"Dave was our Master of Ceremonies for the Professional Convention Management Association’s Canadian Innovation Conference which took place in Victoria in November 2018. To say he thrilled our audience and exceeded all expectations is an understatement!
His quick wit, talent, charm and kind-hearted nature not only endeared him to our audience but made all delegates feel a part of something special. Dave was an absolute pleasure to work with and we can’t wait until the next opportunity!"

"Dave, your presentation was EXACTLY what I wanted and what was needed! I cannot count how many people came to me to let me know how much they appreciated your 'show'.
It was amazing, it got us thinking and we got a good laugh."
