David co-founded CodeSafe Solutions in 2011 to transform how critical information is communicated to remote workers. With a background in the construction industry managing the installation of pipelines all over Australia, David developed CodeSafe’s award-winning Experiential Learning Process to improve worker engagement and reduce risk in the workplace.
His commitment to reform the educational and VET sector, led him to pioneer on-site mentoring and coaching workshops to influence workplace behaviour, develop inspirational leaders and increase productivity. As a recognised expert on worker engagement, David contributes to thought leadership panels, including RMIT’s Industry Advisory Groups, and presents to conferences and seminars on issues of safety and knowledge retention.
Outside of CodeSafe, David likes to keep fit through running and other outdoor pursuits. Originally from England he came to Australia to contest the Victorian professional athletics circuit, where he competed successfully for a number of years in metropolitan and regional centres.
