Dave Thackeray can only be described as a modern-day maverick.
His arrival at Manchester Met University as a new content strategist was a true revelation. His passion and creativity for capturing authentic stories and ideas from real members of our University can be described as pioneering and captivating.
Dave truly cares about people and he wants to deliver an exceptional and excellent service with people at the core of everything.
He knows when it comes to thriving in a hyper-competitive marketplace, “playing it safe” is no longer playing it smart.
A true “doer” driven by goals delivering simple and actionable ideas with extreme energy, enthusiasm and gusto.
Dave Thackeray is super talented, truthful to the point of bluntness, visionary with an uncanny ability to see the hole in the argument that is being presented but seriously experienced and smart to fix it.
Dave is keen to make his mark and bring his unique blaze of innovation and lateral thinking to projects and problems. In his own words he is “a connector of dots” and if everyone could connect dots the way he does we would all live in a utopian society driven by value, authenticity, creativity and human doings and not just human beings.
Dave is about setting authentic content strategy, unleashing new ideas, connecting with his customers, and helping the best people to achieve great results. Dave will go on to make a real difference to the lives of many the same way that he has inspired me and many others at Manchester Metropolitan University with his exquisite words that create content and his unlimited drive for excellence.
