“Dave Coplin delivered an inspiring and engaging keynote at our PPMA National Conference attended by over 300 Chief Executives, senior directors, managers and guests from across the UK and North America. From the start of the keynote until the end, Dave created an interactive environment that kept the delegates engaged throughout, with his informative and enthusiastic delivery. Feedback from delegates has been amazing and I’ve had many comments from many delegates about how much they enjoyed Dave’s session…. it was funny, enlightening, thought-provoking, entertaining and educational.
I look forward to working with Dave more in the future, and to seeing him present at another Conference soon”.
