““Dave is a born entertainer with amazing energy, excitement and dedication. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of knowing, working and experiencing Dave wearing multiple hats – from his days as DJ Shaft that rocked a party to captivating hypno shows, though more serious roles of hypnotherapy, NLP and motivational sessions to a Social Media expert. I truly admire how he has reinvented himself over the years and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge.

In all my dealings, he has always been extremely professional, provided excellent entertainment and partners with us to truly make our events a success. I highly recommend Dave’s services to entertain, educate and motivate.””

“I have known Dave for many years. We actually had dealings together when Channel 4 Radio opened in Ajman June 1997 and broadcast across the UAE. He was then a professional radio presenter and now excels in public speaking whether in the DJ box, or as I saw him, as host in front of huge crowds bringing on James Brown or Beyonce or whoever, the star of the night happened to be. He excels with flair and makes a significant contribution to the night’s in question!
I would certainly recommend him to entertain the crowds at any type of public event. Further more if you happen to be a Corporate Company; He is one heck of a Motivational speaker!

Job well done Dave!”

“I’ve been on Social media for a while but never understood its importance and power. Recently, I attended a Social Media boot camp for Referrals for Life members – wow! I was amazed at WHAT I DIDN’T KNOW! Dave’s simple explanation of the benefits, his vision of the future of this powerful media and tips on “how to” were eye-opening. I have now dedicated more resources to this cost-effective marketing tool.

Dave, my definition of an expert is “anyone who can help a 5-year old understand technical knowledge in simple language” and hats-off – you are an expert in Social Media! I look forward to working closely with you!”

“Dave arranged and hosted a full day work shop for our Middle East and Africa sales team and I must say that he did an exceptional job. His ability to combine professionalism with entertainment is a unique talent.
It should be said that this was still in the early days after a company merger and he managed to inspire the whole team and months after the workshop it was still noticeable.
I am keen to work again with him and recommend him for any motivational workshop.”

“One of the secrets to success, is to surround yourself with successful individuals that push you to excel and hold you accountable.

I have had the privilege to know Dave as a mentor, coach and student. In all arenas Dave inspires you to excellence.

I truly love his ability to provide good sound knowledge. Particularity in his social media and Personal Branding workshops such as The Celebrity Boot Camp and at the same time make it a fun experience.

I launched my business, The Referral Institute Middle East in Jan 2009. A challenging time for anyone. Yet by the end of 2009 I had been recognized as the top producing franchise world wide.

Over the last year Dave has helped me with my personal brand as the Rebel Networker and becoming recognized as The Networking /Referral Markting expert in the GCC.

In no small way do I attribute a great deal of this success to Dave’s influence.

I am always impressed at Dave’s willingness to learn from others,help others, his modesty and his ability to see each “problem “as an opportunity to evolve.

Dave I wish you all the best for the future and I continue to be one of your most ardent supporters and I sincerely hope your friend.”
