Foundation, Frank Talk on Leadership and Frank Talk of Public Speaking. Together, the Frank Talk series have sold more than 200,000 copies— generating significant contributions to The Rotary Foundation. For three years, David represented New Jersey on the White House Conference on Small Business, and he is a Realtor with Keller Williams Realty in Medford. David’s passion is volunteerism, and has initiated and led humanitarian work trips across America and to the Dominican Republic and Beirut. He has served his church as deacon and elder, and is a Commissioned Lay Pastor in the Presbyterian Church. As a Rotarian for 39 years, he served three times as club president, as well as district conference chairman, district membership development chairman, State Vocational Assembly chairman, and District PolioPlus chairman, for which the president of Rotary International awarded him the Citation for Meritorious Service. David served as Governor of District 7500 for 2015-16, and when the DGE resigned six days before her year began, he agreed to continue as Governor for 2016-2017. In 1991, David founded International Children’s Aid Foundation and serves as its president. The all-volunteer foundation has its own orphanage, dental and medical clinics in Romania and has taught hundreds of abandoned children early childhood education, vocational training and life skills. David hosts several groups of volunteers each year who go to Romania on short term mission trips from all over the world and has visited Romania 70 times. After reviewing a global line-up of professional writers, a blue-chip panel of Rotary International officers unanimously selected David Forward to be the author of the official history book of Rotary. The book, A Century of Service, has earned praise from Rotarians the world over and multiple editions have sold out. Rotary International subsequently chose David to author the book Doing Good in the World, celebrating the centennial of The Rotary Foundation, just published last January. He has just finished his 13th book: A String of Pearls: Inspiring Stories of how Rotary Peace Fellows are Serving Humanity and Changing the World. In 2005, the 1.2 million-member National Association of Realtors named him the winner of the Good Neighbor Award for his volunteer work. In 2011, he was awarded Realtor of the Year. David and Chris are Rotary Foundation Major Donors and live in Medford, New Jersey. Their son David is an equities analyst with Deutsche Bank.

Mr. David C. Forward DISTRICT GOVERNOR A uthor


D avid was born and educated in England. He became a Rotarian in 1978 after moving to the United States. He just finished writing his 13th book, A String of Pearls: Inspiring Stories of How Rotary Peace Fellows are Serving Humanity and Changing the World . David has written the book pro bono and a private foundation has agreed to produce it, and so every dime from book sales will go to The Rotary Foundation. In 2016, David released his book Doing Good in the World: The Inspiring Story of The Rotary Foundation's First 100 Years. His other books, Heroes After Hours, Sales Superstars, DUH! Lessons in Employee Motivation That Every Business Should Learn—from the World’s Best (and Worst!) Airlines, Miracles Among Us, and The Essential Guide to the Short-Term Mission Trip either hit the best-seller list or went into multiple printings, and all deal with either volunteerism or ethical business practices. David will be familiar to many Rotarians through Frank Talk, which he wrote for Past RI President Frank Devlyn—the fastest-selling book in Rotary history. Ten years after it was first released, Frank Talk has sold 100,000 copies and has been translated into Spanish, Turkish, Korean, Portuguese, Hindi, Italian, Mandarin, and Vietnamese. Past-President Frank and David collaborated on follow-up books called Frank Talk II, which shows clubs how to retain the members they bring in, and F rank Talk on The Rotary
