Dave Reinhardt joined the Ty Boyd team in 1998 shortly after moving to Charlotte from his home state of Ohio where he graduated with a BA in English from Ohio Wesleyan University. While at Ohio Wesleyan he met Carrie, and (spoiler alert!) the two were married 12 years later! During his undergrad days he was part of the College Program at Walt Disney World, working in the Magic Kingdom and participating in the 1994 Disney Christmas Day Parade. After graduation he acted in summer stock theatre, became an instructor and actor with the Children's Theatre of Charlotte, was a member of the cast of the Carolina Renaissance Festival, a featured storyteller at a variety of schools, museums, and festivals, and a player in the improvisational troupe, Improv Charlotte. In 2009 Carrie and Dave moved to St Andrews, Scotland for Dave to pursue a Master's degree and PhD at the University of St Andrews' Institute for Theology, Imagination, and the Arts. While there they had two girls, Molly and Abigail. In 2014 they returned as a family to the US and settled in Davidson, NC, and Dave rejoined Improv Charlotte and the TBELS faculty.

I saw you on LinkedIn today and thought it would be nice to say "thank you" for the training you provided to me and my teammates when I was just starting my career at Apple back in the mid 80s. Who would have imagined in 1984 that Apple would one day be the most valuable company in history? I've had a wonderful career in high-tech and I've used the skills I learned in your course every step of the way.
What a great job you did helping to make this year’s Annual Meeting a smashing success! You are always pure joy to work with and I value highly your support, partnership & friendship.
This course will help in every aspect of your life.
I leave with more confidence in my potential to be an impactful speaker and an effective trainer. Fear has much less of a hold on me now. This course was very, very rewarding. I would recommend it to anybody who is serious about improving their ability to convey a message. The facilitators were great and modeled behavior I’d like to emulate.
The experience definitely gave me tools to disarm and transfer my fear into energy. The numerous opportunities to get up and speak on my feet gave me great new insights for my future development.
The fear that stopped me in my tracks, disarmed me, and took my breath away at the beginning of the course now drives me!
Our whole department grew together during the course. We were coached to become more professional by using listening skills without judgment. Our team now shares a common focus – the customer.
The Call Center Course provided my team with a framework to become more effective communicators. The facilitator did an excellent job balancing the course agenda with participant discussion keeping us focused and on track.
The one-on-one video review and coaching was my favorite part of the course. So helpful!
Excellent course for myself and the business. I should have done this 20 years ago.
In my 28 years in the professional world, I have participated in many retreats, seminars, and career building opportunities. This was by far the most beneficial for me. I feel like I have learned skills and tools that I will take with me, and put into action for the rest of my life. I have a sense of accomplishment. Thank you!
Excellence in Speaking® is one of the best courses I have ever attended. I will continue to send our employees through this program.
I went through a list of all the trainings, seminars, and skill development programs I have been to in the last 15 years, and your course was the best I have ever attended. My public speaking awareness and skill grew extensively during my time with you. Thank you for creating a safe environment for everyone so they could learn.
I learned lessons that will stay with me and help me with my career in education.
Your course really refined my skills as a communicator and has increased my confidence a million fold. I have been told my many that I look very professional as a communicator and appear as an expert in the field of speaking. I attribute this to your course!
The training and insight that I received from our time together has been something that I think about and use every day. In addition to my formal presentations, I am reminded of the lessons and learnings when I’m in staff meetings or helping my daughter with her student council speech. You gave me many life lessons in communication that have carried over to my everyday life! Thank you, Ty Boyd, Inc.!
I truly enjoyed the class and appreciated your leadership, guidance, and enthusiasm throughout. I’ve been to several training classes over the course of my career, but this was simply the best. You clearly love what you do and it directly translates into positive energy that offers folks the confidence and reassurance that improvement is within your direct control. I am looking forward to continuing my progression and working smart at self-improvement.
WOW! The Ty Boyd ESI course was definitely time well spent! I want to thank Anne, Molly, and my classmates for helping me look inward and build the communication skills to reach outward to the audience.
