David Jones, Senior Counsel and Global Lead for Transactional Excellence, The Boston Consulting Group and Founder and CEO, Clausify

During this meeting David will discuss:

  • What are some of the present challenges?
  • What are the desired outcomes?
  • Why is it important we think about change now?
  • What can we do to become change agents? 

David's talk will be followed by a Q&A session and opportunity for the audience to share their views on this subject.

To facilitate free and open discussion this event is only open to those working in-house. However, a recording of David Jones' formal presentation will be available to view on the SCL website after the event. This is the beginning of a much wider conversation on Standardisation and all SCL members will have the opportunity to get involved.

Speakers' details:
In his day job, David is a Senior Counsel at The Boston Consulting Group; and Global Lead for Transactional Excellence (which involves training colleagues and thought-partnering on our more complicated deals). Outside of this, David's second “hat” is as Founder and CEO of a business-to-business contracting platform called Clausify.

Previous to BCG (where David has been for around 2.5 years), he spent just under 5 years at Accenture (originally in Sydney, Australia) and then in London. Before that David spent just over 8 years in private practice, most recently at Herbert Smith Freehills.

David has worked on both public sector and private sector engagements, representing both buy-side and sell-side - on deals all over the US, Europe and Australia.
