Executive Assistant @ Caterpillar Inc., USA
Working with David Steele of Insomnia Events Ltd. takes all the worry off my shoulders. No matter the event’s size or duration, every minute detail is looked after with great skill, unparalleled experience, and tender care. We’ve worked together in Europe and the U.S., and his connections and knowledge are far-reaching and amazing, no matter the city or the setting. My participants always feel secure, are well entertained, and happily oblivious to the detail involved. David is upbeat, attentive, and quick to react to and resolve the inevitable, unpredictable snags or schedule changes. I highly recommend his talents … anywhere, anytime, any size occasion.

David made my event effortless. Not only was he available to provide help and guidance to me, but also went above and beyond to learn about each of my 65 participants. David’s knowledge and professionalism is simply priceless. I will, without a second thought, include David in my next project and highly recommend his services to anyone that wants to ensure their event runs smoothly.

David ran an event at Oakley Court and immediately struck up a rapport with all the team. His friendly, precise and meticulous way of working made everyone want the event to succeed, which it did. He has a very personable nature and believes in building relationships with everyone he comes into contact with which makes working with him an absolute pleasure. I personally look forward to working with him again whenever the opportunity arises.
Carl Scala, Executive Protection Agent, San Francisco Bay, USA
When it comes to David whether it be his social skills, maintaining the logistics to the schedule or adapting to the free flowing movement of the task at hand. He is top notch with what ever he puts his mind to and most certainly accomplishes the mission with a positive attitude. There have been several very long days when working with David and he does not rest until all task are complete and the client/clients are happy. I would only wish that someone of his calibre were present with the past clients that I have worked for. I am certain that things would have run much smoother. David is definitely a great asset to the team.
Zhecho Dobrev, Senior Consultant @ Beyond Philosophy
David was our Event Manager for a 5-day training for 60+ people from with a very demanding global earth-moving equipment manufacturer. The task to keep 60 people happy for 5 long days was tremendous but David made sure all our needs were taken care of. He also connected on a personal level with everyone in the group. As a consultant I’ve spent many days and nights in hotels around the world but David is the best professional from the hospitality industry that I’ve met!
Civil Servant @ British Government
David’s contribution in and around the logistics of making the sessions happen has been invaluable. From the invitation letters through to the bookings, his professionalism and dedication was well recognised. My very best wishes for the future in whatever role David takes on.
