"I had the good pleasure of working with David when he was Chairman of IoD Surrey and then subsequently when he was nominated to represent the IoD as South Regional Chairman.
He is one of the best connected, helpful and humble people I have ever had the good fortune to work with. A key testament to his success is his ability to build a great team around him and engage with a wide range of strategic partners.
David's also one of the sharpest minds I have come across, so it was a real pleasure and privilege to work with the best!"

"I have worked with David for a number of years now. I was in a position whereI was fortunate enough to be able to take over my family business and whilst I didn't want to do anything different in terms of the business, I did want to do things differently. With David's support I have made a significant changes to the culture, developed a comprehensive business plan deployed it throughout the business via a revised appraisal process. We've won a couple of awards and been shortlisted in the Made in the UK Manufacturer of the Year Awards. Throughout this process David has been of huge support from brainstorming to making me accountable and deal with things I enjoy less shall we say. I know David to be kind and trustworthy and do not have any hesitation in recommending him."
