In addition, he has authored numerous book chapters on various aspects of the business of sport, sport management, sport education, event management, sport marketing and is currently researching and writing a number of books. Dave has also disseminated much of his non-commercially sensitive work through industry and academic conference presentations and is widely regarded as pre-eminent in the field of online sport business education having developed the world’s first, fully online sport business course. Dave is often called upon as an ad hoc commentator on the business of sport by international news organisations including the BBC, ABC, and Reuters.

Dave recently left Southern Cross University to pursue his consultancy work on a full time basis with a clear intention to synthesise his sport business/sport research/sport education knowledge. Dave’s major specialisations within the sport business sector are research, education, strategy and sport organisation. He revels in short to medium term projects that have the potential to make a difference.
