Dave, 48, who had viral meningitis in 2012, has been fighting back from his own experience ever since. His enthusiasm for communicating with others knows no bounds; successfully engaging with all ages and via all platforms.
His passion means within seconds he can hook his audience in. He also shares best practice on the way we should be speaking, and connecting, to male audiences – one of the hardest to crack.
He is a spokesperson in his community, speaking from the heart, reinforcing the support that is available from us and giving first-hand feedback on how we helped turn his life round.
Via social media he connects with fundraisers; publishing blogs on training and fundraising, and providing support to those wondering what they’d signed up to. To connect further afield he sets up different Facebook groups for our volunteers.
Dave said of his win: “I’m gobsmacked and it is not very often Hancock is lost for words. Thank you for the nomination. I really genuinely appreciate it. I never ever look for recognition because of my passion for the cause and the charity, but to receive this is so very humbling. Thank you.”
