Consultation and full service provision.

I’d love to connect and talk about your business needs.  Who knows, we may just hit it off and create great things together. I promise you this, if I can’t help you solve your problem, I’ll let you know, and work to find other possible solutions.  So, let’s chat!

 Oh, and yes, I know it’s a little unconventional for one person to offer an array of services like this, but I’m not your conventional guy. You’ll discover by my broad work experience, that I’ve worked and trained in many things. (My wife thinks I was handed too much curiosity at birth!)

Workshops and Facilitation

Perhaps you’re considering a planning day, leadership retreat, leadership training session or ideation workshop. Whatever if it is, I can probably help. I have hundreds (if not thousands) of hours experience in front of audiences.  I have taught and run workshops all over Asia Pacific with great success and feedback. 

I’m a big believer in treating adult learners like adults, working with the assumption that they know valuable things and, unlike school-aged kids, want to interact and add to the discussion.  This adult learning approach is called Andragogy. 

Testimonials

David both trained and mentored me personally. His empowering, intuitive approach has been life-changing on many levels for me and his encouragement and support has contributed to many of my achievements and successes.
