Here’s what clients say about David:
“David, you have been fantastic and a great support, it has been an absolute pleasure working with you and getting to know you through my journey on the MBA, I cannot stress how useful it was to have access to your coaching/mentoring throughout the past 18 months, not only for the MBA but through my transition into the new role too.”
“You are brilliant at what you do and I consider myself very lucky to have had you as a coach”
“Through Dave’s coaching, the confidence I had in my own ability grew substantially and I was successfully able to achieve some substantial career mile markers which previously were just dreams. I would strongly recommend Dave to anybody who is looking to enhance themselves both on a personal and professional level”
James was a Cyber Security Analyst who had worked for a number of financial services organisations but had not been able to break through into the management and leadership positions to which he ultimately aspired. Although gaining regular exposure to senior leaders, he felt like he was always the one doing the running and picking up all the actions – until that is he spoke with David. Through a coaching investment of just £250, in a series of conversations with David focussed on career progression, James switched jobs and increased his salary by nearly 50%. He now leads teams within a blue-chip technology company that is a household name in the sports and gaming industry.
