Early in his career, as an operational HR, he worked for Hewlett-Packard in the UK, then at the cutting edge of cultural change and sound leadership practice. A move into sales and marketing at HP led to a transfer to Australia in 1997; followed by consulting roles for Computer Associates and PricewaterhouseCoopers. Dave still advocates the benefits of many of these practices with one of his first moves at AIM has been to remove the walls of the Membership operation at AIM HQ where he sits with the team to facilitate open communication, vital in an operation that serves members.
