David Scotland, Main Board Director of FTSE 50 Allied Domecq Plc and well known Director of several other FTSE Plcs, joins TPA at a time when their services are becoming increasingly recognised as a valued enhancement for executive development and performance.
David, who is also trained to Post Graduate level as an Executive Coach, says “For many years I have been responsible for getting quite large and disparate groups of people to hit their numbers and know first hand how important it is for organisations to motivate, encourage and develop their key people in a way that is
sensitively tailored. Executive Coaching, done well, is a particularly powerful support mechanism for executive talent. I am very impressed by the level of trained professionalism in TPA – their bespoke coaching approach, their extensive business experience, the results they get for their clients and the rigorous ethical supervision of
TPA specialises in performance coaching of boards, teams and individuals. It helps organisations to create coaching cultures and has a unique specialisation in the coaching of high-net-worth families and individuals. David states “TPA already has a first class client base in the corporate sector. Additionally, their work with wealthy
families and individuals is distinctive and of the highest quality. The issues of succession, the custodianship of wealth and the need to blend the responsibilities of wealth with “normal” life are becoming critical issues for larger numbers of people and Executive Coaching in this population is of particular value. At the end of the day, business teams and leaders frequently face similar paradoxes and dilemmas to those experienced within families and by working with both, TPA is constantly improving the quality of their coaching to each client group.
Thomas Preston, the Principal of TPA, said “We are delighted that David has joined us as our Chairman. He has consistently proved that once business leaders get the people factors right, the bottom line performance follows. He is a passionate believer in the practical work that attracts, develops and retains the best people. David will
add huge value to us as a team and primarily to our clients.”
