David Bentley – Executive Leadership Coach

Fastlane Consulting Group is delighted to welcome David Bentley as part of our collaborative community.  David is a respected author, speaker, facilitator and leadership coach.

Over the past 20 years David has held senior leadership positions in large organisations and in the late 1990’s worked as General Manager for an iconic brand in the USA – with a significant and international workforce.  During this time, created the concept of Naked Leadership®  delivering it into the Australian market in 2001.

The program was immediately adopted by innovative companies like Virgin Blue as an essential part of leadership training for their senior management team, divisional leaders and people at all levels of the organisation.  David’s book NAKED LEADERSHIP was launched in 2005 and is consistently sought after as a valuable tool for those managing people.

David holds a Master’s Degree in Science and Technology and incorporates the latest research in workplace dynamics, human performance and the science of Human Factors, into developing leadership and communication tools and techniques that can help create a positive workplace culture, effective communication and feedback and improved team dynamics.

David believes that being a leader shouldn’t be as challenging as it can often be and he enjoys helping organisations to unlock their growth potential through an open, honest and positive relationship with their people.
