"I want to make a difference and provide access to knowledge that changes lives. I bring a practical, outcomes focused mindset, an appreciation of the importance of having one another’s backs and an insatiable appetite for learning something new. 

A professional Civil Engineer who subsequently trained as a Chartered Accountant, David has quenched his thirst for learning by working alongside some of industry’s most respected leaders.

"My purpose is to make an impact and have an effect, especially to those that have travelled a similar path as me. I want to make a difference and help them navigate the more challenging times of their own journey."

In my view, high performing organisations begin and end with culture. With 20+ years’ experience in operational leadership, I have focused on championing autonomy, mastery and purpose to create teams that are empowered, motivated and engaged. As a result, I have built a portfolio of multi-sector experience delivering major transformation and business improvement, overhauling cultures while implementing the support structures and processes that underpin operational excellence. 

I have a wealth of experience that spans almost thirty years, starting with an incredible career in the Royal Marines.
