David W Smith
Hi, I’m David Smith. Since 2009, I have served as an executive leadership coach to over 300 leaders and their teams. For 15 years prior to that, I successfully led multi-million-dollar organizations and large teams from multiple start-ups including one of Canada’s ’50 Best Managed Companies’. Now I am privileged to be a trusted coach walking alongside CEOs, CXOs and their teams in large multinationals, SMEs, private and family enterprises. I also coach/mentor new leaders to fully embrace their roles and prepare to step up as next generation leaders. Often act as a guide, challenger and conscience, supporting in accountability and regular progress towards individual or group goals through an array of assignments emerging from expressed interests and an assessment component. I receive a great deal of fulfillment by supporting people as they go about their work in creating change and results individually, in teams, organizations and beyond. I believe that people want to contribute, learn and grow to become the best version of themselves and that a trusted coach can help them realize enormous potential and satisfaction.
Coaching fees range depending on the monthly frequency or intensity of specific engagements. Engagements can be for individuals, teams and quite often, multiple people within teams.

"Dave’s mentorship through my leadership journey was highly valued. In addition, his team building facilitation was just what our Senior Leadership Team needed to kickstart our transition."Adam LogueCEO, JNE Welding
“David provided executive coaching for myself as a relatively new Chief Executive. He really focused on what I, as a person needed in order to grow as a successful leader. His own experiences, from being in the “Hot Seat”, allowed for him to relate in a way that I could grasp and grow. Leadership is, by nature, a lonely endeavour. It was great to have him walk with me for a few of those steps.”Collin Pullar, MBAPresident and Executive Officer, Saskatchewan Construction Safety Association
“I have had the pleasure of working with David for the past several months and it has been an extremely valuable experience. Both personally and professionally, David has helped me explore my development and growth areas in a way that is meaningful and constructive. I admire David’s professionalism and knowledge that brings to every conversation. He is always fully engaged in our conversations and brings fresh perspectives and insights to explore together. I would highly recommend David and Logia Consulting.”Karie Walsh, CPA, CA, Partner, KPMG LLP
“David Smith (Logia Consulting Inc) provided excellent consulting work to our executive team in January, 2017 as part of our K+S Potash Canada planning on values, corporate and team culture. His ability to focus on the issues and generate results was very beneficial. I'd recommend David for working with any leadership team.”Maryann Deutscher, CHRPVice-President, Human Resources – North America, K+S Potash Canada
“Dave helped me a lot to improve my management skills, to learn more about myself and gave me a good insight into the Canadian way of coaching, and so into the North American way of management, which was very helpful for me as a European.”Dirk SperlingManager, Yara Belle Plaine (Temporary Assignment, Returned to Europe)
"David comes 100% present to every meeting. I work in a fast-paced environment & at the beginning of every meeting David is calm and collected. He coaches by example & is responsive and honest in his approach. His sense of presence, his "non-verbal" communication is contagious. I became keenly aware of this and the effect it has on me during our sessions. His coaching is seamless. He breaks it down for you simply & coaches you to become more aware of how you think, feel & communicate. David helped me grow, press the reset button and build positive leadership skills in the process."Tara Reichert, P.EngPrincipal Structural Engineer, JCK Engineering Inc.
