Who I am

My name is David Drain.

I have created a small business out of my long term profession. You may want to know a bit more about the Who, the Why and the How. Well …

  • I am British and live in Southwest Germany (close to Basel, Switzerland). My working languages are English and German.
  • I strongly believe in the power and criticality of employee engagement at all levels as an energiser and source of personal growth of individuals and business alike.
  • Thanks to over 30 years of working experience, listening and learning, I regard myself as a “seasoned senior professional”.
  • As an independent freelance coach and consultant, I have worked with a wide range of clients across many industries.
  • I held a number of senior leadership functions in global businesses, including executive global and regional roles in HR. Work in international matrix structures was part of my daily business.
  • I firmly believe in the value and synergy of professional networks and actively engage in collegial networking with experts in business, coaching, consulting and HR.
