MC & Announcer
Knowledgeable, Relatable, Educational....
are the words that always come up when Dave hosts an event!
Having hosted hundreds of events since 2006, from charity functions to huge Arena Spectaculars, Dave crafts his performance by responding to audiences and connecting emotionally. From tears of joy hearing about his 'never give up' approach to life or to tears of joy in his high-octane animal performances.
There are few announcers that have Dave's breadth, diversity and unique life experiences. Having been a shy outback kid, to a farmer, to an international male model to an open book TV personality, he brings a grounded larrikin streak which captures audiences. He has a simple and poetic style, a love for story telling and an amazing ability to relate to audiences, engaging, entertaining and educating them... not just going from A to B!
Presenting in front of live, and often large, audiences is something Dave has always loved. Over the years he has hosted and presented at hundreds of events, ranging from huge royal shows, corporate functions and charity events.
