About me

Are you winning in business and life?

Having somewhere to unpack and make sense of your challenges, opportunities, thoughts and feelings can be critical in this crazy world of ours. I'm very fortunate to have spent the last 30 years, as a business leader and then a coach, helping all manner of people make huge leaps in their careers, impact, happiness and confidence.

My coaching practice is varied and extensive working with both individuals and teams. Helping Small Business owners and Start-ups is a real passion for me, drawing upon years of practical experience.

Having spent years in and supporting businesses, I appreciate that coaching support has to be practical with straightforward outcomes that are aligned to your business, venture or career goals.

That’s why I became an accredited and experienced practitioner of Insights Discovery and Lumina Spark, which facilitate the dynamics required to make teams and individuals perform. As a Coach, I am accredited by Middlesex University and the Association for Coaching as well as being an UpAGear practitioner, blending work and personal goals to create winning outcomes in both business and life.

My approach is straight forward and practical, centred around you and your business goals, combining high support with high challenge.

"Dave provides simultaneous challenge and insight. I always leave our discussions feeling more energised and focused – he is a real pleasure to work with."
Amanda Callaghan (Corporate Affairs Director, British Retail Consortium)

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
