Nathan Dring joins The Engagement Coach team

Article posted 8th Mar 2018Company News

I’m delighted to announce that Nathan Dring is joining our growing team at The Engagement Coach, as associate Leadership Development Specialist. Nathan brings a wealth of experience with him. It’s rare to meet people who are passionate about what they do, passionate about making a difference, passionate about providing the very best standards of work, and who truly believe we have to change the way we work to improve engagement, productivity and drive innovation. Yes, he’s very passionate! Nathan has all of these qualities in abundance, and he happens to be a thoroughly nice guy too!

I’m looking forward to great things as we work together, and I want to formally welcome Nathan into The Engagement Coach family!

Here’s a brief background about Nathan:

Nathan Dring has worked in Learning and Development for over 15 years within retail, sales, theatre and SME businesses. Wherever he has worked, he has transformed both the output of, and the perception of the L&D function, ensuring it is part of the decision making and strategy setting, not simply reacting to it. He is energised by helping people realise their full potential both in the companies he has been part of, and in the charity work that he does. He loves to think creatively and bring the ideas he's used in theatre and education, to learning and development in business. Having chaired and led Executive teams, Nathan has seen first-hand, the gap that can open up when L&D does not speak the language of the board room, and is determined to help businesses make sure this doesn't happen to them...thereby placing L&D in the centre of strategy, planning and organisational change.

Nathan has 2 young children and so a huge amount of his time seems to be spent tidying up after them, but when he can, he enjoys live theatre, music, festivals and going to the cinema.
