What does PMA mean to Doug Dvorak?

To Doug, being one of the world’s most sought-after motivational speakers and sales training consultants are more than just dry data and speeches. It is about always maintaining a Positive Mental Attitude or PMA in all situations, especially the tough ones.

Since surviving cancer, Doug has regained the top physical form he had in college, when he was a nationally ranked racquetball player. He travels, he bikes, and plays pickleball; he also shares his wisdom and personal learnings with those lucky enough to call him a friend and mentor.


Doug is also a graduate of the world-famous Second City school of improve comedy, so no need to worry about him being too dry for your audience.
