Our People

David Storrs

Role

Managing Director. Facilitator and Executive Coach

Background and experience

David has been consulting at strategic level for 16 years with a particular focus on performance management and learning design. He is a member of the Irish Institute of Training & Development (IITD), Institute of Directors (IoD), the Chartered Institute of Professional Development (CIPD) and the Association for Coaching.


David spent the early part of his career in the navy and following a 7 year term in corporate banking with Bank of Ireland, he bought over hpc (formerly Mast Ireland) in 1999. At that stage, the company had been operating under licence as Mast since the early 80s under the leadership of his father, Frank Storrs. Frank, a Cambridge University graduate, had already identified the need for business training development in Ireland.
Since taking the helm, David has successfully grown the business into one of the largest independent learning and development consultancies across the island of Ireland. Today, hpc not only counts on a long-standing and continuously growing panel of high-calibre facilitators and coaches but it is also reputed among a broad client base across all sectors for delivering results through high-quality learning solutions. The company’s track record reflects David’s passion for excellence and effective teamwork.


Outside work, David is an award-winning sports coach and an accomplished rower.
