David loves to immerse himself in your conference, tailoring a comedy character (or more) that may appear throughout the event, offering fun that is integrated in with the topic of the day. There is usually a strong interactive and experiential component to his work.

As an experienced improviser, David's work is very responsive to what is going on at the conference. Typically he will do an opening comedy piece on stage, rove during breaks, and then summarise the day in the closing plenery or dinner. . . always bringing love and laughter to your event.

David's conference offerings

  Character performance
Character based ‘stand-up’ presentations themed to your event, with improvised responses to the material of the day. Characters can also rove in tea-breaks or at expos, etc. Meet the cast >

Hoax Presentations
Cheeky ‘Impostor’ keynote presentations that provide a clever laugh, and provoke deeper thinking. Typically a 'straight man' posing as a reputable researcher or government official - but things are slowly revealed to be not as they seem.

MCing your events, forums either in character or as a straight man.

Eliciting creative ideas from the group that can be later workshopped into strategies and action plans.

Comedy Networking Events
David's characters can facilitate fun speed networking events that include simple audience interactive moments that are themed to your event. [see 'Cosmic Speed Networking']

Warm-ups and fillers
Exercises, games and improvised moments to enliven our bodies and minds.

Live themed music
Collaborative music that is created live, themed to the conference content.

Injecting Life into the program . . .

Having worked in the corporate sector as a marketeer and facilitator, David has a good knack for quickly absorbing the concepts, language and nuances of particular groups. He creates customised characters and presentations that fit the industry and culture of your event.

Consider the group energy of a 'run-of-the-mill' day of powerpoint presentations . .

By comparison, David can help you create an inspired event that is infused with humour and integrated physical activities leaving the audience feeling more connected with the material and uplifted . .
