A highly experienced coach, manager and mentor. Dave’s career spans 17 years as an officer in the British Army, a year in Amazon.co.uk managing teams in a large logistics operation and 6 years as a project manager for Abrdn in Edinburgh.
During that time Dave has combined a natural flair for engaging with people in an open and inclusive way with a real desire to see people develop and flourish. Since leaving the Army Dave has become more and more aware of the struggle for some veterans to adjust to civilian life and the impact Post Traumatic Stress has on them. That has led to pursing a coaching route to try and do more in this space and the establishment of Simplicity in Mind.
Dave has works with a mixture of leadership teams, groups and individuals. His clients have ranged from teenagers with exam anxiety, to suicidal veterans, to teams of security professionals. He has also had the pleasure of speaking at the 3PUK Conference in 2018 and 2023.
In 2023 Dave launched The Simple Reflections Podcast.
