Type Of Speaker


Everyone absolutely loved Dave’s presentation, and it was great to give our teams a different outlook on how data is evolving in really cool and interactive ways. As always, Dave’s presentation style is engaging, honest and really makes you sit up and listen. We’d love to work with him again.
Rachel Evans – Experian Data Quality

An excellent end. Very thought-provoking and engaging. Fantastic end to the conference. Really enjoyed this session. Left on a high. Great emphasis on how we should really stand for something. Lots to take away from this one. Excellent. Brilliant. Loved the interactive debates – this is just some of the feedback we have already had and I know there will be more of the same!
Tory Gillingham – AMDIS

Dave MC’d a conference I recently produced and did it with professional aplomb. He confidently conducted the stage, engaged the speakers, managed the audience and even filled dead space when the IT failed us. He went over and above what was asked of him. Next time I organise an event, Dave will be my first point of call.
Matt Desmier – Silicon Beach

Dave Birss is a British expert on creativity, advertising, branding and transmedia. Dave taught how to design and produce branded content. The quality of his work was extraordinary, which is why I highly recommend working with him. We hope to have a new opportunity to work with him in the future.
Fernando Acuña Díaz – Universidad Católica de Chile

I knew from the outset David was a talented communicator but his achievements since have quite simply been staggering. He has established himself as one of the most important contemporary voices; helping others understand the scale and complexity of climate change and other important environmental challenges. His depth of experience, his enthusiasm and optimism can not be commended more highly.
Alex Palman – Former Climate Change Communications Manager, DEFRA

To say that the crowd loved him would be a serious understatement. To every corporate event organiser and conference program director out there – do yourself a favour, and hire Dave to speak. It will be one of the best decisions you will make – and your attendees will be thankful.
Vladimir Vulic, Program Director, SPARK.ME
