Over the last couple of years Dave has provided coaching support during a period of transition. His style is relaxed and supportive, encouraging you to work through challenges to arrive at a clear action plan you believe in. He is also extremely good at assessing behaviours and helping you to understand how the actions of you and others has an important part to play in success of business relationships.

I have received coaching and support from Dave for some years and welcome his valuable insight in helping to resolve work and personal challenges. Working with Dave highlighted the importance of considering all options that might be available in order to achieve solutions and the best way to manage important working relationships in order to deliver corporate and personal objectives.

Dave has provided great coaching to many of us at First Wessex, including many of our senior people. His relaxed insightful approach enables people to reflect on, discover, and understand key aspects of their leadership and management styles, and through expertise, discussion and advice he enables people to take their skills on to a new level. I would highly recommend Dave to anyone seeking to further their professional development – he is a first class coach.

Working with Dave was a real turning point in my career. His supporting and challenging approach brings out new self awareness and certainly helped me improve both my performance and my management. He listens and channels one to self realisation that determines ways to follow with day-to-day challenges.

Dave has been my personal coach for a considerable period of time, helping me successfully manage the transition from one employer to another, helping me develop personal skills and behaviours, commercial acumen and appropriate relationship management to ensure a successful career path.
Dave has a great ability to understand complex issues and relationships, and his approach to supporting me in arriving at the most appropriate or best course of action, given the specific circumstances at the time, have been invaluable to me.
Dave is structured in his approach, ensuring all issues that are important to me are covered during each coaching session, giving as much time as needed without any feeling of pressure or time constraint, but ensuring focus and identified outcomes are achieved.
Dave has a huge wealth of knowledge and experience at hand, and is always able to relate issues on a personal and real level, having great empathy whilst at the same time skill at probing issues to help me identify potential solutions.
Dave is not afraid to challenge, question or disagree, and always provides reasoned and sound justification for doing so in a non threatening and constructive manner, giving me the opportunity to consider ideas and issues from different perspectives.
I would not hesitate in recommending Dave as a coach
