European Meetings & Events Conference 2014, Istanbul, Turkey

Introducing Dave Sharpe

I have been working with meeting and event planners and those involved in running conferences, award ceremonies and business seminars for over 20 years. I am also a respected presenter with the BBC and can regularly be heard reporting on football matches and contributing to sports shows on UK radio.

During my career as an award-winning Master of Ceremonies, I have worked with the Royal Family, members of the UK Government and a host of industry leaders and VIPs from the world of business, television and sport.

With clients in the UK, Europe and Worldwide, I am experienced and professional… ensuring your event engages the audience, flows smoothly and runs to time.

“Dave was professional from the outset and provided a fantastic running commentary throughout the three hours of the event.

He was involved but unobtrusive, and his contribution played a big part in creating the great atmosphere of the event.”

How can I help you?

I appreciate that being the perfect Master of Ceremonies isn’t simply about turning up, standing on stage and doing the introductions. It can involve meeting the organisers beforehand, working with them to understand their objectives, and helping to create an event that exceeds expectations.

If required, I can make suggestions on how to get key messages across and advise on ways to guarantee your event flows smoothly and runs to time. He can also offer a creative input to ensure the occasion is memorable for all the right reasons!

During rehearsals and set-up I can take the pressure off the event organiser, and my tailored programme script will provide the necessary link between the venue, the host, the organiser and the AV, lighting and technical team.

Should you require additional help, I offer a range of support services, including presentation coaching and event programme planning and design.
