I help organisations grow their confidence and skills in conducting user research and insight-driven design. This is essential when unsure where to begin when starting a new website or improving a digital service. I do this through learning experiences, workshops and mentoring sessions. I focus on culture, behaviours, design process, and strategy to improve the customer experience.
I have spent over 18 years working in digital design for well known high street brands, top digital agencies, startups and the charity sector. During this time, I managed design teams, led design projects, and established a user-centric mindset in many organisations.

David Collins Consultancy
Business life planning for small business owners. Getting them clear on their 'Why', clear on their direction, and clear what to focus on - one step at a time. A plan created to help the business owner develop their business in the direction they want, with a regular sounding board to keep focused on what's next. Helping the owner to sleep at night, and have guilt free time when not 'in the business' - the evenings, weekends and on holidays. Simple, and not always easy.
We offer a free cost management service to support businesses with managing their company overheads, particularly focusing on essential running costs such as energy procurement, communications, business insurance and various business supply needs such as stationary, print, PPE etc
Our service offers a complete review of your current spend in these areas, we highlight supplies where you are over paying, or where contracts are not the most suitable for your businesses needs. Once a review of your current costs has been completed, we will approach the markets and suppliers on your behalf to find a more suitable and often more cost effective option. We present our findings to you and discuss the options, should you decide to go ahead with our recommendations, we will mange the transfer process from one supplier to the other and provide all ongoing support and supplier communication on your behalf.
The best way to describe our service is an outsourced procurement function where we can offer expert knowledge of the markets and use our strong supply chain to negotiate the best deals for your company.
