How I contribute to Student Motorsport
“Hi I’m Chris, and I have the privilege of commentating on motorsport. I'm here to provide information on my experiences in commentating, hosting, presenting, and broadcasting.
I feel very lucky to have had the opportunities that I have thus far experienced, and continue to grab every opportunity that presents itself with both hands and full commitment. I have removed all limits of where this could take me, and am thoroughly enjoying the journey. I have had appreciation shown for how I try to encourage people of all ages to follow their dreams, no matter what they are, as there are many areas of motor sport in particular that they can be involved with, as I have experienced myself."
What I do
"With a University Degree that required weekly presentations, and then providing business presentations since I graduated in 2000, it is fair to say that I am now an experienced presenter, and have taken my passionate presenting style to my childhood favourite sport of motor racing. Despite only starting in 2012, I can already be heard commentating at circuits all over Europe virtually every weekend; presenting/commentating on various television programs (e.g. on Motors TV) or worldwide live internet feeds; and on Downforce UK Radio, This has also led on to me being approached to provide voice over work as a result of the exposure."
More about me
Up until October 2015, Chris could be found providing Sales and IT Consultancy presentations for a software company that he was also a shareholder of, and then weekends saw him paint pictures of the on track action with his words from within some much coveted commentary boxes at top level circuits across Europe. However, now he has set up his own company 'Chris Dawes Comms' which still sees him provide his commentary, an increased level of voice over and hosting/Master of Ceremony work; but now also provides courses to help others increase their confidence and skills at speaking in public, presenting, being interviewed, etc.
