I’m David D’Souza and I’m glad you’ve stopped by. This blog is a very personal project and does not represent the views of my employer; sometimes it doesn’t even represent my views. It’s a place to think out loud.
I’m not sure how many things you can count as a specialism – but, broadly, if you’d like people to be more productive and work to be less sucky – that’s my space. I also have an especially keen interest in what the future of work will look like.
I’ve worked in HR for most of my career, primarily in retail and financial services, before two years of independent consulting, writing and speaking led to me joining the CIPD where I’m now Membership Director.
I speak about what organisations (and the HR profession) need to do to keep pace with external change and write regularly with the ambition to encourage organisations to make better work and working lives, so that when people come into work they don’t shift from rounded human beings into dull, less productive clockwatching corporate citizens (‘the reverse Superman effect’ – credit to Ali Germain).

A selection of upcoming events
I used to use this area to highlight places I’d be speaking. Now I think you’ll just need to hope not to bump into me. Sorry everyone. Chances are if you attend an HR conference in the UK this year and there is a bearded guy ambling about… It’s me. Apologies in advance.
