Dave Stewart is recognised as both an accomplished musician and one of the most respected multi-media entrepreneurs in the music industry, and is well-renowned throughout the industry as an author, filmmaker, photographer, producer, director and philanthropist.
He established Weapons of Mass Entertainment (WME), which was set up in order to link creative ideas to music, television, film, new media, theatre and book projects, and which was described by The LA Times as a “media company for the new world”.
And this was just one part of Stewart’s innovation. Working with Microsoft’s co-founder Paul Allen, they created a successful multimedia creative centre and members’ club in London – The Hospital Club – and with Mark Simmons he released a business book entitled ‘The Business Playground’.
In 2015 he launched the First Artist Bank, aiming to provide artists with a one-stop shop for money management, monetization and product marketing.
As well as his entrepreneurial pursuits, Stewart is also a tireless campaigner for charity, and has worked with a number of causes.
As a result of his work and experiences, he is a superb public speaker and regularly advises businesses and corporations about innovation and creativity, using his talents as an acclaimed public speaker to inspire worldwide audiences.
"Dave is who we all want to be - living his dream and actually changing the world every day with his gentle inspirational genius." Visa International
"Captain Dave is a dreamer and a fearless innovator, a visionary of high order, very delicately tractable on the surface but beneath that, he's a slamming, thumping, battering ram, very mystical but rational and sensitive when it comes to the hot irons of art forms. An explosive musician, deft guitar player, innately recognizes the genius in other people and puts it into play without being manipulative. With him, there's mercifully no reality to yesterday. He is incredibly gracious and soulful, can command the ship and steer the course, dragger, trawler or man of war, Captain Dave." Bob Dylan
"Innovation requires vision, intuition, courage and ability to see what others don't see. Dave has them all." Nokia
"Jack of All Trades, Master of All of Them.”
The Sunday Times
"When I met Dave in September of 2000, he talked for 12 hours about the impact of digitalization on the production and distribution of media. As a banker, I didn't know what the hell he was talking about - nor did anyone else. Over the next five years, we all found out." Credit Suisse Europe, Middle East and Africa
