David has been a Chief Strategy Officer and worked with some of the world’s largest advertisers, global agency networks, and media sales houses.

"Until you fully understand who you are, you cannot truly show up and make the impact the world is waiting for."



Why do you want to be a mentor?

The mentor’s job is to help you get where you want to go faster. Help you see the things right in front of you by joining the dots and painting a clear picture of what you might feel but not be able to name. And then see the potential in you that you might not yet be able to see. We are all capable of more than we often give ourselves credit for. What’s it worth to find that spark that ignites you? For me, it’s worth applying everything I know to help someone find it, and that is why I love this work.

David is driven by a desire to make sense of how things work, and that includes how people think, behave and also hold themselves back from fully showing up. David has been a Chief Strategy Officer and worked with some of the world’s largest advertisers, global agency networks, and media sales houses, all of which have given David a deep understanding of what it takes to connect, engage, build trust and form lasting relationships.

David’s passion is aviation, and he has a habit of breaking records and competing until he wins medals and championships; David sees himself as fiercely competitive and very driven.

David likes extreme activities and has always blended the discipline and challenges of aviation with leadership and strategy.
It’s not all been unicorns and rainbows. David had a brush with cancer and in his early childhood grew up as a gay kid in the 80s in a single-parent family on a council estate which has given David his fair share of challenges.

These experiences contribute to David’s expertise and approach to life.. They have taught David many lessons both at the time and in deep reflection on the things that can hold us back even when we think we are surging forward. David openly admits that he does not have all the answers but the ones he has he is open to willingly share.
