Dan has worked extensively across corporate South Africa on a range of events, from conferences and launches, to team-building sessions and expos, and has a keen understanding of how to relate to brands, and the objectives of corporate events.
In early 2013 Dan hosted the Spur Group’s conference at Sun City for three days, sharing the stage with Clem Sunter, Justice Malala and Gary Kirsten, as well as Spur founder Allen Ambor, in front of an audience of over 700 people. Dan has also worked on a similar conference for Nashua Mobile.
Other corporate events include the launch of Miravel Wine Estate in Somerset West, the annual two-day BMG Engineering Expo, the official re-launch of property group Chelsea Manhattan as the South African division of Colliers International, former ABSA CEO Steve Booysen’s executive team-building event, and a Lucas Radebe benefit dinner with FNB.
Dan has also served as MC at the Aylesford Constantia Sauvignon Blanc Festival, and in 2013 hosted the official launch of the Vodacom Super Rugby season at Vodaworld.
“I would like to thank you most sincerely for the brilliant job you did as MC at our Raymond Ackerman Golf Academy golf day. I’ve had wonderful feedback and I just hope you enjoyed the day as much as we all did. The success of the day was in no small way thanks to your contribution. Many thanks for all you did.”

“Dan was MC at Spur’s Convention held earlier this year, in Sun City. His professionalism, presence and coordination contributed towards the overall success of the conference. He interacted well with our guest speakers and created a highly professional platform from which they could conduct their presentation”
– Pierre van Tonder, CEO, Spur Group
“Dan is the consummate professional and he has been instrumental in the success of many of our sponsorship events at Absa. His easy going demeanour puts everyone at ease, he is well prepared and always represents our brand authentically. His uncanny ability to read and engage with different audiences, adapt the message accordingly and, where necessary, inject humour and wit have ensured that we will invite him back to work with us time and time again.”
