About Professor David Clutterbuck

David co-founded the European Mentoring Centre and helped to steer its evolution into the European Mentoring and Coaching Council – the coordinating body for professional practice in this area in Europe. He has been chair of both the UK and European research committees of the EMCC and is now a lifetime ambassador for the EMCC. 

He lectures on coaching and mentoring at universities and conferences around the world. He led the research team that created the International Standards for Mentoring Programmes in Employment (ISMPE) and is the ISMPE’s current chair.

David has coached and consulted widely in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. He originally brought the concept of structured mentoring to Europe in the late 1970’s and has developed an international reputation for his mentoring programme design and support, helping hundreds of companies, voluntary bodies and government agencies around the world create sustainable mentoring programmes. 

David has an exceptionally strong research background, which underpins his work. He is the author or co-author of 60 books, of which 20 relate specifically to coaching and mentoring and hundreds of articles. 

One of the recent fruits of his research has been the Talent Wave, a radical rethink of HR practice in talent management and succession planning. Another is a re-evaluation of the role of goals in coaching and mentoring.



A guide to unleashing the hidden value in your organisation through high impact strategic mentoring programs.

Most human beings and organisations have one thing in common – they both want to do better. But it’s hard for one to achieve without the other. When you can harness both you can achieve great things.

Unfortunately, most organisational structures are hierarchical, which may aid efficiency but not necessarily “real” human interaction.

Solving the human equation is the cornerstone of great culture and the larger and more diverse the workforce, the more challenging it becomes, even before we factor in things like location, technology and pay rates.

Well designed and managed mentoring programs can have a dramatic impact on workplace culture and people engagement. A strategic mentoring program transcends hierarchy, creating relationships and interactions to build individual and hence organisational value.

In this guide we present you with proven practical insights on how to design, build, implement and automate a high influence mentoring program and create your own ripple effect.
