Dale has been heavily involved in fundraising projects for charity Springboard UK for many years who focus on creating careers in the leisure, hospitality and events industries for the underprivileged and long term unemployed - it was announced this year that drp have raised over £1million in their time working with the charity.

Steve Garvey, Chair of EVCOM and colleague of Dale’s said the following of his inclusion on the list “Dale is one of the most influential people in the industry because he leads by example in delivering results for clients. Dale understands that live and experiential communication should be driven by achieving measurable business impact, and he has built drp group into a powerhouse that can deliver every aspect of a project from the group's own resources. drp’s consistent growth rate demonstrates the effectiveness of this fully integrated offering, and has spawned many emulators around the industry."
