David is President of Next Step Advisors, a consultancy service for business families helping them overcome the challenges that come with management transitions and ownership successions.

David speaks candidly about his experiences working in his family’s companies, for all of their successes and failures, which spawned the idea for Next Step Advisors helping families avoid the pitfalls, manage issues and harness the good in building a family business. We also hear Andy speak frankly about his experiences growing up as part of Oury Clark: the struggles, expectations, mistakes and lessons learnt.

David also tells us why he thinks family companies who don’t give enough back to their communities qualifies for the big bin of bullshit
