Dr David Kearney

Chartered Director, Chartered Psychologist

OPDC is an accredited practice of the Institute of Business Consulting.  David is a Fellow of the institute with over 25 years of consulting and facilitation experience with global and national companies in Europe, North America and

Asia-Pac in a variety of sectors: aerospace, construction, defence, energy, financial services, IT solutions, pharmaceutical, retail and transport.

He is experienced in working with Boards and senior teams helping them to work more cohesively as a team, develop competitive strategies and implement and monitor these.

David works both as a consultant and as a facilitator of personal and organisational change. He is a true partner, building long term relationships with managers and their organisations; and typically taking responsibility for many different initiatives within a single company.

For example, for a global IT organisation with over 40,000 employees, David worked with the Board to develop a set of “differentiating” competences for exceptional senior managers. He ran a suite of mini-MBA programmes internationally for their top 200 directors and managers and High Potentials. He ran business strategy events for the senior teams. He facilitated large group business workshops over several days with 40-70 participants working intensely to address a major business issue they faced.  He delivered a suite of programmes which enabled senior project managers and technical specialists to become trusted advisors to their clients, build longer-term relationships and move from providing just technical solutions to creating business solutions.  He provided executive coaching to the senior executives on business negotiations, on leading organisational change, and on developing their personal leadership to address new business challenges, and much more.

David has lived, worked in or worked with over thirty different cultures.  He works with cross-cultural, dispersed teams to resolve difficulties and raise their business performance.

David draws on his own research and global best practice. For example, his expertise in negotiating skills (covering relational and commercial aspects) has placed him consistently, over the past 10 years, as one of the three top scoring consultants in the prestigious ‘Institute of Directors’.

His clients have included: AIB, Airbus, Allergan, Arup, Augusta Westlands, Baugur Group, BAE Systems, CGI, Commerzbank, Costain, Deutsche Bank, DORMA, EDF, EMI, Ernst and Young, France Telecom, GlaxoSmithKline, Harrods,

Hewlett Packard, Institute of Directors, Lock Fyne, Motorola, Santander, Screwfix, Senior, Siemens, Singapore Institute of Management, Southern Railways, Swiss Re, Telia, Thales and Ultra Electronics.

David lives in Somerset, and is married with three grown up children.  In his spare time he plays guitar, and enjoys woodwork: making and restoring furniture, guitars, mandolins and lutes.   However, as a result of more and more grandchildren, he makes less musical instruments and more wooden toys.
