Daniel Davies

chief executive of Rockpoint Leisure

As a Merseyside-based entrepreneur, Daniel Davies is the CEO of Rockpoint Leisure, and the former CEO and founder of CPL Training Group, one of the UK’s leading learning and development companies.

Under Davies’ leadership, CPL Training Group grew into one of the most trusted brands in the market, delivering a broad range of services, from face-to-face training to licensing applications.

Following the sale of CPL Online in early 2018 and CPL Training in May 2019, Davies has embarked on a new business venture ‘Rockpoint Leisure’. It is through this vehicle that he is breathing new life into his local coastal community in New Brighton, Wirral through a private sector-led, regeneration scheme, which was born out of a personal passion for the town, its history and for the future of the people who live, work and visit the town.

In February 2015 Daniel was appointed Chairman of the Institute of Licensing succeeding Jon Collins. He also sits on the Council and House Committees of UKHospitality.

Davies is an active member of Amnesty International and is passionate about animal welfare.

Pubs as heart of the community – delivering on the promise. Dan will speak about a progressive partnership with Punch on his latest project, designed to reinvigorate the seaside town of New Brighton in the Wirral peninsula.
