“David Harper is a consummate professional and an excellent speaker. He was guest speaker at a dinner event I organised last year. His entertaining manner and knowledge of his subject was a treat and, without exception, everyone I spoke to afterwards said it was one of the best after dinner talks and display of expertise they had experienced. Thoroughly recommended.”

I was delighted to ask David Harper to join us at my annual fundraising dinner at Lords Cricket Ground. Thank you David for conducting our live auction with fantastic results and great humour. You had the room buzzing and everybody was talking about it afterwards. We loved the way you did it – a super super job and look forward to speaking to you soon about next year’s events.”

“David hosted the Witham Showcase of Talent extremely successfully. His charm, humour, storytelling, interaction with the audience and enthusiasm set the tone for a great event. His management of the auction section was a real joy, extremely entertaining and raised double the value of the objects. David was also very helpful with his support in the PR activities. I’d highly recommend David Harper as a host or public speaker at your event.”
