About David

As an experienced financial professional, with more than 2 decades of Corporate Finance and business management experience, I now provide NED, consulting and advisory services, with a particular focus supporting fast-changing and dynamic businesses. NED roles bring my commercial and management expertise to bear, whereas consulting and roles focus on corporate M&A and pre-IPO planning, utilising extensive transactional expertise.

A particular niche within consulting work is providing mentoring and coaching to professional services firms and individuals, working with potential partners and those in management roles.
