“Dave has run workshops for us and generally been in our network as a benevolent advisory influence for many years. He brings a wealth of experience and a skilled facilitation approach to his interactions. He creates spaces and sessions where a wide range of people are welcome and able to participate, share and learn together. He’s also our go-to for anything local government and democracy related!”
