His specifications have been adopted, either partially or in their entirety, by industry associations and manufacturers worldwide.

His training initiatives have reached six of the seven continents, with Antarctica being the only exception due to its scarcity of concrete—a challenge he hopes to address in the near future. David has conducted training sessions not only across the United States but also in Canada, Mexico, Peru, Brazil, Sweden, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Korea, Japan, China, Australia, and many other countries.

As a board member of multiple American Concrete Institute committees, David's philosophy aligns with education, information sharing, training, and problem-solving as key pillars for uplifting and supporting concrete industry manufacturers, contractors, and property owners/managers. He believes that this philosophy fosters industry growth, enabling more companies to achieve success.
