His approach is always good humoured and supportive, always responsive to new ideas and new changes in direction. I can therefore recommend David as an excellent board advisor for early stage businesses in the field of technology and engineering."
David Arscott MD PyTerra Ltd

"I have known David for about 20 years. I have worked with him as a candidate for roles I have been recruiting; as the client when he has been recruiting for his companies and now most recently as colleagues. David is not only an outstanding engineer and project manager but an extremely accomplished people manager. He couples all this with tremendous commercialism. Very much a people person David is particularly adept at building long-term relationships at quite literally every level. As chairman of the Ramsey Hall Board Practice he brings added dimension to the company's capabilities. His unquestioned expertise in this area is perhaps best demonstrated by the fact that currently he is chairman of the southern region for the Institute of Directors (IOD)."
Phil Boyle MD Ramsey Hall

David is a rare combination of rich coalface experience plus innovative strategic foresight in what it takes to succeed in a competitive manufacturing environment. We worked together rejuvenating major parts of the IoD and on regional business support. I once encouraged him to put his expertise to work as an NXD and he has since added huge value to a number of boards.
Alex Pratt OBE MD Serious Brands

"I have worked with and known David for approximately 15 years, initially through my association with the EEF South and latterly dealing with David since he progressed into consultancy and non executive director roles. David is someone I have regular gone to for advice and guidance and find his advice and insights invaluable. He is probably the most networked and knowledgeable professional I have met in my career. I am entirely comfortable recommending David for a business consultancy and Non Executive Director roles whenever the opportunity presents itself, on the basis of David's ability to consistently deliver at a senior level."
