

Every healthcare professional must be able to communicate to the public. Rather than wasting time deciding whether you should tweet or share photos on Instagram, I explain the three critical tools you must understand and implement if you want to reach your desired audience and make an impact.

Each of these topics can be personalized for any healthcare or business audience to deliver the experience and outcomes you desire. I look forward to talking further about your upcoming event and tailoring a topic to fit your audience and their educational needs.

“Dr. Geier’s talk on burnout was engaging, pertinent, and inspiring. In the age where no one puts down their cell phones even at the family dinner table, everyone was locked into what Dr. Geier had to say. Burnout is such an important topic in the medical field. It’s great to see surgeons recognizing the importance of the topic and talking about it openly.”

– Simone Betchen, M.D., neurosurgeon in Brooklyn, New York and advocate for female surgeons everywhere
