‘David is a man of integrity and he’s honest enough to tell you hard truths. If you want to feel good all the time, don’t work with David! If you want to know how to drive value in your company, then work with David. He absolutely understands how to do this and has a good feel for who your customers are. He understands how teams work and what sort of people you need on your team. Sometimes you feel he’d be perfectly capable of doing your job and very well too.’
