David is a multi-faceted individual, with experience and qualifications gained in different sectors including financial services, education, damage restoration, ISO and recruitment, working for large household names and also smaller concerns with half a dozen employees. Management roles include Franchise Development, Key Account and National Account Management, with responsibility for large geographical areas and multi-million-pound schemes.
Already interested in people development, David attended a coaching presentation, and with the realisation that he was already coaching albeit informally, decided to study, gaining appropriate knowledge and qualifications, now at Master’s Level.
David’s skill set is a quite unique blend and seeking an opportunity to use such skills most effectively, a leadership and management lecturing role provided the ideal outlet, developing the next generation of managers, with pre-employability training for those seeking employment. With a continuing passion for learning, his most recent qualification is in hypnotherapy, allowing him to offer a higher level of coaching support, focused on continued, embedded mindset change.
An active volunteer for many years, David is currently a Trustee with the Brain Injury Research and Development, and volunteer tutor in conversational English; previous roles include Chartered Management Institute Branch Chair and The Bren Project Charity Trustee. In his spare time, David enjoys reading, travel, all sports-playing and watching, and writing personal development articles for local magazines, and mental health articles for a lifestyle website.
