Meet David Sand

David Sand is a compelling keynote speaker who
walks his talk. A respected leader, entrepreneur and
authority on performance incentives, David’s life
and work embody his message. He is a man of
heart and action, on stage as much as in person.

As founder and chairman of the acclaimed Uwin
Iwin Performance Incentives, David has led his team
— and clients — to international success. He is a
past president of SITE, the Society for Incentive
Travel Excellence, a recipient of the IMA Award for
Excellence and IMEX Academy Award for his
outstanding contribution to the industry. His first
book, The Song of the Sandman, thoughtfully
documents his journey with valuable lessons from
leadership and life.

David also serves as trustee for The Duke of
Edinburgh’s International Award Foundation’s “The
President’s Award” in South Africa, and chairman of
the Scouts South Africa Bryanston First Chapter.
Members of his influential international network
know David as a trusted advisor, a passionate
motivator, and an exceptional golfing companion.
But what stands out most is David’s values as a
leader, a family man and above all, a man of faith.
David’s keynotes, writing and work galvanise
audiences with not only inspiration, but also the
actionable steps to enhance the way they perform,
lead and live.
