Speaking References

“We had the pleasure of having Dave speak at a recent senior executive function. He completely captured everyone’s attention right from the start. Dave is a true inspiration who speaks honestly and completely from the heart. His passion and determination to complete and attempt unimaginable feats and in the name of raising money for men’s mental health is truly uplifting. We wish Dave all the very best for future adventures and would like to support him on-going the best way we can.”

Justin Hart – Young Presidents Organisation

“Dave is an inspirational, motivational and engaging speaker. He presented to a group of us on Motuihe Island recently, and the feedback was excellent. He is funny, real, and polished in his performance. I would recommend him for any corporate, sporting, school other group wanting to learn about resilience, personal development and the importance of hard work”

Robert Bruce, Founder, Got To Get Out (adventure group)”

“Dave was a guest presenter at a monthly club meeting attended by a range of outdoor enthusiasts. Dave has the natural ability to capture an audience through his honest and sincere portrayal of his achievements and adventures. The Audience were engaged throughout the talk and months later still comment on Dave’s ability to entertain. He shared with us the highpoints as well as the low points of his adventures over the last few years in an inspirational and humorous way. Throughout his talk he included powerful messages about the importance of self-belief, determination and sheer effort to achieve your goals whatever they may be. I would have no hesitations in recommending Dave as a speaker for your event.”

Sarah Best – NZAC Auckland Section meetings coordinator.

“Dave spoke with our YPO New Zealand Chapter on his Sea2Summit7 goals. Dave captivated the audience with the challenges he overcame to reach the summits and on the occasions where the mountain forced him back, his feelings of failure and learnings for the future. Dave was an extremely honest speaker who applied what he learnt to the audience and challenged us all to seek out our own summits and to not fear failure. I highly recommend Dave as a speaker.”
