Here’s What People Have To Say
Senior Project Manager - Dyson
Danny helped us reimagine our employee value proposition. It was obvious that he truly wanted to deliver something meaningful, and he consistently went above expectations to achieve just that.
Danny’s ability to challenge, and comfort in being challenged himself is refreshing and took us to the next level. He really understands the importance of human-centred design, asking the right questions to quickly pinpoint what matters most and then creating innovative solutions which resonate. He’s not only an expert in his field, but has a unique way of sharing his knowledge, making sure he brings all stakeholders on the journey.
Danny’s the person you want and need on your team - he makes sure he’s always on hand to talk things through, explain the method in the madness, and bounce around new ideas. He’s brilliant to work with, and I hope our paths cross again!
Associate Director - Mudano
I've known and worked with Danny since 2016/17, talking and doing all things Experience Design (XD), behavioural change and performance improvement. He offered me a refreshing outlet to talk about more effective ways to overcome the familiar Learning & OD staples, to build more holistic and change focussed experiences for people. Danny is a Human-centred Designer by practice, through collaborative design processes and experimentation (oh, and fun!). What I've experienced, is his drive to design with the people he's designing for, and what he's helped me to change the experience of work and learning, using simple but really effective frameworks for doing things that are out-of-the-ordinary. No doubt the guy genuinley practices what he preeches.
Chief Learning Officer - 360 Learning
It’s clear that Danny is an expert in the field of Experience Design and, as an emerging practice in L&D, his expertise, experience and leadership are crucial in guiding the profession.
Having spoken with Danny at length about Experience Design - and it’s applications to enhancing the employee experience - he has a rich and deep skill set in this area, in which he is an industry leader.
On top of this expertise, Danny has the credibility and gravitas of a leader - and commands respect as a result.
I’ve always enjoyed working with Danny and can’t help but learn from him every time I do
