Mavericks need friends too

The clients we work with are mavericks.  They sense there’s something missing and are itchy to go after it.    If this means rattling convention and doing things differently – even better!

Mavericks need help to shake things up; allies who aren’t bogged down by the status quo and can galvanise an organisation. Which is where we come in…

Why Us?

David is a creative confidante to independent-minded business leaders around the world. He’s an insightful outsider who artfully sidesteps obstacles that can kill creativity in business.  He’ll get you clear about what you really want.  And craft the experiences you need to get unorthodox things done in innovative ways.

Less Meetings, More Meeting

“focus on what’s brilliant – and kill off all the rest’.

We like to help clients do ‘the everyday stuff’ more innovatively each day.   Creativity is, actually, everywhere.   Including – in meetings!

Working with David has provided the foundation for us to develop as a leadership team. I think of him as an architect of teams, looking from outside and advising me as the builder on what works best.

The in-house lawyers responsible for Intel’s EMEA operations were struggling with their meetings. We helped them redesign their diaries around the most valuable events and understand the real power of meeting leadership.

We created and ran an international Store Stars Academy to develop the creativity and entrepreneurship of store managers at European apparel company Mexx. Designed around integral theory it was a 'life university' for these unsung heroes of retail.

Real change needs to feel home-grown. With our client, CMO Thomas Breuer, we co-created and led a three-year Ways of Working (WoW) program for GSK Vaccines which became a grass-roots movement within the company

We helped the HR community reclaim their lunch break at Barclays Investment Bank. Snatched sandwiches turned into creative picnics where issues were sorted out, relationships built and community cultivated.

If you're itchy, great. Turn that frustration into fuel.
