I can help your event run smoothly
MY WORK BEGINS WAY BEFORE YOU HAND ME THE MICROPHONE
Dave delivered well beyond my expectations
“Without Dave’s involvement at the event I have no doubt that it 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 all of our presenters and delivering well beyond my expectations.”
Helen Scott, Human Resources Director, Sodexo (UK and Worldwide)
I was very impressed with his presentation and the way he kept things running smoothly
“I get invited to a lot of events and after a while they all become very similar! However, I recently attended an event and saw Dave in action for the first time and I must say I was very impressed with his presentation and the way he kept things running smoothly. It was all done in such a professional, engaging and light hearted way… first class!”
Geoff Cousins, Managing Director, Jaguar UK
Dave gave the whole weekend a professional edge
“For the official opening of the Ricoh Arena,UK, we organised a complex combination of events, including a prestigious black tie gala dinner for 250 VIP guests followed by a public open day that attracted over 13,000 visitors.
I employed Dave Sharpe as my principal emcee for both the evening dinner and the official public opening the following day. The way Dave handled our dignitaries, Dame Kelly Holmes, Sir Trevor Brooking and Richard Caborn MP, was exemplary. He gave the whole weekend a very professional edge and I would certainly recommend his services to other organisations and I will, of course, use him again here at the Ricoh Arena.”
Daniel Gidney, Chief Executive, Ricoh Arena, Coventry, UK
An event organisers dream!
“From the moment Dave arrived he got involved and instinctively glued all the acts together so we could run the show seamlessly. The evening’s entertainment was full on and Dave handled the pressure without making a fuss and kept a calm head. An event organiser’s dream! Thank you Dave for making my life just that little bit easier… you’re a joy to work with and professional through and through.”
Karen Tanner, Managing Director, Events By Karen Tanner (UK)
Dave was professional from the outset and provided a fantastic running commentary throughout the event
“We engaged Dave Sharpe as our commentator for a dragon boat racing event at Wyboston Lakes, as part of our summer conference. 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. I would happily work with Dave again on future events and would not hesitate to recommend his services.”
Richard Owen-Hughes, Group Marketing Director, Driver Hire Nationwide (UK)
Dave connects with the audience, the organisers and speakers to create a smooth, flowing and successful event
“Over the years I have worked with many MCs and link facilitators and Dave Sharpe is simply one of the best. Totally professional and organised, he connects with the audience, the organisers and speakers to create a smooth, flowing and successful event. I would highly recommend him to anyone organising a charity dinner or conference.”
Frank Furness CSP, International Speaker and Coach (UK and South Africa)
Dave’s delivery was always spot on and the humor was so well timed
“I knew when I saw you at The European Meetings and Events Conference in Turkey that you were the right face and personality for the World Education Congress. And you exceeded our expectations. Your delivery was always spot on and the humor was so well timed. Thanks for helping to make WEC 2014 one of our strongest conferences ever. We look forward to the continued opportunity to work together!”
Cindy D’Aoust, Chief Operating Officer at Meeting Professionals International (USA)
Our audience loved Dave and I think he’s a celebrity in the US now!
“On behalf of the entire Meeting Professionals International team, I want to thank you for your involvement in the World Education Congress 2014. From the initial preparation sessions we had over Skype weeks before the event, through to the on-site rehearsals, late night planning meetings and excellent facilitation of all our main stage activities… you were absolutely brilliant.
I firmly believe your great personality, combined with your absolute dedication and excellent delivery style contributed significantly to the success of this event. Our audience loved you and I think you are a celebrity in the US now!
Thank you for all the effort and great work you put into the success of this MPI show. As you know, this group of participants is comprised of corporate, association and governmental planners and suppliers from across the industry and they are an extremely demanding audience. But the feedback has been extremely positive and you have contributed largely to this success.”
Miranda van Bruck, Team Leader Education, Meeting Professionals International (Holland)
Dave’s ability to improvise is amazing. He interacted with each speaker and the audience in ways that looked like he had rehearsed for days
“Dave is the consummate professional and a superb master of ceremonies.
I met him at the MPI World Education Congress where he had one of the most difficult jobs any presenter can have… motivating and entertaining professional meeting planners from around the globe during four days of presentations.
Dave had the audience laughing and looking forward to each session and speaker. He got the crowd excited and, because he did his homework, each introduction was highly personalized and relevant.
His ability to improvise is amazing as he interacted with each speaker and the audience in ways that looked like he had rehearsed for days, when in reality, he just met each of us for a few moments prior to going on stage.
If you’re looking for someone who can take your meeting to the next level, get everyone smiling, and ensuring all attendees are paying attention and excited, then Dave is your man!”
Sam Richter, CSP, Best-Selling Author and Top-Rated Social Selling Speaker and Trainer to Sales and Business Executives Worldwide (USA)

He has a great voice, is quick on his feet and has a real sense of keeping the focus where it needs to be
“Dave was our emcee for all the general sessions, and he’s great! He has a great voice, is quick on his feet and has a real sense of keeping the focus where it needs to be (must be his journalism background) Absolutely terrific!”
Cindy M. Hartner, CSEP, Director of Global Sales, DMC Network, LLC (USA)
