I have worked with David Burnby on numerous occasions and on very different subject areas, eg LEGI, workforce development, social enterprise. His facilitation skills are excellent and he has a real talent for involving people and bringing out fresh ideas. We’ve been particularly impressed with his work on Outcome Based AccountabilityTM.

Carol Cooper-Smith ,Director
Barnsley Development Agency


Hello, and welcome to my website. I have been working as a freelance facilitator, trainer and consultant since January 2002 with a diverse range of statutory bodies, government agencies, partnerships, voluntary and community groups and private sector companies. My primary role is facilitation, supporting groups to achieve their best thinking. In practice, this means designing meetings and workshops and leading groups through the complex maze of collaborative working towards practical solutions. My work as a consultant has included supporting organisations with issues such as strategic planning, performance management, evaluation, governance and stakeholder engagement. As an experienced trainer I have developed a number of ‘off the shelf’ training courses as well as designing bespoke courses to meet clients’ needs.

Outcome Based Accountability™

Since 2007, I have specialised in training and supporting local authorities, NHS bodies, voluntary organisations and partnerships in using the Outcome Based Accountability™ framework for strategic planning and performance management (see The Outcomes Pages for further information).
