Motivational speaker

David is a superb public speaker who entertains, inspires and motivates, often bringing his audience to laughter and tears in equal measure. He is intelligent, intellectually curious and a great orator on a broad range of subjects. Even when addressing a ‘dry subject’ such as innovation in pharma he brings his subject to life with heartfelt personal anecdotes and a wry and self-deprecating sense of humour.

David has recently been invited to provide a TED talk and appear as a guest speaker at Oxford University when Covid restrictions are lifted.

David appears regularly as a keynote and after dinner speaker at conferences, educational and social events in the UK and overseas. He is best known for his speeches about problem solving, resilience and positivity, but has also proved a big hit when addressing lighter subjects – his ‘Nerd Nite’ speech entitled ‘Owls vs The Terminator’ was one of their most celebrated.

David’s public speaking clients include:

  • Celegene Pharmaceuticals (Overcoming self limited thought processes)
  • NHS Regional Conferences
  • Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin
  • Worcester University
  • Parkinson’s UK
  • Galapagos Conservation Trust
  • The Wellcome Institute

Taking the perfect image is a great quest. The buzz that I get when I achieve it is the culmination of a lot of hard work and problem solving to get inside the fear circle of that animal.
