Running an inaugural sportspersons dinner for our small school was always going to be a big task – none more so than finding an appropriate speaker who was going to engage the audience, having them walk away motivated, inspired and challenged in whatever way relevant to their own lives. Dave delivered this and more, evidenced by the number of attendees still talking about his presentation some weeks later.
Dave’s ability to hold the crowds attention with his humility and warm unassuming nature was a pleasure to watch in itself. To categorise Dave as a sportspersons dinner speaker does not do him justice; the motivational and self-reflecting aspect of his accounts and their effects on the audience go far beyond any sportsperson presentations I have witnessed before.
Dave’s openness and the extent of his presentation, mixed with his everyday Aussie bloke nature was well received by all. The support before the dinner with promoting and support material was second to none.
In summary, Dave Alley was a perfect presenter for our sportspersons dinner and we would highly recommend his engagement to organisations that want a stress free presenter that will leave an audience stimulated from the experience of hearing about Dave Alley’s trials and tribulations.

"Dave Alley has changed my life. Ever since meeting him he constantly inspires me to be a better man. His achievements speak for themselves. But more than that he gives everyone he meets 100% of his time. Dave has lots of qualities, he inspires, he motivates and is very knowledgeable and, he listens."
