With People Deliver Projects: Since 2007
Fits in: Dave leads our events. As well as coach and facilitator, Dave is a designer, writer and director. He has built our events practice up from scratch to becoming a core strategy of the business.
Andy’s view: Dave brings the creative energy, and in fact most of the energy, to the team. Because of his range of skills we can create our unique large events. I believe there isn’t anyone else in the world doing quite what we do. He keeps us laughing and tends to think anything is possible – Hence we also argue a lot.
Getting to here: Alongside People Deliver Projects, Dave is still a practising writer and director - He is Director to the Cambridge Shakespeare Festival. Before joining People Deliver Projects he spent fifteen years working for corporate training and events companies, and various management roles including three years at the Oxford Shakespeare festival. As an actor Dave spent eight years working in Television, Film, Stage and Radio. He has written plays and directed for such companies as the Thorndike Theatre, British Arts Council and the Redgrave. And along with his trusty ukelele, he is a regular on the Stand-up Comedy circuit where he is much in demand as a compere.
Education: Dip. Acting (Guildford School of Acting)
In real life: Dave is annoyingly fit - especially swimming, and is a keen Ceroc (Modern Jive) dancer.
