Since 2001 David I’ve developed a portfolio of activities which derive principally from 25 years’ experience in commercial and investment banking with HSBC and Deutsche Bank. My consultancy activities embrace strategic planning and implementation, and mentoring existing and aspiring entrepreneurs. In short, I help people who want to set up their own consultancy and freelance businesses. I’m an Honorary Senior Visiting Fellow in the Faculty of Finance at Cass Business School, where I run workshops on managing strategic change, entrepreneurship, corporate entrepreneurship, leadership, building high performance teams and sales. In addition, I’ve acted as course director. I’ve facilitated and provided mentoring support to the participants.
I’m a published author with a series of books on starting your own businesses. I was co-author of FT Publishing’s “Inspirational Gamechangers” (2015). I’ve written the course content for LHH Penna (for those changing career and starting their own businesses) and I deliver a number of their workshops.
I’m a Freeman of the Guild of Entrepreneurs. I have a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree from the University of Cambridge.
