David is one of the most effective and inspiring facilitators that I have ever come across. He has the most imaginative and engaging way of working with groups, providing the knowledge that participants need whilst stimulating their interest and enthusiasm. David combines an apparently relaxed style with the most demanding professional standards – highly recommended.

Essex County Council OBA Case Study

For the last six months I’ve been working with Essex County Council, a large local authority in the UK, supporting officers and elected members through their Transformation Project using OBA as the basis for cultural change. This has involved running 101 introductory workshops for senior elected members, tier 1,2 and 3 officers and operational teams. It’s early days, but early signs of more streamlined planning and contract management are evident as is the adoption of a common language and respect for accountability principles. This document, written by officers from the Council’s strategy unit, is a case study of the story so far. (First time visitors to my website may have to register to gain access to the OBA resources section). http://davidburnby.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/Essex_OBACaseStudy_FINAL_Sept2014.pdf
