Dale Williams lives a portfolio life. Working to bring out the best in people, he invests in individuals and businesses where there is mutual benefit. Investment comes in the form of time, expertise or money and returns are expected, either financially or in the form of new learning and experience.

More recently he has developed a portfolio of activities which include Executive Coaching, Lecturing, Facilitating Strategy and Scenario Planning Sessions and occasional writing. He has some entrepreneurial business interests and most importantly, family interests. He enjoys spending time with his two young daughters, his wife, his surfboard, mountain bike, microlight aeroplane and trail running shoes.
He has an MA from Middlesex.
