About David Burland
With over 30 years experience in the voluntary sector, I bring vast experience from my time as a Chief Executive, a Trustee and a Director of several charity-related enterprises.
From 2012 to 2017, I was CEO of Shooting Star Chase, one of the largest children’s hospice services in the UK. During my time there, both of the charity's hospices were awarded ‘Outstanding’ CQC accreditation. We also significantly increased the range of services and numbers of children and families supported.
When I was at Help the Hospices – now Hospice UK – I achieved a six-fold increase in income in just seven years. I later became Deputy CEO with a remit to lead relationships with member hospices.
David has worked closely with us for over two years delivering governance reviews to Digi-Board’s clients. He is one of our most highly valued and trusted associates for so many reasons. We have shared values, which we live and work by. He inspires total confidence in that he will deliver what he says he will, when he says he will; all with a keen attention to detail and that extra something that we look for – taking care of clients and their needs. Helen Michaels, CEO & Co-Founder, Digi-Board
"This was a vital project as we needed to demonstrate to our Board that we could raise the funds required to implement our new organisational strategy. David’s report combined careful analysis and observations with sound arguments and strong evidence. We are very pleased to recommend him to other charities."
Ian Green, Chief Executive, Terrence Higgins Trust
