Graduating with an engineering degree from Imperial College London, David worked as an engineer for several years before spending 19 years with the top management consultancy firms Price Waterhouse (now PwC) and PA Consulting Group. He then established himself as an independent consultant.

David has directed and led projects in a wide variety of public and private sector organizations throughout the world, focusing primarily on business strategy, corporate restructuring and bringing about radical performance improvements. The sectors in which he has worked include: energy, manufacturing, process and chemicals, mining, transportation, construction and financial services.

David has worked in a wide range of countries, including those in Eastern and Western Europe, the Americas and Caribbean, Asia and the Middle East. Many of his projects have involved him leading large mixed local and expatriate teams, working to bring about significant change. Having lived in Hong Kong as a child and having a well-developed interest in Chinese culture, David joined Mandarin Consulting in 2009 and has been instrumental in the development of the business. He has won the respect of both the corporate clients and Chinese individuals who have used Mandarin Consulting’s services. David has thoroughly enjoyed the challenge Mandarin Consulting has presented him.  He has also been touched by the gracious gestures and warmth he has received from the Chinese candidates on our career coaching program. David looks forward to growing Mandarin Consulting so that more companies and individuals can benefit from its services.
