Dr Dave Bryon is the former Managing Director of the airline bmibaby, which grew to become one of Europe's largest low cost carriers flying over 4 million passengers each year. It was sold to the IAG Group in 2012.


He now has a successful media career that includes an after-dinner comedy routine (based around flying), business keynote presentations, awards evening host, and MC for charity events & auctions. He is represented by all the leading speaker agencies in the UK, and has performed across Europe & the Middle East including Moscow, Dubai, Kuwait and Hull.


Following a recent mid-life crisis (his third), Dave decided to try his hand on the stand-up comedy circuit. He now appears regularly at comedy clubs across the Midlands, and MCs several venues in his home town of Burton on Trent with FunhouseComedy.


Dave is also a successful writer, including a regular humour column in the Burton Mail. He has just completed his first film script entitled One More Shot, which follows four alcoholics on a twelve week rehab journey at a residential treatment centre (Dave is a trustee of the O'Connor Gateway Charitable Trust, which supports people in recovery from addiction).

Dave has also developed a successful speaker training workshop designed to improve the communication & delivery skills of corporate professionals. Oh, and he has a degree and PhD in Geology from the University of Liverpool (Dr of Rocks... not much call for them, it appears). Dave lives in Burton on Trent, and is a Vice-president of Burton Albion Football Club.
