Experience 

The last 25 years, Dave has experienced the training world (giving people the tools in which to succeed) along with the commercial world (delivering a service within a commercial environment) and having seen a clear disconnect between the two, he identified an opportunity for Haynes Oliver Ltd to support various industries as well as Automotive. 
Dave has been successful in securing some of the largest training and commercially focused contracts within the automotive industry, relating to people at different levels and understanding what drives success his skills are a valuable asset, taking clients ideas and collateral and translating it into practical and measurable deliverables for the end users has been key to his success. 
"Having worked with David for over ten years on various projects both commercial and training I've experienced his skills in many different ways. Understanding and translating deliverables into practical actions combined with the ability to motivate people around him I’ve seen first-hand the results achieved." 
MATTHEW BARHAM FORMER SERVICE DEVELOPMENT MANAGER, VOLKSWAGEN UK
