director of programmes
Dave is an ‘edge walker’ between corporate and entrepreneurial world. He is skilled at bringing together the ideas and the velocity of the entrepreneur with the structure and process of the corporate. He believes all things are possible.
As Licensing Director for Unilever, Dave expanded many Unilever brands into new markets by partnering with fast growth entrepreneurial business and giving them access to Unilever’s brands, knowledge and finance. A hugely successful venture, creating a rapid innovation cycle for the company and a new business model for growth.
Since then, Dave has worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs bringing clarity and energy to help them build brilliant businesses that they love working in.
Dave believes that people and behaviour bring the most difference to corporate agility. He has seen how a sense of ownership is a massive discriminator of performance in all organisations. He has also seen how purpose led organisations outscore performance led organisation in all aspects of business, regardless of the size of the company.
