David is a Great Trainer and a top notch Learning Consultant, but not many people in my network know that he was one of the few people who mentored me as I started preparing for a new role in Talent Management covering the entire ASIA region.

Overflowing with tremendous positive energy, David comes with tremendous expertise in the area of developing and accelerating performance of talent within the Organization.

He has the natural ability to understand client requirements while adapting quickly creating custom made solutions that are very effective in getting the desired results sometimes even exceeding those expectations as well.

It has been an exciting experience learning from David and even more so in witnessing the positive impact while applying that learning in real-time corporate situations.
