Dale's primary passion is sharing the message that has transformed her life. She says her greatest achievement was one of the letters received from an audience member that stated, “Your name should read, Dale Smith Thomas, PhD, The Hope Doctor.” As the “Hope Doctor” one of her main core messages is teaching others how to be Hope Dealers and her definition of hope, Helping Other People Excel, is stamped on every page of her life.

The words Inspirational and Motivational were created to describe Dale Smith Thomas. Her fire and spunk created a movement within our company that is unbelievably positive and fits perfectly with our mission statement “Be Exceptional”. Dale’s magnetic personality is like no other and our team left with tools that will take them to the next level both personally and professionally. I have never seen a presenter send a message that is so deeply received, put into action, and created such a lasting impression. Her message has no boundaries and can span any industry from real estate to healthcare and beyond.
