Daniel Lock is the CEO of Daniel Lock Consulting. Daniel has an interesting blog with some useful resources. As a practitioner Daniel is results driven via a balanced combination of focused collaboration and a strong delivery mentality. His approach resonates with me as it based on what I call the "3 D's":

- Development - via executive support, mentoring or training

Daniel is featured here because as a practitioner he illustrates the core principles and practises on which this site and the
Practitioners Masterclass materials are based on, namely a holistic approach that pays equal attention to people and process [i.e. processes that work for people] to fulfil a vision and implement a strategy.
