What distinguishes David from others, is that he has applied his brilliance in practical ways that are revolutionizing the way people think about change.
I’ve spent 30 years in the field of change. 99% of the consultants in that field make programs and tools their first step. That methodology fails. Instead, David starts in the minds of the leaders. He teaches them how their thoughts and subsequent actions actually determine the success or failure of the change they undertake. Through a series of stimulating trainings, David causes leaders of all stripes to examine where they want to go, and to prepare their thought process to arrive there successfully.
I understand that my recommendation lacks all the “he did this, and then he did that, and we’re a success as a result.” That’s not David’s approach. It would be more accurate to say: “David caused me to look behind my thoughts and behaviour, to align them with the objectives I’d set.” David won’t take credit for your success, but he can sure help you to make yourself successful.

A Thought Through and Thoughtful Approach.
by Tim Otter - Ex Global Defence Business Development VP, Chairman of NBC and CBRNUK, now CEO, leading a multi-disciplinary consultancy
In more than 20 years of working with David as a colleague and an adviser, he has always impressed as a thoughtful and thinking leader. His DUX approach of getting people to understand WHERE they are going WHY they are going there HOW they are going to get there and WHY they need to work in a certain way to get there is very effective. It breeds trust and effectiveness. No more so than in the Business Development and Sales arenas. Getting people to think for themselves and work effectively and to a purpose rather than rushing around selling things is a good return on effort and resources, resulting in long term benefits for both sides.
Having your eyes opened for good
by Karl Robinson - International procurement lead in the aerospace industry
After so many years of research and learning, David has produced a package that helps us understand, and explain our behaviour in the workplace. Not only does it open our eyes to a new dimension, it helps us realise that all wastes generated by business start with the brain activity that precedes behaviour. We learn that, like an iceberg, what's under the surface (our subconscious thought) is more dominant than what we think we are controlling (our conscious thought). This learning enables us to see our businesses in a new light. We come to understand why certain management styles are more effective, and how to harness the power of psychology to change a business, it's culture, it's performance and it’s results. It is the bit we've been missing.
This is the most powerful learning I have ever done. Once you've had your eyes opened, you can never go back to seeing things how you did before.”

I'm loving what you are doing at the moment; I think it is THE key element that needs to be addressed in many aspects of life.
I wouldn't have believed what was possible
by Paul Lyons - former Managing Director of Eurofilter, now MD of 'Delivered Strategy'
"We had made losses for 5 years prior to engaging Duxinaroe. The in-year benefits that followed, included 63% EBITDA improvement, 7.5% Sales increase, a massive service level improvement taking us to 98% OTD, 33% stock reduction, reduced floor space, downtime removal, cost downs and wholesale culture change. These can all be attributed to the course Duxinaroe delivered at the end of 2008.
It provided Eurofilter the change a number of extensive and expensive 'Lean Six Sigma' implementation efforts failed to deliver over the preceding 6-7 years, it helped us see beyond the tools and process and understand what really makes an organisation work!
If I had tried to tell me what was possible before we worked with Duxinaroe, I wouldn't have believed me."
Successful, sustainable change
by Jim Longton - former senior executive MD/CEO of several large international manufacturing companies in the UK, USA, Portugal and South Africa
For change to take place you need receptive minds. You need minds that are open to new ideas and new possibilities. The work David has done over the past ten years or so has developed the Dux Method. The Dux Method combines many years of practical ‘hands on experience’ with psychology and neuroscience to provide an engaging programme, designed to achieve meaningful, sustainable change, in the behaviour and attitude of people in the organisation. Success or failure is a consequence of Behaviour and Attitude. I am convinced The Dux Method will lead to success.
