Colin appeared as the keynote speaker ‘Dave Childs’, an industry award winner and gave an overview of his life in the exhibition and hospitality industry. The audience was very attentive and as “Dave” reminisced more were amazed at his knowledge of both the industry and the in depth comments of many in the audience. The address built up to be hilarious and days later people were still talking about “Dave” and how they needed ‘staff like him”.
