Professor David Clutterbuck

David Clutterbuck is the master of the BDQ (Bloody Difficult Question) – questions that challenge leaders to think about what they do and why.  Author of more than 50 books, he brings a wealth of international practical experience and leading edge research to developing leaders at the top.  Visiting professor at two universities, he works across the world, stimulating top teams to become role models for learning and to examine how they can raise their collective performance.

Based on hundreds of research interviews, David brings cutting edge perspectives from leaders in coaching and mentoring to the evolving of an organisational coaching and mentoring culture.  A successful entrepreneur in his own right, David makes serious management topics accessible through humour, story and provoking perspectives.  He is regarded as a leading global authority on coaching and mentoring, and on Board behaviours.  He has been listed amongst the most influential thinkers in human resources and top business coaching in UK.

David's latest book Beyond Goals, explores why a heavy emphasis on SMART goals is so often dysfunctional and distorts the coaching and mentoring dialogue. 

Every year David takes on a major new learning challenge – from sky-diving to mountaineering, learning to be a masseur and stand-up comedy.
