Client feedback

“Dan is an exceptionally accomplished and skilled product leader. More to the point he is such a clear thinker. Working with him has been one of the highlights of the last 7 years, he has brought tremendous rigour and credibility to our business. You don’t achieve what Dan has by accident. He is one of the real deals amidst all the talk from consultants & strategists.”

Austen Smart, Founder & CEO, Virtuoso

A lighthouse through choppy digital waters. As an app start up we need to learn vast amounts quickly. Working with Dan you get instant understanding, early practical proposals, challenge as to what is possible, a focus on the right metrics, measured relationship building and the belief that you can get though to your destination. A five star recommendation from me.”

Richard Blanchard, CEO, Margin Guardian

“Dan is brilliant. In a relatively short engagement at the BFI, Dan gave us incredibly valuable strategic advice and shared his deep knowledge and insights, about both the streaming sector and how to shape and run an effective product operation. Would absolutely work with Dan again, and hope I get to do so.”

Neil Williams, Executive Director of Technology & Digital Transformation, BFI

Dan has been a tremendous support for me personally. We’ve covered a wide range of areas which speaks to Dan’s incredible and unique broadness as it relates to strategy and leadership. His influence has been a combination of deep strategic thinking, coupled with a strong people / cultural appreciation, shared with a level of healthy pragmatism. I look forward to continuing the partnership with Dan’s guidance and support.”

Joel Brydon, Head of Digital Product, ABC

We have worked with Dan regularly over the last year, providing both strategic and tactical advice for our team to consider. By drawing on his extensive lived experience at the BBC and in advising other broadcasters, he is able to quickly pinpoint critical risks and opportunities across a wide range of topics.

“To any product managers looking for a mentor I can’t recommend Dan more. This was my first experience with a mentor and it surpassed my expectations. I got invaluable advice on building my product vision, stakeholder management and career progression. His expertise in the field of UK streaming was also extremely helpful in my current position. I have to say though my biggest takeaway from the mentoring sessions is the confidence Dan gave me as a PM. He is a great listener and gave practical advice I could apply straight away. It was really what I needed at this point in my career.”
