David Meade Events, run by renowned speaker and broadcaster David Meade, who is from Rathfriland, has expanded following a period of massive growth.
The events company has seen double figure growth every year since its establishment in 2012 and this year sees an investment of over £250,000, including new video learning services, enabling people to access training remotely.
The company delivers high end corporate events, learning and development workshops, and offers keynote speaking services and with its team of 10 is expected to achieve turnover of £2 million in 2019.
The company has also developed a bespoke in house video production studio to enhance its capacity to produce media projects for a host of international clients.
David Meade delivers more than 160 events per year to a range of blue-chip companies and last year visited more than 40 countries.
Clients include Apple, Harvard, Mercedes Benz, Adobe, Bank of America, Coca Cola, British Airways and Canon.
David Meade commented:
“We’ve been delivering events and keynote speeches very successfully in the UK and Ireland but deciding to take our work outside of that space has really been a tremendous leap for us and one that has paid off year on year.
“The investment in our video learning service will further our international presence. We are part of a global economy now, not just a local one so this will allow us to work with clients all over the world.
“Over the last number of years, the company has grown at a staggering rate and this latest investment is a response to that growth.
“We are still based in Northern Ireland, but there is a huge untapped market which we are keen to explore further. So far in 2019 we have contracts in 10 countries, including Dubai, Singapore and Switzerland and many more are in the pipeline.
“As the company continues to thrive with year on year growth, I am constantly looking at new and innovative ways to keep up with demand.
“If the uncertainty of today’s marketplace teaches us anything, it’s that you must evolve and that’s what we’re doing – keeping up with the ever-changing market and meeting the ever-increasing demands, both at home and across the globe.”
