DAVE THOMAS - FOUNDER AND HEAD OF VOICE

Over the last decade, Dave has accumulated over 20,000 training hours with a diverse range of clients, from young offenders to professional athletes and celebrities.

As a founding trustee of Sky Sports’ School Of Hard Knocks, and also as the driving force behind our own charity arm FIT, Dave represents everything it means to be a member of The Foundry family.
