Event date: 
Thu, 21 January 2016 - 19:00

"David spoke to forty of our most important clients at a recent “send-off” dinner for one of our Directors moving to South Africa.

We wanted a speaker who would be insightful, unconventional and a little controversial in their articulation of the issues and opportunities currently facing a country in respect of which a charged and diverse set of views exist. It is a tribute to David’s excellence as a speaker that he was all of these things. Concurrently he was also both very credible, and sufficiently funny to engage his audience absolutely at the end of an excellent (and long) dinner. We are already laying plans to work with him again."

Neil Passmore, CEO, Hannam and Partners
