COMBINING THE WISDOM OF THE WOODS WITH MODERN TECHNOLOGY
TO INSPIRE SOCIAL CHANGE
We’re leaping into an unprecedented future. A future that is driven by technology. How do we respond to a rapidly evolving world where the impact of technology is so unknown? I believe the solution lies in brave, innovative ideas that increase our awareness of how we relate to technology, many of which are rooted in the wisdom of ecology. I’m interested in how we can combine the natural world and the modern age to enhance our society and help us navigate a future in which we can fulfil our collective potential.
Whether in immersive dinners on purpose, convening workshops to synthesise diverse actors or installations to imaginatively demonstrate new behaviours, I love working with partners to create memorable moments of interaction that produce lasting value and meaning and to go together on this journey.
My keynotes can be a shortened more condensed version of a longer speech I've given or a talk that focuses on one topic, one story.
I'M A THINKER, A DOER, AND A LEARNER. I use my imagination to generate global ideas before attempting to turn them into reality. Then I reassess and reevaluate. Rinse and repeat.
I'M A SPEAKER. I've spoken for a wide range of organisations and on a bunch of different topics. One of my main interests is thinking about how we learn to navigate a future dominated by a new tide of technology, and how we use the power of technology to benefit us all.
I am passionate about sharing the tools and stories that help us prepare for an unprecedented future.
PUBLIC SPEAKING FROM THE HEART
I have delivered over 30 unique talks all over the world including a series for TEDx, lectures at a number of UK universities, and international philosophy and education innovation conferences. My recent adventures and long-standing principles form the basis of these talks, which seek to inspire audiences to think and act differently in their everyday lives.

You can also find me on YouTube, where I cover a broad range of topics, from interviews with some of the world's most interesting intellectuals talking about the environment and our relationship with the natural world.
Join me on YouTube as I start my adventure at Wilderness Farm, starting from the very beginning and learning what nature has to offer. The latest video can be found below.
“Dave delivered a great workshop to help us evolve and enrich our storytelling. Our attendees really enjoyed taking part and Dave created a dynamic but comfortable environment in which to learn and explore ideas together. The session stood out for being both creative and exploratory whilst providing a clear framework and tools that could be taken away and applied. The ideas and methodologies shared have since helped us to shape our approach to content creation, curation and collaborative storytelling. Thank you for providing such an inspiring and thought-provoking learning experience!’
