Welcome to David South Consulting!


We have been delivering content to websites since 1996. If we call that 1.0 of our web journey (Canada’s id magazine), then the upcoming gridded WordPress website is version 6.0. On that journey there have been many highs (winning awards and travelling the world) and innovations. For a first-time visitor, I would recommend snooping around and using the Search tool at the top of the page. There is journalism, knowledge-sharing, data, plus big-picture papers, historical works and raw material archived from the many projects I have worked on. The new front page for the website will capture all of this and point readers to the best bits of the website. Importantly, this is a living and breathing work-in-progress and whilst the majority of content is archival (going back to 1991), the key thematic areas – health, human development, innovation – will come alive with new work. And, yes, it is possible to sponsor and advertise on this blog. We will be posting the criteria for suitable advertising soon (we have been receiving many requests so we do need to offer some clarity: think UN Global Compact meets Monocle meets Wired meets MIT Technology Review). Finally, thank you to the long list of amazing collaborators and supporters over the years! David South, Senior Partner
