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 in conjunction with FunhouseComedy.


Dave is also a successful writer, including humour columns for newspapers in the UK and previously in the US while living in South Carolina. He has also developed a successful speaker training workshop designed to improve the communication & delivery skills of corporate professionals. 

Dave lives in Burton on Trent and is an avid supporter of Burton Albion Football Club. He is also a BSUPA Level 2 stand-up paddleboard (SUP) instructor, teaching a range of classes on the River Trent and other waterways across the Midlands.

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).
