What Our Customers Think

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.

Excellent good practice/keynote opener to a key expert meeting of International Organisations (EU, UN etc.). Excellent for a peer assist/learning event and community of practice establishment.

“Do NOT invest in this resource if you are looking to enjoy your current challenges over and over again. This book is chock full of practical information and checklists for competencies often overlooked. I highly recommend it for every CPA interested in furthering their own development, and that of their organization.”

David cut to the heart of the problem and got us to see beyond our old ways of thinking. Highly recommended advisory and training services.
