Paul Davies

Paul helps people in organisations think and converse better, whether working strategically at Board level, engaging the wider organisation or coaching on a one-to-one basis.

He is hard to beat at helping executives maintain rigour whilst engaging in the complex social dynamics of any significant personal or organisational development. His analytical skills from McKinsey & Company and Accenture support the relational approaches he developed at Ashridge Business School. Serving Ambassadors, Directors, Partners and Senior Civil Servants, he is often a ‘consultant to the consultants.’

His work is grounded in experience of Founding CXO roles at charities such as Teach First. His perspective is enriched by recent years at Taoist kung fu schools in China, Buddhist temples in SE Asia and teaching on international MBA and MPP programmes.
