David Noël

Leadership | Culture | Communication

My name is David. I have a deep passion for supporting people, organisations, and leaders who have the desire to unlock their and their teams’ full potential. I balance strategic and visionary thinking with pragmatism and a bias towards action. I can go broad and I can go deep. My top 5 Gallup Strengthsfinder strengths are Strategic, Activator, Maximiser, Adaptable, and Input. On the MBTI, I have tested as an ENFP, twice. If we choose to go on a journey together, I will bring in my whole self and my entire experience to help you be successful.

I have spent the first 10 years of my career in the music industry before moving into the startup and technology space. After co-founding a startup that failed spectacularly, I joined SoundCloud in 2009 as their seventh employee. Over 8 years with SoundCloud, I have held two positions (VP of Community and Communications Director) and was part of the Senior Management Team. The common themes of those ten years are community & communication, culture & leadership, and employee engagement. That’s my sweet spot when working with clients.

I live in Berlin and like to travel the world. I co-founded an interview podcast series called Role Models, where my co-founder Isa Sonnenfeld and I interview inspiring and successful women.

I am a certified Leadership Circle Profile coach and work in English and German.
