David Nour is bright, innovative in his recommendations and fantastic to work with in driving our growth strategy. Having read his books, I engaged him to bring a more hands-on approach of his ideas into our organization. Every session with David is invigorating in helping me and my senior staff remain steadfast on our strategic objectives. He is an intellectual sounding board for my vision and stewardship of the organization. His experience in working with senior executives and board members, makes him an invaluable and battle-tested advisor. I would highly recommend David to any senior executive who is aiming to challenge their status quo.
