I had the pleasure of watching David deliver training to 4x crews on the team dynamics required for HPHT drilling with MPD. David was simply outstanding and his eye for the slightest behavioural detail was just exceptional. He would observe the groups whilst they were working through scenarios on a simulator directed by a technical specialist, and then conduct the subsequent debrief.

"David has a deep understanding of Human Factors and how they can be used to develop high performing teams. He uses a variety of tools to engage his audience and make sure they are actively contributing to the learning process. His easy-going style and thirst for fresh ways to inspire people make it very easy to recommend him to anyone looking to develop their team with safety leadership."
