George MacDonald Ross, Former Senior Lecturer at Department of Philosophy, University of Leeds

“I was Director of the Subject Centre for Philosophical and Religious Studies, and worked closely with David for ten years. He is a wonderful person to work with, and he has a unique combination of expertise and skills. He has a philosopher’s grasp of general theory, while at the same time being meticulous about practical detail. He conveys his knowledge of management theory in simple and comprehensible language, and he is an excellent presenter. He has had long experience of persuading people to adopt constructive change in academic management and teaching practice with tact and charm. He should definitely be the first port of call for consultancy in this area.”
