– Dave Hughes, Senior Practitioner
As a business leader Dave delivers results through people. He is very inclusive, brings the best out of people and works very effectively with people from all backgrounds. He is able to take very divided and underperforming groups and turn them into collaborative, confident, high performing teams. As a coach and facilitator Dave likes to listen and to ask questions to help peel back the onion layers and reveal insights into the workings of teams and individual leaders. He does this in a very direct, but supportive style.
Dave has a BSc in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from King’s College, London.
Dave has over 30 years of experience as a leader, coach and mentor, mostly in line management roles and more recently as a professional coach and facilitator.
