David Latin

A leader, advisor, connector, director and investor who has worked at executive and board levels in major multinational corporations for decades.


After co-founding First Alpha Energy Capital LLP as an investment vehicle in 2016, I established First Alpha Services Ltd to advise company boards on business development, M&A and strategy, and I developed the 'Leadership Above The Line' service offering for individuals, teams and organisations. 


My deep global network spans across the energy industry, governments and universities, and I am uniquely good at making connections and spotting possibilities.

For more than 20 years, after entering the executive leadership 'fast track' at a major multinational corporation, one particular focus of mine, while also leading businesses, has been to make leadership development accessible to ‘the many’ rather than the ‘chosen few’. I have initiated and led programmes which have positively impacted hundreds of people in several large companies. 


Grounded in extensive business and life experiences, my approach is above all, practical and pragmatic, with a style that is easy and conversational - and when required, very open and direct. 


I am a passionate advocate of worthy causes and I believe in connecting people and ideas to create better outcomes for everybody.
