Melissa Hull Gallemore, Co-host of the Hollywood Entrepreneurship and partner at Icon Builder media

My time here in Dubai with Dave Crane has been truly not only inspirational but transformational.

He has helped me. I’ve been on TV and so people assume that you’re just speaking in front of the crowd is easy but I’m on a set and it’s very different to go from a closed set just speaking to a live audience.

He helped me identify some limiting beliefs and really step more fully into my presence on stage. And eliminate all of that fear and he’s an amazing man.

I can’t wait to work with him more in the future.

Brian Ridgeway, Spell breaker & spiritual leader

For the last 40 years have been fanatic about seeking out the best in any area that I want to study. I don’t just look for the hype I look at what people are saying is great and then I’d I’ve investigated for myself and I had a unique experience about five years ago…

I ran into Dave Crane and I immediately can see that this guy was a rock star in every sense of the word, just his personality, his presence and then I found out what he did.

Well, duh, it makes sense since then over the last five years I’ve seen Dave everywhere and then I just heard him speak in Dubai.
