David Powell is an engaging, internationally experienced and highly effective facilitator - specialising in assisting leadership teams in developing inspiring future vision and success strategies and helping them tackle tough, seemingly intractable challenges.

Why use a facilitator? It is not easy for any senior executive to both manage the context of an important meeting and take an active part in the content discussions especially when participants may strongly express divergent views. That is why they ask David to facilitate their strategic workshops - freeing them to participate fully and ensure the team converges on optimum solutions.
