David Orren works with Tech Sector Founders to secure leapfrog market advantage.
Through a wide ranging international career as engineer and business leader in the tech sector, David has seen at first hand how Conventional Thinking can limit the business potential of an otherwise healthy company. As Confidential Coach and NED, David challenges Founders to engage their team in 360 Innovation Thinking in every aspect of their business. By beginning with the outcomes we want leaders can unlock the potential for disruptive market engagement and leapfrog competitive advantage.
Technology itself is no longer a sufficient differentiator and great technology is not enough to secure market success. For Founders to achieve their goals, they must be willing to challenge every aspect of their go-to-market thinking, to test and upgrade the value they bring, how they position and engage with the market, and how the operational teams align and support value delivery to their chosen market. The goal is to secure undeniable and compelling customer engagement, and a high-performing business organisation that is aligned and capable of securing market leadership through scaling and rapid growth.
David’s early career as Chartered engineer with Ford Motor Co. and Thorn EMI led to consulting, sales, and international P+L leadership at Dun & Bradstreet and Platinum Software. As Co-Founder and COO of Silicon Valley finitech disruptor, WiredCapital, David led business growth to secure leadership within its market category in North American banking.
David gained a BSc. in Mechanical Engineering (Surrey), an MBA (Colorado) and he later trained as a Business Coach (ICF). David offers pro-bono advice/coaching to early career tech entrepreneurs and he facilitates Co-Coaching for professional coaches through the Association for Coaching (AC).
