"David is energetic, hugely bright, capable and great fun. He knows his market, is well connected and driven to make a difference for his clients. As a valued former colleague, I always appreciated his input and support and we miss his highly successful, enthusiastic approach to developing business in our firm."
Anne Fergusson, Director at PwC London
"David's sessions have introduced a new enthusiasm for business development. His engaging and informative sessions have encouraged our lawyers to feel more confident in their abilities to target, attract, win and retain clients - without feeling as if they are sales people. Whilst many of his audience felt they were aware of what needed to be done, the training provided practical guidance and support, enabling them to plan and try out strategies, thereby developing their confidence and increasing their chances of winning pitches and new business."
Heidi Simpson, COO of Lamport Bassitt
“Having worked with David in the past, I can recommend him as both a trainer and a coach.
When coaching me, David helped me maintain a focus on my own goals and objectives, but he also continually reminded me of my audience and stakeholders best interests and ensured they were front of mind.
David not only challenged in a positive way, but made practical suggestions to improve my offering and ensured I delivered a truly client focussed product."
Richard Gwynne, Director of Debt Recovery at Shoosmiths
"Having worked with David on a number of client proposals and presentations, I found his input invaluable and his approach engaging which resulted in an improvement to both my technique and confidence.
During his training programmes, I have always found that David has a way of getting across the objective of the content, capturing the attention of the audience, making them want to get back to work in order to use the skills he has helped them develop.
I have in the past and would continue to recommend David to anyone who wants to improve their business development skills either on an on-going basis or if you have a particular proposal or presentation."
Carolyn Hobbs, Owner of Complete Cash Management Limited
"I very much enjoyed the presentation and style of training that David provides. The sessions we have attended complement our existing strategies and have opened us up to more interactive meetings and brain storming sessions. I feel that all who have attended have benefited from the training sessions and look forward to working with David further in the future."
Danielle Bishop, Marketing Executive at Lamport Bassitt
"The value David can add when coaching is tremendous. He has an extremely natural coaching style that put me totally at ease and it is obvious to see that he is a master at presentations himself. I was able to take on board his suggestions and ideas, adapt them to my own style and grow as a presenter as a result.
For me the biggest positive was the confidence David gave me, this meant that on the day I was not so nervous and worried and was able to give what I hope was a natural, flowing performance that both conveyed my message and endeared me to my audience.
The coaching David gave me not only helped me with a significant presentation I had to give, but will also make me think differently for all future presentations and also the way I can use those skills in other situations. I look forward to working with David again soon."
Philippa Robinson, Corporate Finance Director at C W Fellowes
"David’s strategy training sessions brought home the value on how we best develop opportunities with both existing clients and prospects by making them aware of how the firm might help them with their needs and informing them of the full breadth of the services we offer.
David managed the whole process in an engaging and entertaining way. He ensured we utilised the experience from other disciplines to help with fresh thinking and cross-selling"
Rick Munro, Corporate Partner at Lamport Bassitt
"I worked with David when we were both at PwC. He provided excellent insight into sales opportunities and his coaching helped us increase our success rate on proposals and pitches. I am happy to recommend him."
Greg Rubins, Public Sector Partner at BDO
"David helped and coached me in order to ensure my presentations to different internal departments was to the highest standard in terms of the way my messages were conveyed and the way in which I presented them.
He is very positive, helpful and highly knowledgeable in this field. David helped me feel assured that the presentation I was sharing with my colleagues was on message, fitted the audiences need and was in line with highest standards and guidelines. It was a pleasure working with David and given the opportunity, I would certainly work with him again."
Anna Frick, Senior Consultant of the International Division at Investigo
