After first tasting business success at the age of 20 in the tourism industry David formalised his business education working for both Shell and IBM. His success led him into his first small business and within three years, at the age of 30, David was running the company having grown its sales by over 500%. He raised equity finance, acquired companies and opened offices in Europe and Africa before selling the business to a plc five years later.
For the next 15 years David ran mainly technology focused organisations ranging from small start-ups to larger public companies. He has operated across all disciplines helping drive decisions and make strategic decisions that drive shareholder value,
He built sales teams ranging from as 2 to 100; transitioned a hardware dominated IT company into a higher margin software and services company; took a £7m loss making organisation into a cash generative one within two years; raised finance, leading a management buy-out and eventual sale of the company; opened an off-shore business in India and re-positioned many companies to be leaders in their field.
Having mentored and coached many successful people throughout his career and with a strong conviction that it is people that make a business successful, David set up Thinking Decisions in 2008. The objective was to provide a place for business leaders, executives and professionals to go when they need support from someone who had been there and done it.
Since then David has worked with many individuals who have been facing tough challenges. He has helped them identify the way forward, not just for their business but also for themselves, and worked alongside them to achieve the desired results. He has helped people approach life's challenges in a calm and confident way, providing focus and attention to create a better future.
He has operated as a board adviser to a software product company, a mentor to the chief executive of a technology services company, chairman of an information management consultancy and coach to many executives undergoing transformational change.
