TESTIMONIALS

David did an excellent job in co-ordinating, organising and chairing the Chasing Ice outdoor film screening and Climate Change Question Time events in Durham.  The choice of venue and message were ideal as it helped reach groups who are traditionally difficult to engage with, and encouraged them to get involved with some of the problems we are facing because of climate change.

In all my years of working with youth, I've never been more impressed with ones preparation and impact. David took a very loaded topic and creatively spun it in a way you can't NOT care about climate change. His delivery on stage was sheer perfection. Jaws are still dropping around the world. In only 18 minutes, he redefined an issue and brought it to the forefront of everyones life.

David was scouted as international speaker for TED talks. It was a pleasure to work with him, he is eager to learn, to improve and to inspire his audience every time. The world needs speakers like David.  

Don´t hesitate to book him, in my opinion you will do your audience a great favour by having David on your stage!
