The Magic

Clients and others often say things like “get David to work his magic” and find the results “amazing”. It’s not magic, of course, but learned skills (over a long period of time admittedly), combined with a certain “real” or “authentic” presence. The combination is very important. David has an equally strong expertise in the human side of working life and the professional or business side, resulting in clear, powerful, and—crucially and unusually—holistic insights. His personal contribution to the field is The Relationship Mastery Formula—a systematic approach to professional relationship skills—the subject of his book.

The combination of skills and presence is key to the leverage David is able to bring to bear on your issues. Specifically, he has expertise in:

  • Engineering
  • Project and programme management
  • Business leadership and board experience
  • Systems thinking
  • Organisational learning, change and growth
  • Sales, marketing and the spread of ideas
  • NLP
  • Techniques of dialogue and participatory leadership
  • Symbolic modelling and “clean” language
  • Practical psychology
  • Mediation
  • Timeless wisdom from the Tao Te Ching and more
  • Leadership, with or without authority

The specific benefits depend on the situation and the channel of delivery, and could be:-

Growth for business owner-managers
Leverage for engineering, projects, manufacturing organisations
Clarity, insight, and inspiration for your audience
Transformational learning for you personally
