We asked Donald how he works with his clients to ensure #FutureFitGovernance?
This was Donald's response...

Those that I have worked with commend my invaluable ease of manner and ability to find the light side of situations which helps create allies in those around me, yet it is undoubtedly my broadness of view and consummate understanding of aligning for business success that makes me such a positive influencer; my approach is to dispel negativity and tacitly guide towards optimal outcomes for clients. 


I apply a strategic and purposeful analysis to complex requirements, which brings positive impact benefits.  I am recognised as someone who has a passion for truth, bringing a comprehensive intellectual and practical toolkit to bespoke projects.  This is augmented with a wealth of relevant qualifications and shrewd practical experience, garnered over many years of professional engagement and research. Building on sharp intellect, my commitment to continuous improvement and accomplished people-engagement helps define a pragmatic approach to effectively work with key stakeholders to structure and deliver excellence. 


I am an advocate of social participation, where interaction begins on a community-of-interest platform where I bring about robust stakeholder engagement, drawing on intellect that probes and seeks out value in both people and context. 


I consistently bring professional commitment and values to guiding myself and those around me towards excellence.
