As an aside, you’ll have lots of fun and laughter working with David. He’s warm-hearted and gets a real buzz out of seeing others succeed.
David lives in Essex in England with his family and exuberant (and at times insane) Springer Spaniel. In his spare time, David likes to play squash, watch motorsport, indulge in a glass of fine wine or tackle the downhill on a pair of skis. He’s partial to a game of golf, but he’s not any good at it.
In late 2020 David Co-founded UniEE (University of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs), then shortly afterwards David and Nick launched ChatBox Productions. Chatbox Productions – ‘the home of conversation’ is a company born from the pandemic and was founded by business owners David Bell and Nick Looby. They answer the need for support, information, entertainment, and discussion in both business and public arenas.
