Welcome to the team, Dave!
We are delighted to welcome David Galloway to our team as a training design analyst.
Dave spent 29 years in the British Army, serving 13 years in an Infantry Regiment learning skills such as a close target surveillance, reconnaissance and intelligence and finally becoming an armoured infantry commander.
It was Dave's passion for learning and development that led him to the first of four tours of the Armoured Fighting Vehicle Gunnery School (AFVGS) based in the Armoured Centre (ARMCEN), Bovington. It was during his time at the AFVGS that David decided to transfer to the Small Arms School Corps (SASC) where he then specialised in the Training and Development of all forms of weapon training, both mounted and dismounted and Live Fire Tactical & Training (LFTT).
During the next phase of Dave's service, he was involved in every aspect of the training life cycle serving in locations such as the Infantry Battle School, AFVGS, British Army Training Unit Suffield (BATUS), Infantry Trials & Development Unit (ITDU), Training Advisory Group UK (TAGUK), Live Fire Group (LFG/OPTAG) and finally finishing his career as the lead Training Advisor to the Commander 20th Armoured Infantry Brigade based in Germany.
During this lengthy period of service Dave had the good fortune to be based in Berlin when the Berlin Wall was pulled down, served in Cyprus, across the Middle East and North Africa and supported Operations in Northern Ireland, Afghanistan and Ukraine.
Dave was awarded a Queen’s Commission in 2015 where he returned to ARMCEN. As the Officer Commanding the Mounted Close Combat Training Advisory Team (OC MCCTAT), he deployed in the support of Allied forces project development such as, the first ever Latvian Armoured Centre and the support of the Royal Sultan of Oman’s Officer Training Academy. He says that his most notable role was the Officers Mess Silver and Presentations Officer, yes, they did put a scouser in charge of the Mess silver!
Since leaving the forces in 2018 Dave has spread his wings delivering roles such as a systems integration test manager for Lockheed Martin, a self-employed performance consultant, and an area manager with Amazon Logistics, but he is glad to say that he has finally found his forever home with Inzpire Limited.
Welcome to the team!
Dave is pictured below delivering behavioural psychology training to a group of oil workers in Mozambique. In trying to build a rapport with the workers, Dave made a joke about years of marriage and the stress of having three children causing him to shrink and his hair to fall out. The workers said if they all held on to Dave's head and chanted positive affirmations, his hair would grow back! Initially the workers were quite scared of Dave, but after the first day he was called 'Chief Dave' and welcomed in to their village.
We’re delighted to welcome Duncan Sackley, who joins Inzpire as a space consultant in our growing Space Division having previously spent 35 years in the Royal Air Force.
