Whether you are getting started in public speaking or looking to hone your craft I cannot recommend David highly enough. David was my mentor from Toastmasters’ “confident communicator” through to my TEDX talk. His approach is empathic and compassionate; he can nurture you, and your talk, into a confident and skilled delivery. His speech crafting and delivery insights are packed with great wisdom; he has studied his craft for years and seemingly small tweaks have a massive impact on how the messages are received by the audience. David is an absolute delight to work with and I look forward to doing so again. Thank you for helping me realise a long-held dream and being able to deliver when it counted… on the big red dot (TEDX)!
…excellent coaching and insights
David made an enormous difference to my ability as a speaker and my general well being, several years ago and continues to make a difference years later. I always say David played a key role in my success as I don’t think I would have stuck it out if it wasn’t for his excellent coaching and insights into what I needed to do to succeed. My skills as a speaker and confidence to grab life to the full and appreciate it as moved on in heaps and bounds. I highly recommend David as a coach. I’ve never worked with such a dedicated and hard working individual who truly cares about his clients and his work. He will make a difference for you and your business, just trust the process. Feel free to contact me directly if you wish to discuss how David can make a difference for you.
…confident, authentic and inspirational
David has an excellent and unique approach to public speaking coaching where he incorporates authenticity, mindfulness and the effective concept of ‘being present’ within your speeches. I have been fortunate to have David as a public speaking mentor for the last two years after meeting him at Leicester Leaders Speaking Club. David captured my attention at Leicester Leaders with his confident, authentic and inspirational speeches. David has kindly mentored me to deliver many speeches over the years but the most important one was my Groom’s Speech. With David’s help and mentoring I managed to get over my speech anxiety to deliver a confident, humorous and heartfelt speech, which was very well received by our wedding party. David is extremely thoughtful, professional and encouraging in his teaching. He will push you as far as you’re willing to go with your speaking skills. I owe David a great deal, and would wholeheartedly recommend him with confidence.
I worked alongside David in the Toastmasters organization for many years. We were keen competitors in Speech competitions and David helped me to raise my game. His leadership qualities were clearly on display during his President’s stint. Davids biggest quality I believe is his ability to coach and evaluate and he gives his time freely to help others to pursue excellence.
…helped me gain confidence
I met David at Toastmasters and I found him to be very helpful in helping me in my journey to improve my speaking. David was my mentor and he helped me gain confidence, gave great feedback and always encouraged me whenever I felt nervous. My speaking skills improved immensely under his leadership. He is very good at mentoring and coaching new speakers and I highly recommend him.
