Dave is a legend. He knows his stuff and is one of the great thinkers in the digital space. He is a sought-after speaker and educator. It’s rare that you get a consultant with an intellectual edge in the social media space – and this is what Dave brings. We are lucky to have him in this country. Matthew Buckland | Memeburn, Creative Spark

Dave is nothing less than an inspiration. 

Combining deep knowledge with optimism, humility and a passionate commitment to results, Dave is a brilliant educator that makes an impact on the lives of the people and organisations he works with. He certainly made an enormous impact on Ogilvy Cape Town, from where, under Dave's Directorship we birthed the Ogilvy Digital Marketing Academy. An idea that became a programme that turned into a business. A business that Dave leads. 

Dave teaches to learn; his thirst for knowledge and openness to feedback, means his ideas don't just manifest, but also get better over time. 

And these are just some of the reasons why you don't just recommend Dave, but rather shout from the rooftops about him Gavin Levinsohn, MD Ogilvy Cape Town
