Consulting & Education
Martin Davidson helps organizations think differently about diversity: to appreciate the differences in employees and leverage those differences; to uncover individual talents and manage those talents; to approach diversity as an adventure rather than a burden. His unique and dynamic style engages participants, provokes forward thinking, and inspires change in organizations from Fortune 500 companies to Wall Street to higher education institutions. He does this through corporate consulting and custom executive education and training programs.
Corporate Consulting and Executive Education
Martin has impacted many domestic and global Fortune 500 companies as well as higher education institutions—consulting, training, and leading internal custom executive education programs. Some of the companies who have benefited from his teaching and training include Credit Suisse Bank, Merrill Lynch Global, DuPont Corporation, Hewlett-Packard, ATT, Deutsche Bank, and Rolls-Royce.
