Leading transformational change in prominent public and non-profit organisations has been the focus of David's career. From 2003 to 2009 he was chief executive of the Westminster Foundation for Democracy through a period of intense international interest in democratic transitions. As director general of the Commonwealth Institute from 1997 to 2002 he championed education for diversity. From 1987 to 1995 he was chief executive of Relate, the UK’s leading relationship counselling agency, where he led a major rebranding and organisational turnaround and increased the organisation’s volume of work by 60%. He was also an influential advisor to the British government on divorce law reforms.

David qualified as a business coach with Meyler Campbell in 2015 and works across a wide spectrum among senior leaders in the corporate, legal and non-profit sectors. Alongside his coaching practice David chairs the board of Y Care International, part of the worldwide YMCA movement, working with some of the poorest young people in the world to help themselves out of poverty. He is at ease at very senior levels in complex, high profile organisations and has extensive international experience, particularly in the Middle East. David is part of the Step on Board delivery team.
