"A perfect feedback score"

“His support has made all the difference.”

“Having an idea is only part of the solution. Getting your idea out there in the most compelling way is crucial. I will be eternally grateful to David’s Executive Presence Coaching, helping turn my ideas into something much more emotive and captivating. His support has made all the difference.”

Philippa White

“Mind-blowing and life-changing.”

“Thank you so much for the insightful principles, David! I honestly hope that more female leaders will have the opportunity to be part of your sessions: they are mind-blowing and life-changing.”

“Would absolutely recommend his training to other team and business leaders.”

“David’s charisma and enthusiasm, alongside his focus on tailoring individual and team development journeys, resulted in me taking multiple key new mindsets away from the time we spent together…

David’s training provided more junior members of my team with valuable insights into how to engage with clients and colleagues (and maybe partners!). For the more senior members, it challenged our status quo mindset, and encouraged us to take different viewpoints.

I am really pleased that many team members have requested additional 1:1 training with David following our sessions, and would absolutely recommend his training to other team and business leaders.”

Nick Russell

Senior Investment Director

Investec London

“The results are already showing!”

“I had the pleasure of spending a few days learning from David at Henley Business School on a professional communication workshop aimed at our highly analytical team and management…


David used the time we had to share powerful insights on how we could take the mangled mess of data that we work through daily and transform that into tangible business insights. Moreover, he taught principles and frameworks that would enable us to present this information in the most meaningful, impactful way.


David doesn't teach PowerPoint or generic hacks. This was highly valuable and walking out of there, it felt more like our team spoke the same language - the results are already showing!


Time with David is guaranteed to be well spent.

“Far exceeded my expectations: it is vastly different to any other training course”

“This course far exceeded my expectations: it is vastly different from any other training I have been on. The content is well-structured and positively thought-provoking.

My one-on-one coaching session with David was extremely humbling… In a world full of numbers, I tend to get caught up in the details. However, this course was most enlightening as it gave me an understanding of where my major areas of development are and how to significantly improve on them, which has enabled me to better come out of my shell.

I would certainly recommend this course as well as the one-on-one sessions to all who intend to excel in their corporate careers. This course will definitely give you the edge.”

"One of the most edge of your seat speaker"

“One of the most “edge of your seat” speakers I have ever had the pleasure of meeting with. His talks are extremely informative and engaging.”

“A platform for behaviour change.”

“What's unique about David is the speed and efficiency with which he combines theory with practical application to ensure a platform for behaviour change is delivered.

This element surpassed that of other courses we’ve embarked on - placing people in an environment which allows for real-time immediate growth. Some of my team's comments were “I have taken away skills I know I will use for the rest of my career as well as in my personal life”. Our teams found the experience “fresh” and finished the course feeling excited.

David’s coaching stems from his own personal development journey, which means that he knows what it takes to effect personal behaviour change. Through deep insights and observation, he identifies the underlying drivers of your behaviour to identify simple and easily implementable solutions.”

Jennifer Arendse

“His coaching was
tailored to me

Working with David has had a positive impact on my professional career – I have received
feedback that I am more engaged and assertive. This has helped me obtain more respect
from my peers and to have challenging or difficult conversations I would normally avoid. In
my personal life, David’s focus holistic focus was blended in well with my own objectives to
improve myself…

I really like the fact that David is authentic, he draws from his own life experiences –
good/bad and also makes us practice the models that he brings into our discussions with
real-life examples. He is frank with me when he needs to be. He is also available for further
feedback via WhatsApp which I see as a value-add that I truly appreciate. His coaching was
tailored to me as he spent a lot of time trying to understand me and my context first before
coaching began.

I would highly recommend David to other executives. I found his style refreshing, authentic
and focused. For each session he really prepared well and expected the same of me. I have
not experienced this type of practical coaching style before.

“I feel more connected when communicating”

“Heartfelt thanks! David is a delightful, totally engaged presenter and coach… During our coaching session, David was an excellent listener, uses very effective practicing tools during the session for one to express yourself, and provides constructive feedback and brilliant tips, with really manageable shifts to make change possible from day one.


I feel more connected when communicating as a result, and would highly recommend David for anyone seeking a permanent improvement in their communication skills.”

“Measurably better outcomes than previous business school solutions”

“David achieved measurably better outcomes than previous business school solutions we have used to accelerate our talent’s transition into leaders.

What makes it even more remarkable is that it was delivered at significantly less cost, achieved in far less time, and was a genuinely enjoyable (though highly challenging) experience for the talent who were selected for it.”

Yuleesha Naidoo

Executive Head of HR for Discovery Sales, Call Centre and Marketing Businesses

“Undoubtedly the best I have attended.”

I had the privilege of attending training that David presented over two days at Henley Business school. It had a deep impact on me in terms of defining and equipping me with what I need to work on for my personal development and growth.

The person and professional that David is made the training useful, relatable, impactful and undoubtedly the best I have attended yet.


I would highly recommend anyone to invest the time and funds to attend training offered and/or facilitated by David. Can't wait for another opportunity to engage him!
