David Brunt Consultant

I am strongly value driven and Integrity has always been my foundation – and I always seek to do what is right for my clients. I will tell you where my expertise can and importantly cannot add value to you.

David has a real purpose-led approach to work – pursuing initiatives that make tangible improvements to either customers’ lives or to the business. He thinks strategically but practically

I have spent over 29 years working in global blue chip businesses, such as ICI and AkzoNobel on global superbrands such as Dulux working at Director level.  My experience geographically covers China, South East Asia, Latin America and Europe, and functionally it covers sustainability, marketing and digital. I am a qualified commercial six-sigma ‘black belt’ and have led step-change process improvements and change projects in different areas of business and this is backed up by a Ph.D. from Cambridge University.

 I have had the privilege of contributing to many ‘firsts’:

  • The EU Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) pilot for decorative paints in Europe
  • First business focused sustainability strategy for a FTSE100 business unit.
  • First sustainability brand identity and positioning for superbrand Dulux globally
  • Conceiving and managing a major programme to lead the market-wide transition to lower VOC water-based paints
  • First global common web platform for B2C and B2B customer facing websites
  • First 'Black-Belt' qualified in my business with my first project delivering £250K saving p.a. to the organisation
  • Novel method of integration of carbon foot-printing into business systems to allow automatic cost effective reporting
