He has led in the development of business plans, strategies, and tactics for a number of organisations in the last 12 years. He is responsible for the development and implementation of a full range of policies and practices in his own business.

    "Dave is an excellent communicator and influences with credibility and integrity. I have admired his ability to quickly assimilate information which he skilfully uses to propose pragmatic solutions based upon sound insight and analysis. I have witnessed at first hand his dedication, focus and drive. Always supportive and ready to lend a listening ear, Dave is able to maintain a sense of the big picture whilst remaining dedicated to the individual.

    “I wholeheartedly recommend him as any organisation Dave works with will reap the benefits of his many fine leadership traits, business skills and personal attributes."
