David Baum: Walking Storybook

David Baum has had adventures all over the world. He’s a walking storybook and a book of quotations. 

A Maasai warrior in Africa once gave him the nickname “La Mayan,” which means one who loves to walk and talk. As a result, David has sometimes been called a conversation architect. For over 30 years, he has facilitated conversations that create significant change. With two doctorates, 1) finding horizontal connections as a social psychologist and 2) looking for vertical ones in divinity, he seeks the overlap. 

He says his “why” is always the same, to create a connection without dots. He has worked with exceptional organizations and people, including Jane Goodell, Oprah Winfrey, Bill Clinton, Conde Nast, We, The Philadelphia Flyers, and Life is Good. His work has included conflict mediation in Northern Ireland, designing walking board meetings in the middle east, and large-scale change projects for Shell Oil, Barclays, GE, Charles Schwab, and Fidelity Investments.
