  • Persuading top celebrities to starve themselves on a desert island whilst being bitten to death by sand flies for no money requires a certain skill.  David not only managed this but they are still all talking to him now!

    Tanya Shaw Managing Director, Shine TV
  • I have worked with David for the past decade and he is, without doubt, the best in the business. From The Friday Night Project to Chris Moyles’ Quiz Night and Duck Quacks Don’t Echo, David has consistently delivered guests of the very highest calibre for us. His judgement is always spot-on and he is ice-calm under pressure – exactly what you need in a Head of Talent. David has been integral to our success and I would recommend him unreservedly.

    Andy Auerbach Executive Producer and Managing Director, Magnum Media.
  • David is a top rate Celebrity Producer with huge experience, a calm head and a great work ethic. During his time at Talkback he booked on shows with a variety of scales and is equally adept at big budget bookings as well as smaller projects. He is a strong negotiator and with the contacts he has I’d recommend him for all your booking needs.

    Leon Wilson Managing Director, Talkback
  • Not only can David book the biggest celebrity names around he also has a great eye for the interesting and unusual bookings and the overall chemistry of the line-up he is putting together. What’s more he also goes the extra mile to ensure that the talent he’s booked are looked after correctly. He asks the right questions, listens to what you want and then gets the job done with the minimum of fuss. I couldn’t recommend him more highly.

    Michael Livingstone Executive Producer and Manager Director, 2LE Media
  • With a returning series, the stakes get higher especially when it comes to the casting – the make or break of any production.  David rose to the challenge with intelligent and often surprising names. Calm under pressure, he managed to keep all the plates spinning and ultimately delivered a diverse and fascinating group of people. Thank you David, I look forward to working with you again soon!
