The Speaking For Profit Podcast | A show for professional speakers, entrepreneurs & business professionals who speak or sell.

Welcome to the Speaking for Profit Podcast with Jason Reid and Cindy Ashton.

Sep 2, 2016

So speaking isn’t just speaking is it? It’s a performance. Whenever you’re in front of a crowd the energy of the room changes and you have to change with it.

This episode Cindy and Jason welcome a guest whose life has been steeped in stagecraft – speaker, singer and tribute artist Dave Lathangue


Dave began his career in entertainment more than three decades ago, playing bass guitar and singing with numerous bands in London, England. From there he surged into a successful career onstage, moved to Canada and eventually  built up a successful career as an actor, singer and bass player. He amassed numerous credits on television, in film and on stage

In the year 2000, Dave produced a one-man show featuring comedic impersonations of more than 200 musical stars, from Frank Sinatra and Elvis to Freddie Mercury and all three Bee Gees. Although the show was well received from start to finish, it was the rave reviews he received for his impersonation of Tom Jones that led him to expand it into a stand-alone tribute show.

Dave is now considered one of the top five Tom Jones impersonators in the world and has won awards for his work, including the 2012 Las Vegas Celebrity Impersonators Award for top male entertainer.  

In addition to being a performer, Dave is also a professional speaker providing both entertainment and information at events all over North America.

Dave discusses the bridge between speaking and entertainment in the conference and events industry. He gives great tips on how to start a show and draw in an audience as well as revealing one of the best tools to get better at your craft – the video camera.

He also shares some hilarious stories from his career as “Tom Jones” and more.
