David Vickery is an experienced event host with a talent for compèring industry award graduation days and company conferences.
Having an MC to host an event is an essential role – linking together all the sections in the days programme, introducing speakers with just the right enthusiasm and professionalism that puts them at ease, whilst at the same time keeping a large audience engaged.
Diana Boulter, owner and founder of DBA Speakers has been representing David Vickery for over 10 years. She works with many renowned guest speakers – including Terry Waite, Betty Bothroyd and Monty Halls – and frequently finds that David Vickery is one of her most popular speakers requested to compère events.
“David is a very polished, friendly and professional presenter who clients can rely upon to host their event with style,” comments Diana. “He has an unflappable ‘can do’ approach that calms even the most nervous of speakers.”
It is David’s attention to detail that clients like most. Diana’s clients know that when hosting their awards ceremony he will have painstakingly researched every detail from how to pronounce each student’s name to timing the links between speeches.
“We always have five star feedback on any of the events that David hosts. He has a real gift to be able to change the pitch and warmth of his voice to match the audience thereby ensuring that they remain engaged. He does his utmost to ensure his well rehearsed script remains true to the running order of the day. As an experienced presenter he will work directly with the organising team on the timing of the breaks to make certain enough time has been allowed for all the audience to get a coffee during a break!” concludes Diana.
