Dave has that rare ability to generate fun, interest and enjoyment whilst talking about the mechanics of a balance sheet.
He is a Chartered Tax Adviser who delivers management skills and personal development training, personality profiling, finance and commercial awareness training and team project meeting facilitation. His strong interpersonal skills equip him to run and manage open, mixed sector programmes, as well as in-company projects and programmes.
With a background in the Inland Revenue, followed by seven years in private accountancy practices, Dave understands the ins and outs of working and managing in a large organisation and can help individuals and teams to connect their own activity with the wider organisational aims.
His approach draws heavily on the enthusiasm, friendliness and willingness to help that distinguish him in his specialist field. Combining that with imagination and creativity, Dave is ideally placed to work at all levels in businesses in a wide variety of sectors. He balances his coaching and development work with accountancy and tax advisory work, ensuring that his approach is always commercial and realistic. It is this commercial balance and awareness that makes him firmly in demand with clients such as Visa, Orange, Technical Indexes and Zuken.
In addition to delivering personal and management skills development to teams and individuals, Dave is an effective life coach, who works with individuals from all walks of life.
Dave is an accredited associate of Insights Learning and Development Limited. He sits on the membership committee of the Chartered Institute of Taxation, and is treasurer of the South-Wales branch of the Institute. He is currently studying for an MBA.
