Biography

I never intended being an entrepreneur.

I was happily expending my energies as an educator/trainer as well as mentor and consultant. Then it all changed. On sabbatical during 2015 I decided to set up my own business doing the things I love most, my two greatest passions – self growth, and helping others grow! I have been passionate about self development and personal growth all my adult life, and I have harnessed that energy and passion to serve others in pursuit of their own growth as a ‘person’. 

I believe that all people are imbued with the great mystery pervading the universe and human consciousness. I have an abiding conviction about the infinite possibilities in every person, without distinction. My personal statement is ‘to equip people and organisations to understand themselves better, and to release their potential faster, more effectively, and with greater confidence’. 

I want to work with people who dare to dream, who want to overcome obstacles, connect with their passion, release their potential, and let their dignity shine; so that they and others can rejoice in who they are, how they relate, and what they do. 

My experience ranges from personal coaching, mentoring and consultancy, to public speaking, training and education. I offer training in managing stress, building resilience, personality profiling, conflict transformation, emotional intelligence, as well as communication and change.

Testimonials

What some of my coaching clients have said:

“David does not create a dependency, he creates a passion for the next stage and a pathway to get to where we want to be.”

Lynne Smith, Older Persons Service Co-Ordinator

“David helped me to feel at ease in my sessions, as well as helping me to challenge my approach and increase my self-belief, which is something I have found to be very rewarding.”

Jennifer Toase, Volunteer Mentor

“David always allowed me time to talk out the various strands that were causing me to be blocked, anxious and indeed paralysed. It was if David had given me a new working compass by which I could navigate my problems once more myself.”

Kevin Henson, Business Owner & IT Consultant

“David is deeply a sincere, kind, and gentle man. He is very focused, I never felt judged, and in David’s sessions I had real insight. I found his coaching to be the most powerful and beneficial of all the coaching I have received.”

Sanae Floyd, Business Coach & Sales Mentor for Independent Coaches

“David is a trustworthy, elegant professional. If you dare to dream, he won’t pop your ballon; David will help it to fly high.”

Bill King, Director – Hearing Dogs for Deaf People

What some of my training clients have said:

“I have known David and his work for many years. He is passionate about developing people and, recognising that we are all different and respond in different ways, has developed his own skills to give him an extensive toolbox to help others.”

Tony Hill, Independent Public Health Consultant & Strategist

“David is an excellent trainer and sets clear goals which illuminate and encourage those who are searching for self understanding. Definitely to be recommended.”

Beverley Nixon, Travel & Tour Co-Ordinator

“David has a wealth of experience in the fields of public speaking, training, teaching, coaching, consultancy, team building, leadership development and associated activities.”

Jeremy Pemberton, Equality & Diversity Consultant

“The (DISC) workshop did not disappoint! The Trainer had a professional, yet warm style of presentation which ensured everyone felt immediately at ease. This enabled frank discussions around our own personality traits and how these relate to our Leadership style. The impact was immediate, in that we very quickly gelled as a team because we understood each other and, in particular, why we are the way we are!”

Sandie Holmes, Headteacher
