Bent Not Broken

After surviving terminal brain tumor, being dragged through a miserable divorce, and struggling through an unplanned pregnancy, David felt his life was completely broken. But through this painful process of seizures, heartbreaks, and failures, he has discovered that everyone, in their own way, is bent, but no one is ever truly broken. Speak with David to learn more about his message and how it can give your audience strength in their struggles and hope for their futures.

"David Wenzel's energy quickly caught the attention of the four hundred staff members in attendance. His humor and clear talent for public speaking kept our audience engaged and, at times, crying with laughter. His willingness to candidly share his personal story forged a connection with our audience in which they were active listeners as he delivered his message."

Audience Reviews:

"If you feel your group needs some hope or motivation, I can’t imagine a better guy to share it. Not every day do you meet a guy who has gone through what this guy has. I mean, the guy is still alive two years after his expiration date. I highly suggest hiring David for your next speaking event. He will go the extra mile to ensure your group gets exactly what they need. I trust him. You should too."

- Donald


“You are amazing. Just amazing." 

- Molly

"I am excited to see David continuing to share his story, knowing he will change the lives of those who get the chance to hear him. He’s funny, he’s sincere, but he also knows how to provide practical strategies for living a better life. I am positive he will encourage the students and staff at your school, church, or conference."

- Josh

"David Wenzel is a gifted speaker and powerful storyteller. His message of kindness, strength, personal growth, and inspiration will no doubt reverberate throughout our school. It is my hope that as many people as possible hear his message, and I strongly recommend utilizing his talents for any function or event."

- Brandi

“Awesome sauce.”

- Carlos


"His willingness to candidly share his personal story forged a connection without the audience in which they were active listeners as he delivered his message. That message was precisely on point with our intended theme of 'kindness' for the '18-'19 school year; he perfectly infused it within a powerful, memorable presentation."

- Annette

"If you’re looking for an authentic and inspiring communicator and storyteller who connects deeply with the hearts and minds of his audience, I would highly recommend David Wenzel. David was a pleasure to work with before, during and after being with us, and I continue to be grateful for his intentionality in asking questions and getting to know our community prior to his visit."

“David… you were a league above the rest at the Story Conference. You have an amazing story and are an inspiration to all. Thank you for the message you shared.”

- Drew

“David, you don't know me but you have changed me. Your story, your faith, your pushing past what the world would say is a hopeless cause and instead, placing your faith in true hope."

- Rebecah

“I just wanted to let you know how challenged I was by the speech you gave. I find myself sitting here and evaluating how I'm spending my days, my time. Thanks for that reminder.”
