Your Storytelling Guide...
David helps global clients institute profound practices for leadership engagement that encourages all people to be the source of change - rather than its victims or objects. This, he suggests, is not a top-down or even bottom-up shift, but an inside-out one.
Current and recent clients include Jardine Matheson, Campbell, Mars Inc, Pepsi, Softys, and the International Olympic Committee. He works largely VP, C-Suite, and HIPO Emerging leaders.
As an expert in human communication, he has been engaged on programs that are seen as ‘the jewel in the crown’ for clients’ leadership development. For Unilever, he helped design and co-facilitate – alongside Professor Jan Hammond of Harvard – the APP course, which ran 15 times over 11 years. For Mars, he has played a key role in the year-long Supply Leadership Development Program, which has run annually since 2011.
David’s books are a provocative complement to traditional thinking about leadership and business, and include Unconditional Communication, How to Make Work Fun!, The Corporate Fool and the subject of his TEDx talk, Change Your World One Word at a Time.
Born near Leeds in the UK, he now lives in Colorado with the love of his life, Keri, and has three sons, Oliver, Sam and Alex..
