Meet David, Manager

Meet David

My Role

I am a Manager within the Business Consulting practice. I have been involved in a wide range of consulting assignments, working in the areas of project management, business analysis, business process design and implementation, Organisational Change, Business optimisation, strategy, M&A Business Requirements and risk management. I have worked different of clients spanning a number of industries with particular concentrations in Insurance, Banking, Oil & Gas, Defence and Automotive. This has helped to build my skills and experience over the years. Currently I am working full time in the midlands, but in the past I have worked in Europe, South Africa and the US.

Normal Day

Consulting often doesn’t provide a normal working day. I have found myself working on one project in Somerset to then, four days later, be working on a different project, different client and industry in South Africa. Currently I am working as the project planning manager on a large, entrepreneurial, multinational, customer facing project for a large automotive company. The start of the project involved running multiple workshops with different parts of the client’s business to developing Governance Structures, Workstream Plans and Critical Paths. As the project progresses my day may involve having meetings or workshops with the client, team leads and other parts of the project to go through planning, issues, risks and solution design to define new pieces of functionality. I am also involved in other ad hoc pieces of work which involve solution analysis, requirements, project planning and project management. However in a few weeks’ time I might find myself in Sweden working with one of the client’s vendors!

Outside the office

Out of the office I like to spend time with my friends, go for walks in the countryside and when I have the time go sailing. I am also a big fan of traveling and therefore many holidays are spent traveling around the world.
