Experience & Background
David spent twelve years as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Surrey, where he consistently received outstanding feedback for his teaching and won a range of teaching and research grants. As Industrial Placement Tutor for Chemical Engineering, David found it was easier to get students placements, and subsequently jobs, if they had received training in Leadership, Team Working, Problem Solving and Communication. David left academia in 2003 to run Evolve Leadteam with Shirley and has been an adventurous, popular trainer ever since.
David is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, a Member of the Institution of Chemicals Engineers and a Chartered Engineer. David is also a Key Associate of the Leadership Foundation in Higher Education and an Associate of Adair Leadership Development and accredited to train at Strategic, Operational and Team Leader Levels.
