David Lynde In 60 Seconds

I have more than 20 years’ experience working as a FD/CFO in both private and public entities both in the UK and abroad.

Being a portfolio FD/CFO allows me to continually meet entrepreneurs, to learn from them and to use that knowledge to help others achieve their dreams.
