David Bentley is an outstanding communicator with a passion for delivering a meaningful message in an entertaining and engaging way. An internationally experienced leader, facilitator, coach and corporate speaker, David Bentley is also the author of NAKED LEADERSHIP - Leadership that works... It's that simple! a book that is gaining national attention for its straight-forward philosophy and innovative approach to leadership and workplace relations in the 21st century.

David has received acclaim for his ability to generate enthusiasm while educating audiences of various disciplines from Europe, the United States, Great Britain, Australia and the Asia Pacific region.

Following service in both the Royal Australian Air Force and Australian Army Reserve David moved to the United States where he spent nearly a decade working including as a leader for one of the worlds largest and most successful airlines. His experiences included working as an operational manager at one of the worlds busiest airports, travelling the world teaching leadership and helping drive cultural change across diverse operations and cultures and after significant success as an Airport General Manager and later Vice President of Operations for a US telecommunications company. In 2000 David returned to Australia and founded a corporate training and consulting organisation, The Naked Edge for which he remains Managing Partner.
