I have had a number of coaching sessions with David over the past year in preparation for several key presentations to my company’s executive Board and to our leadership population. David takes time to understand the message you want to convey, and appreciates what is at stake for you during that presentation. I have had presentation coaches in the past that focus on the negative; that my stance or choice of words is not right. I find that David focuses on the positive aspects and how to engage and involve your audience rather than on more ‘academic’ coaching.
David thank you for making the best out of me - I have been inundated by praise and really it should go to you. What is it they say about sow's ears - well I think you did a great job into making me half decent. I really appreciate the nice touches, which added that all important humour and human touch.
David is an accomplished speaker in his own right and this gives him the credibility to coach others. David balances positive reinforcement with constructive feedback well. His hints, tips and advice and coaching if embraced can enhance any speakers performance.David is confident and has the gravitas to work at senior executive level. What I particularly like is David's desire to be in the shoes of the audience when coaching presenters, this helps speakers crisp up messages, deliver with meaning and enjoy it!
David has been excellent in preparing me for my first Sales and Marketing conference – he has helped me to build my confidence, support me on my key messages and help me develop a presenting style that is natural to me and engaging for the audience. His 1-2-1 coaching style is very relaxed, tailored to your personal style and needs, and with a level of insight that is easy to understand and even easier to implement to help you to improve. He is a great guy with excellent experiences and I will definitely be using him to continue to develop my presenting style.
It was brilliantly funny from start to finish and a lot of those impressions I've never heard people do before. I'm excited about what you're going to do next.
What I loved about this act was that it was really intelligent and different. I loved the way each voice morphed into the next.
Very simple, brilliantly funny from start to finish. Every impression was spot on. It was a faultless audition; I'm very excited about you.
Of all the years we've had impressionists on this show, I genuinely think this is the best and most original act we've had. Absolutely hilarious Darren, a million percent yes!
I worked with Dan for over a year on Sports Recap with "Loveworld TV". It was an absolute pleasure presenting alongside him.Dan is extremely knowledgable about all areas of sport - and we often also delved into the psychological elements of performance.Dan is also a great interviewer - we often worked with guest pundits as well as held live phone-ins - and Dan was great at asking the sort of questions which got the best out of everyone.What I also enjoyed was the consistent professionalism and communication with Dan. He's really natural on camera, and is warm and approachable. We engaged in a lot of positive banter on screen which made the job fun for us, as well as the viewers.I hope we can work together in the near future.
Dan has a great manner and is professional both in front of and behind the camera, bringing reliability and humour. He is able to adapt his presenting style brilliantly to fit the tone of the piece and allows his warmth and passion to transfer onto the screen. Dan also can offer creative input into the filming process and is comfortable with being directed. I am consistently pleased with the outcome of his shoots.
I have worked with Dan on a few occasions and most recently on the touchtennis Masters Cup where he was nestled between Wimbledon sensation Marcus Willis, and the chart-topping worldwide Rap Star Sean Paul where he handled the situation with ease as a presenter and MC.I’ve also worked on radio with him a number of times and upon each occasion he made the interview process relaxing and casual enough to get the best out of me on air, Trust me, that’s no easy task.I would have no hesitation in recommending Dan for TV or Radio work.
Dan has worked for a wide variety of clients doing compering, live shows and walkabout characters. He is great under pressure, a really good improviser, quick witted and always reliable.
