Our Team

David Klaasen

FCIPD, MIoD

David has 30 years’ experience of working with senior leadership teams to ensure that shared values, clear communication and targeted development of people are the furnace that drives business success. He moved into the Learning and Development arena, inspired by the measurable results it can produce, after gaining valuable international management experience in the kitchens of 5 Star Hotels and Michelin Starred Restaurants. David has worked with all levels of management, across a broad range of sectors, designing award-winning and nationally recognised Management Development programmes.

He is an enthusiastic and emotionally intelligent communicator who utilises applied neuroscience to clarify complex issues and enable behavioural change. His skillful facilitation engages people at every level to play to their strengths, overcome their resistance to change, and be accountable. This approach can often release unexpected resources and innovation amongst management and staff. David’s key areas of focus are:

• Facilitating behavioural change
• Enhancing leadership team performance
• Delivering inspirational training
• Driving results through people.

As a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, David has demonstrated his deep understanding and knowledge of Strategic HR and Organisational Development. He is also a member of the Institute of Directors.

He is the author of ‘The 7 Performance Traps in your business’, three multi-media programmes available online and over 100 articles published on various websites over the last 10 years.

David enjoys skiing, SCUBA diving and keeps a clear head by meditating twice every day.
