Having myself worked with all of the five organisations in the past I know how difficult this really is – but he had techniques to guide and ground the process.
I would (and will) recommend Dave Lane to colleagues working across the community, voluntary, public and private sector if they need support to shape and take their work forward.”
Angela Blair, Sandwell Primary Care Trust, Food Policy Team
“Dave’s approach to Business Planning makes the subject come alive and makes the business plan suddenly seem very real.
He uses simple techniques to help build up a clear picture of what you are trying to achieve, how you will do it, what you will need and what the results will be.
Although I knew what I wanted to do, I was struggling to express it coherently. One of Dave’s training sessions and problem solved.
He certainly knows his stuff and how to share it.”
“David is a highly professional and talented manager, experienced in developing and running complex projects, and dealing effectively with a wide range of people. His communication skills are excellent and he’s a great Trainer- inspiring confidence in his trainees and business partners alike. With impressive inter-personal skills, David accepts challenges willingly and adds value to everything he’s involved in. Strongly recommended!” November 30, 2010
