An example of clients we work with, and what they say about us:


“With his practical approach to team-building – informative and educational rather than "soft" and “preachy“ – David broke through the initial scepticism of the group to run a very effective session. He gave our team the tools we need to work better together, so that we now understand each other's working styles and communicate much more effectively” Gina Principato, Chief of Staff, Vanguard Investments

“During the Masterclass, David not only explained the core principles of Career Helium but provided great examples and interesting insights. He made a great connection with the audience through his interactive delivery style and ability to answer thought provoking questions. The Masterclass sent our managers away with a renewed, positive mindset on how they can pro-actively influence their career goals and aspirations.Any organisations actively seeking support on talent development should work with David Thompson” – Lisa Gonzales, Leadership, Learning, and Development Manager Emirates Group

He puts his vast experience in the organization development field to work to make change happen” – Barbara Turner, HR Director, Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi UFJ

“David Thompson’s style as a keynote speaker at our recent national conference was engaging, professional, slick and his pitch was perfect. He quickly gained the respect of his audience and as a recognised expert in the area of talent management he provided insights and thinking which both challenged and informed. David added a dimension of credibility by being both an industry leader and a thoroughly competent speaker – not always easy to combine the two. He rated very highly with our conference delegates – the feedback was excellent – and his willingness to be flexible to increased demands from the organisers was much appreciated” – Beverley Main, Chief Executive, HR Institute of New Zealand
