Drucker Canadian Foundation and the Toronto International Film Festival (tiff).
I have worked with David on a number of issues over a number of years. He delivers excellent strategic value to me and the organization I work for. He listens carefully, contextualizes the challenge, and works in harmony with me to achieve key milestones. As a thinking partner, he resists providing answers in isolation, rather he collaborates on a solution that will be complementary to other objectives and initiatives underway in the company. David is deeply principled and there is a conscience and a consistency to his advice that makes me confident that the outcomes we achieve will be durable, defensible, and to the greatest extent possible, balancing many interests. I welcome his rigour, as well as his empathy, in working through complicated issues.
