David Klaassen BGI Practitioner Business Scale Up

David is one of our BGI Effect Practitioners. He brings over 25 years of experience developing Leaders and Management Teams. His strategic approach to Leadership, Management and Team Development and his pragmatic approach to HR issues, earned him recognition as a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development in 2002. 

His robust operational background was forged in the intense furnace of 5 Star Hotel and Michelin starred kitchens during his first career as a chef. This means he can cut through the waffle and get to the core of an issue so clients get practical solutions to their problems. One of his clients won the Fast Business Growth Award after implementing his proprietary system ‘The CLEAR Framework’. 

David has years of experience in the BGI methodologies, BGI Effect and Strategy on a Page, combining these with his skills to ensure the right people are in the right roles as they scale up and are aligned with their business demands. 

In his spare time, David enjoys cooking decadent food with his wife Pam and ski trips to the Alps. Remarkably David has meditated twice a day for the last 40 years.

Meet the BGI Team.

When we are not scaling up your business, we like to do the unusual.

You might find one of us playing lead guitar on stage, writing acclaimed novels, climbing Everest, spending time with our family, sailing across an ocean, working with charities, hosting a world record breaking dinner party, or in search of the perfect cup of coffee.

We are always up to something unusual.
