Dave Straw

Lead Consultant

Dave joined Two Circles in March 2020, bringing with him seven years’ of rights holder and venue experience. Before joining Two Circles, he spent three years as London Stadium’s marketing & communications lead. Responsible for building the marketing function for the former Olympic stadium, Dave was part of the team tasked with delivering and selling out the venue’s major events programme including the World Athletics and ParaAthletics Championships, MLB London Series, concerts, and much more. Prior to London Stadium, Dave spent four seasons at Trent Bridge, driving record attendances and revenues across Membership, international and domestic cricket.

He graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a masters in journalism and designs to be a music journalist, and was a mainstay of the rock press in the East Midlands before moving to the capital. The move offered fewer journalistic opportunities but did result in walking into Slash from Guns N’Roses in a corridor at London Stadium.

Growing up in Aberystwyth, he represented Wales in kayak polo as a teen, and coached across four sports including mountain climbing, football and kayaking. Dave has laid claim to being Two Circles’ only professional wrestler, gym-goer and live music aficionado.
