Dear David Franklin,
I would like to thank you for your presentation to our GEAR UP students. I loved your attention getting opening with the guitar and your songs were a pleasure to hear. Your topics: self-injury, anger and bullying, are timely and relevant; exactly what students this age need to hear. Our students face these problems much more than most adults realize.
Again, thank you so much for sharing your talent and experience with our students.

To Whom It May Concern:
David Franklin has presented to the Bishop O’Dowd parent community for the last two years. His focus has been on the realities of teen life and the issues that often arise as part of the milieu of the teen experience and their relationship with their parents.
The evaluations and feedback we’ve received have been stellar. The comments that stand out include the fact that David’s presentation is interactive, informative, helpful, and useful.
David also did a wonderful presentation to the school’s Peer Health class two years ago. He tailored that to the younger group and each student said they not only enjoyed the discussion, but also found it to be helpful and used aspects of the discussion in the newsletter the class published as part of its focus on teen behaviors.
I highly recommend David as a speaker for both an adult audience and for younger groups. He is engaging, informative, and professional.
