How David is building a better working world

“I’m passionate about two things. The first one is about giving EY clients across EMEIA talented people, with excellent capabilities and services, so that they can succeed in this ever more disruptive, complex and technology-driven market. The second is about giving the young people I work with — as Trustee for EY Foundation — the very same opportunities that I have so that they can be the very best in their chosen fields, making their aspirations a reality and their future a success.”
