Booking Information


"Thank you very much for a great presentation, many people are saying you were the highlight of the 3 day conference – it was pitched just right, with a balance of fact and more importantly humour (especially on the final day)."

FTG Annual Client Conference

"Just to let you know David Bryon went down a storm on Saturday, everyone thought he was brilliant. His handling of the forum in particular made the event. Can you suggest someone similar for next year – although David will be a hard act to follow."


"Thank you again for your excellent presentation and facilitation at our Conference on Saturday. I think that’s the most productive sessions we’ve had, and also one of the most fun ones. We had an excellent response from members, and you should rightly be proud of your presentation skills."

Association of Interior Specialists

"BIG THANKS TO YOU! Feedback from the event has been that this was the best yet. You certainly went down very well. Your Cabin Crew safety briefing was absolutely hysterical. Many thanks, and well done."

Sun Microsystems National Partner Awards

"You did a great job on Thursday night David. It went down very well, with a number of people specifically mentioning your slot as the highlight of the night – many thanks!"

CIHT West Midlands

"We loved having you – thank you for providing such great entertainment as well as running the awards part of the show for us. You made sure that we finished on time and were the perfect host for last night. So a very big thank you from all of us, you really did a terrific job."

IHS Jane's International Awards

"Thanks for doing such a great job, both hosting the awards and the speech after dinner. It was well received by all those I spoke to after the event. You’re a hard act to follow – so we have had to hire an astronaut to host the event in New York next week and I’m already wondering how we can maintain the standard next year!"

Smiths Detection Group Ltd

"I wanted to say thank you to Dave for his speech and hosting our awards dinner. In short, he was absolutely brilliant. David was the first on stage to kick off the awards evening which is not the easiest time to “WOW” guests however he had the audience in stitches within seconds of his performance and continued in delivering the awards seamlessly."

DSA Annual Awards and Dinner

"I have been running this dinner for the past 13 years over which time we have had some very good speakers but only 2 who I could say we’re truly outstanding. The first was Garry Richardson of BBC Sport and the second was Dave Bryon. All of the feedback has been exceptional. A great performance and thank you for working the auction."
