Working with David on the strategy of our business was a very pleasant experience. He was diligent, patient, thoughtful and a great communicator. He helped us understand elements of our work that we did not and helped us see ideas and possibilities that we were not able to.

It was a pleasure to work with David and I was very grateful for his insights and his calming nature in a working capacity. I would work with David again and I would recommend him to others.

David is an innovative and strategic marketing leader. His organisation and negotiation skills make him the perfect project manager.

Working alongside David was always very motivating as he strives to inspire colleagues and suppliers, and get the best results from them. His creativity and ability to think outside the box really helped exceed the company's objectives.

I'd highly recommend David to any business - no project is ever too big or small for him! I would definitely work with him again.

David, is a highly qualified marketer with extensive experience. He grasps what the client wants and needs extremely quickly!

What impresseed me most was his ability to 'think outside the box' and come up with meaningful strategies to push the company forward.

David's standard of work is exemplary and I would not hesitate to work with him again.
