I had the pleasure of working with David for almost one year. He has been an invaluable ally during my transition to the present role. Being an outstanding listener, he used his deep knowledge about human nature and his longtime experience as executive coach to help me reflect about challenges and opportunities, as well as ways to stretch myself and go beyond my comfort zone, while at the same time keeping our conversations friendly, warm and enjoyable. He is one of those few people that can truly leave a mark on you.
