Type Of Speaker


David was a delight to listen to and socialise with. His story is an inspiration and the way that he tells it is inspirational. David had time for everyone, was engaging and happy to sign autographs and be photographed with delegates from the minute he arrived to the moment he left. He is a brilliant talent and wonderful man.
