Introducing Dave Sharpe
Award Winning Event Host, BBC Broadcaster & Speaker Coach

Helping you deliver memorable meetings and epic events that engage the audience, flow smoothly and run to time

Hi, I’m Dave Sharpe, an award-winning event host, BBC Broadcaster and speaker coach.

Having worked for over two decades in the events industry, I’ve experienced first-hand, exactly what it takes to deliver and host the perfect event.  I’ve spoken at hundreds of events and written speeches for HRH the Princess Royal and several government ministers and captains of industry.

Planners trust me to help them deliver successful meetings and events, and the key to this is a combination of experience, meticulous preparation and attention to detail.  I will talk with the people involved in the planning to get a proper feel for their aims. I understand that every single delegate and audience member deserves to be delighted so I always ask how that outcome is going to be achieved. You certainly won’t find me turning up at the venue half an hour before the start expecting to be briefed. I’ll be there several hours before with the rest of the team, helping with rehearsals, visualising how things will proceed and preparing for every eventuality.

Like you, I believe that meetings and events move us forward. They help us to plan, to progress, to celebrate and to have fun. During the past 25 years I have seen, first hand, that meetings and events are transformational… for people, for companies and for the world. What is more, it is a very rewarding industry to be a part of.

Steven Cartlidge, Managing Director, Lake Chemicals and Minerals Ltd

"When our in-person event was cancelled due to Covid restrictions Dave stepped up to host the Lake Awards from his home set-up. Our team members tuned in remotely from across the UK, but Dave made us feel like we were all in the same room! His energy and charisma brought the event to life and made everyone feel so special. It was a truly memorable occasion due in no small part to Dave’s superb presenting skills.”

Helen Scott, Human Resources Director, Sodexho

"Without Dave's involvement at the rehearsals I have no doubt that the event would not have been the resounding success it was. He quickly became a fundamental part of our team, giving both positive and developmental feedback to our presenters. He suggested changes in a way that people embraced and went well beyond my expectations.”
