David had 25 years of business experience before he became an independent consultant. He worked for companies like Alcatel, Securex, Case New Holland and Henkel.
His personal motto is “go against the grain“. It’s the title of a song by Garth Brooks (yes, he is not ashamed of that). It means that you should not be afraid to speak up, to take risks, to experiment.
He is an organizational psychologist (Ghent University) and followed management training (Vlerick / Leuven) and executive courses (INSEAD, London Business School). He is a trained facilitator, coach and trusted advisor.
Besides that he is also an author. He co-authored two books on Customisation of work and is the author of Sustainable Leadership.
He is the founder of Otolith and also president of the Belgian Association of HR Professionals.
Today he works with management teams to improve the execution of their strategy. That involves strategic facilitation, consultancy and from time to time interim management.
