“I would highly recommend any company to employ his services to increase the emotional wellbeing of staff, raise the awareness of staff diversity within management, to develop a fully inclusive workplace and to raise business productivity”
“Thank you for this, really, really helpful, especially the reminder/confirmation, that what will help, helps us all, so the methods and approaches to inclusivity don’t need to be seen as targeted, so much as best practice”
“Thank you so much for the session David! It was really insightful and inspiring”
“We received a lot of positive feedback following David joining us for our Pride event this year, he was very engaging and relatable, he made part of the talk interactive which I think was great for engagement. We’d recommend David, and would use him again.”
“It was a great session, he was refreshingly positive and brought great colour to our LGBT+ Pride Month session. We all learnt a few new things and the takeaways were ‘be proud of who you are, we are all interesting colourful human beings’. A very thought-provoking session, I would definitely recommend David.”
