David's CV

As the leader of the pack I lead by example. I care about the Speedsters and their development, I’ve instilled a culture of confidence and I’m relentless in making Speed a truly inspiring place to work.

I’ve been a Speedster for 12 years and in that time I have helped grow and evolve the business to what it is today…a fully integrated agency with the human touch. I’ve seen the team grow from 4 to a family of 16… each bringing their own exciting skills and embracing the values.

I’m passionate about brand strategy, new tech, a great customer experience, integrated thinking and of course beautiful design.

I’m business minded. I get that the days of having unlimited time are behind us… In today’s marketplace we need to think fast, be integrated, prove returns on investment and move quickly otherwise you’ll soon be out of touch.

You’ve probably gathered I’m fanatical about the success of Speed, the Speedsters and my clients. I confess I don’t really understand the saying “work to live, not live to work” as my hobby is my work.

I’ve been lucky enough to have worked across many sectors including Tech, FMCG, Public Sector, Financial Services, Education, Recruitment and Health. Having wide sector experience has meant my thinking stays fresh and I‘m given the opportunity to work with different types of people and businesses, learning about their challenges, collaborating with them and my team to develop new ideas that work perfectly for their audiences.

It’s the perfect job for me.
