Who we are

David James


For over 20 years my career was as a successful Senior Manager with the Lloyds Banking Group. My career included senior roles in retail banking, business banking, H.R and operations.
One of my core values is a lifelong desire to continually learn and develop, to grow as an individual in everything I do. I want to be ‘the best I can be’. I passionately believe that lifelong learning is a philosophy we all have the opportunity to adopt. We can all learn so much every day individually and from each other.
I have been operating as a Consultant for over 16 years, with a global client base. My primary objective is to fully understand and then exceed my client’s expectations. Every organisation is unique and therefore requires an individual and tailored series of interventions.

My training and learning specialist areas include:

  • Leadership & management
  • Team building
  • Change management
  • Continuous personal development
  • Managing financial information
  • Starting your own business
  • Procurement and supply chain management
  • HR: The people profession
  • Growth mindset

To date, I have successfully delivered learning interventions in both private and public sectors and globally on several occasions in the Far and Middle East. My clients have been based in several sectors, including financial services (UK and Global), education, local and regional government, media, the built environment and retail.
