“Derek’s understanding of a clients needs, fast turnaround and innovative diverse style never misses the mark.”
“Your professionalism in handling interviews with members of the United States Congress and a Pentagon official brought out a clear and succinct presentation of the importance of Thorium Power’s technology... It was a pleasure working with you”
“We always have five star feedback on any of the events that David hosts. He has a real gift to be able to change the pitch and warmth of his voice to match the audience thereby ensuring that they remain engaged. David is a very polished, friendly and professional presenter who clients can rely upon to host their event with style... He has an unflappable ‘can do’ approach that calms even the most nervous of speakers”
“I have worked with David for many years and collaborated on many projects. What stands out is David's professionalism to deliver and his unflappable nature. He builds confidence, gets the job done and importantly always adds enormous value to any project. I would have no hesitation in recommending David to any client, either big or small.”
"I worked with David at LBC. He is a thoughtful and powerful communicator with great ideas and drive. David and I have since collaborated on other projects where he provided strong support and wise counsel."
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.
