Kind words

A few of the organisations that have invited me to speak or chair discussions.

Valerie Hughes d’Aeth

Former HR Director, BBC

“David presented to our BBC HR leadership group, setting out what it takes to transform the workplace in the context of disruptive change. He used a fascinating set of case studies from other organisations, references to the latest academic research and his own experience to stimulate our thinking. He left us feeling positive at the prospect of taking on the challenge.”

Theresa Wise

CEO, Royal Television Society

“David Lancefield is experienced and insightful about our industries and combines this with empathy and emotional intelligence. It makes him a terrific chair for panels or fireside chats and I would thoroughly recommend him as a great listener and advisor in the boardroom.”

Elayne Phillips

Head of Communications , Government Shared Services

“David kindly delivered a fascinating and engaging session for a large, senior cross-government audience. He researched and tailored the content, made it inspiring and thought-provoking and stimulated a great delegate discussion. He sprinkled humour throughout and kept it upbeat, real and relevant. He was both a pleasure to work with and a modern professional through and through.”

David Matthews

President, Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales

“David presented his expectations of the economic and business trends over the coming decade and, most importantly, what these might mean for the ICAEW as the institute’s council set out to consider our forward strategy. Using a range of examples and illustrations, he challenged some of the more traditional views of the ICAEW’s positioning in the future and how we might think differently about the challenges and opportunities which will arise. Overall it was a thoroughly engaging session.”

Isabel Fernandez-Mateo

Adecco Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, London Business School

“David has been a guest speaker in my class several times, with fantastic results. He has helped my students think carefully about their transitions to leadership roles. David provides both insightful ideas and practical tools, combined with unique personal stories that bring the topic to life. The audience is always challenged to think deeper about how growing as a leader can make a meaningful difference in other people’s lives.”
