Team Member profile for David Tolputt
David initially forged a 10 year career in the hospitality sector and during this time graduated with a degree in Hospitality Management & Catering from Manchester Metropolitan University. Having gained huge amounts of experience running events at venues during this time and the operational processes which make events come to life in 2005 David decided to follow a career in B2B sales and has never looked back!
Initially David sold delegate places to FTSE250 decision makers for hosted buyer events and transitioned into a sponsorship sales role at the same company, then moved into business development for a marketing and events agency. Before arriving at Events & PR in 2019 as National Sales Manager for the SME National Business Awards, David spent 11 years working for an exhibition organiser where he developed and launched numerous large scale national consumer exhibitions including the Allergy & Free From Show. David is really excited by the role at Events & PR and is looking forward to the challenge Damian has set of doubling the size of the business each year over the next 4 years!
Outside of work David is busy with his family and two sons and you’ll usually find him stood next to a football pitch watching his kids train / play matches, or at Selhurst Park watching his beloved Crystal Palace Football Club. When he’s not watching football, David follows motorsport including Formula 1, is a regular attendee of British Touring Car races and has a passion for music with an eclectic taste of different genres.
