Vow Financial Services
What a great speaker and performer. The message Big Dave gave to the seasoned professionals at the Institute of Management Consultant's Forum was first class (yet again) and when these guys are impressed - say no more! Very happy to recommend Dave as a great speaker, consultant and overall good guy. Worth every cent.
Excellent, Excellent, Excellent! - The extent of just how far Dave Staughton exceeded our expectations cannot be expressed! We are eternally grateful for his massive contribution to the great success of our conference. The guy just seems to know everything and has a unique and thoroughly interesting technique in getting his messages across. Dave went beyond his contracted time and continued to motivate our delegates by contributing to other sessions for hours after his keynote had finished. Without doubt the conference highlight. Don't think - just book him!

Dave was truly fantastic! He was voted best speaker at the conference and all delegates absolutely loved him! An amazing, inspirational, highly intelligent, and very funny human being! The presentation was captivating, informative and left the audience dying for more! I honestly can’t say enough about Dave- he is truly fabulous!
Delorenzo Haircare Conference
Better than excellent! - Big Dave practices what he preaches. There’s no doubt about it. His enthusiasm and comprehensive content motivated both Yokohama Dealers and Staff. Dave’s preparation was amazing. He had 2 meetings with me in the lead-up. He spoke with our dealers in the days prior to his presentations. He checked attended another guest another guest speaker’s presentation on similar content just to make sure his content wouldn’t conflict. He was helpful to my own presentation and future marketing material. He gave 2 presentations that had the whole room interacting and buzzing. Well done Dave.

Excellent, David's knowledge and fluency engaged the audience and had them buzzing. His ability to blend Siemens into the presentation was appreciated and gave credibility to and relevance to his examples and observations. Overall a positive thought provoking and engaging dissertation on sales and sales culture.

Dave is always very inspiring and connects well with the audience by including humour and factual information that truly reached our staff. We have seen great improvements in our business following all the training Dave has given us and our staff. Our function sales have increased 100%. Overall, I can honestly say that Dave was the best presenter I have ever heard. I certainly had high expectations of him but these were exceeded. He is very uplifting and is an inspirational speaker that we will continue to engage to train our staff.

I have never met someone as entertaining as Big Dave. I saw him presenting a few conferences to different crowds. What a spectacular experience it was. I'm very lucky to have met him in Australia and also to have him as my Mentor lately.

I strongly recommend Big Dave's work both as a professional speaker and as a corporate trainer. His dedication to his work, enthusiasm in getting a result for all stakeholders and clients is second to none as is his creativity and knowledge of best business principles, coaching techniques and the marketplace.

Having known Big Dave for many years as friends and fellow members of a CEO Institute syndicate. I can certainly tell you he is an energetic and dynamic motivator, who cares about people and getting results. Dave is a brilliant public speaker/ MC who is fun and very entertaining, or as corporate trainer he is great at whipping up activity and boosting sales. He is a unique character of high integrity and a bigger than life personality. If any business owner/executive seriously wants to improve their bottom line results, Big Dave is the best man to turn to.
Dave tailored our sessions to align with the Vision, Mission & Values within the organisation so this made the sessions very personalised. It has empowered managers and made them think outside the box and provide better working environments. Great tips on recruiting and easy to do practical ideas.
COMMUNITY AT WORK
David made my life easy with his professionalism and easy going nature. Nothing was too hard and he was such a calming influence. He was also great in our breaks and evening events networking with our delegates and passing on his words of wisdom which they thoroughly enjoyed
Dave is a favourite - energetic, compassionate, witty and well researched.
