Chartered Secretary

I first met David Craddock in 2008 when I was the Deputy Company Secretary for an international company quoted on the London and Johannesburg Stock Exchanges. I attended a seminar led by David which fully equipped me to carry out my employee share scheme duties at this publicly-quoted company. To attend one of David’s seminars is an inspiring and fascinating event. David is a man of substance with an in-depth knowledge of employee share schemes and the wider array of employee benefits. Throughout the seminar, David was charismatic with a great sense of humor, charming and entirely professional. He has an amazing natural ability to empathize with each attendee at his seminars, remembering each of their names so that he can address each of them personally and engaging with any individual who puts a question to him. Furthermore, David has this capacity to instill confidence, as he did in me, in applying the subject matter to the precise circumstances of my work situation. The support material that David provides for his seminars is absolutely first-rate and contains numerous examples to illustrate the points made. Once I had completed my day’s seminar training with David, I felt that I had gained not only on a professional level but on a personal level as if I had spent time with a personal mentor who had given his time to me personally.
