Biography

David Miln Smith, Ph.D., is a multi-faceted entrepreneur. Few others, if any, have the wide variety, diversity, and longevity of athletic adventures in the most exotic and sacred places on the planet.

Most athletes and adventurers hone specific skills to high-level excellence. While confidence comes from skill, courage comes from learning to manage fear in first-time experiences. Dr. Smith has faced that kind of fear. He has literally put his life on the line, many times, and along the way become an authority on managing fear and overcoming self-imposed limits.

Motivational speaking comes naturally to Dr. Smith. His lack of inhibition and sense of humor, coupled with his remarkable real-life experiences, never fails to captivate and inspire audiences. Enthusiasm overflows as he describes his personal metamorphosis from unfulfilled businessman to professional adventurer. He presents guidance and insights about overcoming fear and self- imposed limits. Audiences return to their organizations with courage and confidence, ready to take action.

Risk taking is invaluable as an everyday tactic, not just an occasional strategy. Today's business environment is like perpetual white-water. Navigating rapids of change requires risk oriented management skills. Dr. Smith teaches how to convert the fear of change from an enemy to an ally, and reframes risk from aversion to excitement.

David Miln Smith joined the ranks of fellow Washington High, San Francisco alums Maya Angelou, Danny Glover, Johnny Mathis, and Lee Ann Meriwether in receiving The Hall of Merit for his outstanding achievements in exploration and humanitarian deeds.

Dr. Smith is the author of three books, entitled The East/West Exercise Book, Healing Journey: The Odyssey of an Uncommon Athlete, and Hug the Monster: How to Embrace Your Fears and Live Your Dreams.

David Miln Smith was awarded England's "The Spirit of Ecstasy" award for "Personification of Mind and Body." He was twice selected the Adventurer of the Year, and is a member of The Explorers Club. He went back to university later in life and graduated summa cum laude (with highest honors) from the University of West Florida and holds a Ph.D. in Health and Human Services.
