What they’ve said about David’s work
David was my manager when I first joined Essex County Council. He is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced and he would always make time for me when I had a query or concern. He was a mentor when I needed but also gave me freedom in my role. I have a lot of respect for David…he was a great boss.
I worked for David as interim tourism manager for Visit Essex. David is very personable, supportive and when required, hands-on. I found it particularly helpful that he created an environment in which I could get on with and focus on delivering the projects I had been contracted for. Unflappable and knowledgeable, a great colleague and manager.
Having worked with David for a number of years and in a number of roles I can attest to his ability to determine the strategic priorities in a given situation and then clearly articulate and deliver a plan as a result. His strengths also lay in an ability to clearly and effectively communicate with a wide range of people from external stakeholders to colleagues in his teams, winning hearts and minds through well thought out engagement and an attention to the details that make a difference.
I worked with David for several years. He played a primary role in formulating and monitoring effective economic development strategies. He has a particular strength in translating strategies into action. I recommend him to you.
I worked in David’s team for over three years during which time he demonstrated a broad range of professional skills and experience which translated strategies and project plans to very real delivered objectives. David’s attention to detail combined with his management ability resulted in very real respect from his teams and colleagues of a nature not often experienced in today’s workplace.
David has given me a great deal of support in my role at The MedBIC. He was consistently generous with his time and was supportive and imaginative in the ways he contributed to our initiatives. In my view David is extremely professional, highly competent, exercises very good judgement and is always ready to lend a listening ear.
