David Bartholomew

Dave is a project management and training consultant with 25 years’ experience in project and programme management, training and personal development. Originally trained in IT systems and applications programming, with an MSc in Intelligent Systems, Dave refocused his career on management and providing business solutions, working with a variety of SMEs, FTSE 100 corporate clients, public sector bodies and international organisations.

A certified Project Management Professional (PMP) and Prince2 practitioner, with an additional post graduate qualification in education, he now works with organisations to identify opportunities to strengthen project management processes, develop individual PM skills and enhance delivery capabilities.

Dave’s commitment is founded on two underlying beliefs: project management is an area in which organisations can add value faster than they can spend money but only if applied correctly with commitment and investment in processes and, most of all, people.  To this end, he has also worked within higher and further education, developing and presenting courses at graduate and post-graduate level to better equip students with practical and relevant skills for the workplace.

Dave retains his lifetime interest in science and technology albeit as an observer now, and has developed further passions for property renovation (the latest project being his farmhouse home in Wales which he shares with Lyn, his business and life partner), amateur dramatics, horses and dogs which Lyn and Dave breed and train for competition and enjoyment.
