Client Feedback

The event went very well. The client was very happy with Dave.  He is very good and I will definitely be using him again for future events!
Nikki Miljak, Mindshift Events

Dave was exactly what we needed for the day - He understood the type of guest we were having and adapted accordingly. His humble approach to the tasks, being fully involved and always thinking about the lighter side of things made him indispensible. Nissan Management got on famously with him - his “theatrical” element added the perfect pitch to the day. Thanks very much.
