Dave Brown

Dave runs his own business, specialising in providing consultancy support in the areas of community investment/social value and community consultation.  A general practice surveyor by training, he studied at Heriot Watt University and initially specialised in commercial property and asset management for over 20 years, latterly as a director and head of department for two national firms.


Dave regularly develops and delivers community benefit strategies and is a strong advocate of the positive role that the business community can play in delivering social and economic benefits for local communities in general and for education and the learning journey in particular.


In his spare time, Dave coaches youth rugby with the local team, enjoys being taken for walks by the family dog and pootling about Scotland and the sunnier parts of Europe in his bright red camper van.
