What Our Customers Think

David is a values driven, reflective and committed individual who is considered to be a valuable member of our team – reflected in the extension of his engagement with INCPAS. He is not afraid to speak his mind and practices an evidence-based approach to decision-making that assists our decision-making and creates powerful arguments for our leadership team.

David helped us identify the value in our Knowledge Management systems and practices. He delivered high energy training and advised on how to improve impact for our design teams.

Really enjoyed the content and the atmosphere David creates with the rare combination of great presentation skills, passion, enthusiasm and broad-mindedness – everything resting on a solid and immense pool of knowledge and experience. I didn’t just get a massive “KM” injection, but also with a great set of tools for making sense of a lot of other important phenomena taking place in our organisational environment.

Amongst all the professional development programmes I have attended over the last 20 years this [5-day executive development session] stands out as the most practical, thought-provoking and enlightening of them all…David’s contagious enthusiasm, genuine passion and solid mastery made this an enjoyable, energising experience.
