David’s career and passion have been focused on restoring balance and harmony with the natural world. As a life long environmentalist he has spent the last decade engaging industry in system & process reengineering projects as well as infusing triple bottom line governance into the DNA of a corporation.
His philosophy is that corporations can be more efficient, profitable, return greater shareholder value and build a strong brand, all while being socially and environmental responsible. His leadership approach and inventing aheadof the curve is what I know will create sustainable competitive advantage, via combining the concepts of process engineering with sustainable business systems.
