A truly inspirational and highly engaging business speaker Dr. Dave offers expert advice on both the ‘hard stuff’ (strategy, innovation and leadership) and the ‘soft stuff’ (people, psychology, culture, communication and engagement) as well providing audiences with an in-depth understanding of their point of intersection: a fundamental and often neglected aspect of business management.

His work as a business management speaker not only reflects on the pressures of such competitive work, reporting to thousands of shareholders and being responsible for billions of dollars’ worth of shareholder funds, but also the pleasures of business management, leadership and teamwork.
