I was once told that you become a consultant ‘by doing other things’ and that’s how I eventually came to work with Future Proof Learning.

I studied languages at university and worked in France as a teaching assistant, then worked in call centres for several years in banking and in facilities management before joining Future Proof Learning in 2018 as a consultant and coach.

Having ‘done other things’ in diverse industries and countries, I’m lucky to have now found my dream job. I love the work that we do, the clients that we serve and I’m very proud to be part of such a talented, supportive and committed team.

How do you like to relax?

I meditate most mornings and I like to read.

Do you have any pets?

I’ve got a grey and white cat called Charlie, we got her from a rescue place in 2014.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

I love trivia. When I was younger, I used to bore my family to tears by reading out facts from trivia books. Now that I’m older, I bore my wife to tears by reading out trivia instead.

Client Testimonials

“The work I did with David was invaluable. The sessions gave me a safe space to clarify my thinking and challenge my resolve in taking the necessary, difficult steps to move our establishment forward.””

Head Teacher, St Augustine’s RC High School

“The sessions with David enabled me to be a more confident, effective senior manager, better able to make decisions and lead my team to deliver critical services through very challenging times. David was calm, approachable, helped to rationalise and helped me to identify other approaches to problems and to seek alternative solutions.”
