Dave was without a doubt a major influence on our successes last year, helping us through various transitions. Very forward, very challenging and unafraid to ask the questions you hate to ask yourself.

Creative Lancashire has used Dave as a mentor for creative and digital businesses who come to us for business support time and time again. From a start up business to a multi million pound company, Dave is adept at asking the right questions to get to the root of the problem in order to help the business succeed. He's value driven, passionate about all things design and knows his branding and marketing inside out.
Dave has provided valuable expertise and advice to numerous creative industries enterprises, drawing from his wealth of experience in graphic, web and new media design. Dave's unique and direct approach combined with his developed analytical skills have made a massive difference to our clients. We would happily recommend Dave to organisations and businesses requiring business support, consultation and advice.

Dave was assigned to Slater PR by Creative Lancashire after we asked the simple question - can you help us get more from social networking? Dave didn't give us the answers. And that was to our benefit. Instead, he guided our reading and research, he got us experimenting, got us doing it. His approach suited us. He knows the landscape changes rapidly in this environment, and his strategic approach made it make sense to us. We like to figure things out and then apply our thinking tactically - that's what Dave facilitated. Here's a fact - 35% of traffic to www.lancashirebusinessview.co.uk now comes from our Twitter efforts. Dave has also been the catalyst to us an online video strategy, which will be coming soon.
