Martin Carpenter

I first contacted David through LinkedIn as I was looking for an experienced CIO mentor to help me get the best out of myself. And he does just that. David has helped me understand in a wider context what I really excel at and how to ensure that these are areas I build on in my career. I have found his counsel and advice very helpful, and have no hesitation in recommending David as a mentor to Senior IT professionals.
Top qualities: Expert , Good Value , Creative

Greg Stadler

Having enjoyed David's wisdom at several Evolving Role of the CIO events, where I learned of the breadth and depth of his leadership experiences across IBM, and with big Pharmas, FMCG, Insurance and many other industries, and being at my own career crossroads, I could think of no better person to ask for mentorship than David. Flattered that he accepted my mentoring challenge, we soon set to work within a structured framework that mapped my strengths, weaknesses, desires and opportunities. It was both pleasurable and informative, but most impressive was David’s ability to distill our conversation to the 1 or 2 salient points that were most meaningful and actionable. I owe David a tremendous debt, the magnitude of which his humble nature would never reveal, yet one I hope someday to repay.
Top qualities: Great Results, Good Value, High Integrity

Greg hired David as a career coach in 2011
