His passion for new ideas is only rivaled by his will and desire to see those ideas come to life. Dave Conklin now spends much of his time as a internet marketing speaker, consultant, and company builder, making a name for himself both around the country and internationally speaking at CEO, manufacturing, robotics, and marketing conferences. Dave resides in Quarryville PA with his spouse and 4 children. He's an avid Yankees fan and photographer as well as active in his church and community.
