Hi, We're Technative

Born from a love of climbing.....

Technative started as a group of friends who love climbing and technology. Between us we had all the equipment and skills to livestream an event so in 2016 we approached the Climbing Works to see if we could stream their International Festival, and the rest as hey say is history. 

Oh OK, you want to know more? Well, we also have a sister brand Technative Solutions, the guys over there are the real tech wizards. They create and install audio visual solutions for corporate clients. Over the last two years since that first, fire (that's another story), fear, excitement and downright fantastic first stream we have grown in both people and experience. You can meet some of the less shy members of our team below. 


Our Team

Meet the guys, girls and gremlins who make up Technative Live. We're a friendly bunch so why not drop us a line and say hi.


Simon Wdasworth

Simon can usually be found on comms making sure everything s working. Director of the company but still very hands on, when he's not directing a show or talking to people like you, he can be found riding one of his bikes or climbing rocks.


Dave Rhodes

Dave is the other Director at Technative and is Mr Tech. What he doesn't know about AV isn't worth knowing. During streams he is often looking for the best action to create replays, to send to the vision mixer. Dave just can't get away from cameras and is often found behind one even in his free time.


Sim Davis

The brains behind all our graphics and custom scoring. As you can see he's not just a whizz at a bit of coding, he's pretty nifty with a kayak too.


Elspeth Yates

Miss Marketing (and producing) as we like to call her, Elspeth ensures we are doing and saying all the right things. If you need a script writing, presenter finding or website building Elspeth is the one to make it happen.


Roaming Dave

There's a special place in everyone's heart for roaming Dave. Starting out as a motor sport cameraman Dave now specialises in wobble free camerawork where others would make you seasick. Often found dangling on a rope in Europe.
