I have recently worked with David on a major restructure of the GCC and some potentially difficult employee relations issues. He was a pleasure to work with and we will not hesitate to use his services again. I can recommend him unreservedly.
David handled a difficult assignment to a mutually satisfactory conclusion in a very professional manner, and should be congratulated.
I am very happy that we reached agreement. I feel much better about being at work!
I am so glad we have sorted out our differences. It is a huge weight off my shoulders!
I have worked with David on two senior team restructures in two separate organisations. Has excellent attention to detail and high degree of clarity. I can recommend without any reservation.
David has undertaken work for me on a number of occasions and I have always been very pleased with what he has done.
David carried out a thorough review of our HR policies and procedures bringing them into line with the law and best practice. He is also a useful source of advice on general HR matters. I can vouch for his integrity and professionalism and can unreservedly recommend him.
I appreciated David’s skills in life coaching at a stressful time as I was facing redundancy. He helped me to think through future options in career and financial planning; his advice was very helpful and thought provoking, highlighting issues that needed addressing.
Coaching is by definition a very personal experience. David's personality and professionalism allowed me to express myself without fear of judgement. At times, it felt as if David had "turned on a light switch". New self-awareness and the discovery of options which were now available to me that previously I could not see.
I would have no hesitation in recommending David’s services to another school and am happy to discuss this with potential clients.
David made it easy for us as a governing body to come to an otherwise difficult decision,
I would highly recommend mediation. I felt at ease knowing I was in safe hands with David. He explained the processes and procedures very well. I was completely open and as it was a very sensitive situation it could have turned extremely sour. However the careful handling of each meeting meant we were all able to come away thinking we all had made positive progress and could think ahead. Thank you!
The outcome of this mediation was very positive. It was amazing that after only one session it has turned around for both of us. Thank you
I held the mediation review meeting today and it went well. We reviewed the list of agreed behaviours/ actions from the meeting we held on 22.12 and both parties have moved on, have an improved working relationship - colleagues have commented on them talking together now and so positive all round for them and my Service. Thanks again for the steer and information.
I just wanted to write and say a BIG thank you for your input. It was a brilliant time of learning for me personally. Certainly gave me a lot of food for thought.
The grievance and absence workshops were very good, sensitively approached and met all my objectives. Thank you.
