Dave Smith

Dave has been working as a facilitator, coach and guide since 1988. He has run a successful Dave Smith
consultancy business (Inner Business) with his partner Marian Moriarty since 1995. He has strong roots in creativity, innovation and human process which he has been successfully applying to help people and organisations face up to and make significant changes for more than 20 years. His considerable experience in the softer skills is balanced by a background in the physical sciences.

Dave has survived and prospered through several significant life changes including 3 major changes in career direction.
Starting out in scientific R&D (working for the Medical Research Council and for Unilever) Dave then moved into the world of market/consumer research (operating both as a practitioner and a buyer) finally entering the field of business consultancy, offering training and facilitation in the fields of creativity, innovation and change to companies in all sectors of business.

Academically Dave has a degree in Applied Biology and other qualifications in Quantitative Biology, Microbiology, Life Coaching and NLP. He has well-developed skills in creative thinking and connecting with and motivating people. These are coupled to an enormous capacity for dealing with complexity and rational thinking.

One of Dave’s particular strengths is in creating new approaches and ways of dealing with challenging circumstances.

Dave holds very strong beliefs about individuals power to have an impact on the world around them and to dictate the course of their own future.

Outside of work Dave is a keen gardener, focusing on producing vegetables from an ever expanding kitchen garden. He keeps fit by regularly swimming, surfing and practising yoga. He is also a qualified karate instructor and scuba diving instructor.
