He brings a sense of humour and authenticity to a subject he has been researching over the last 23 years.

He’s carried out 250+ interviews with top achievers and takes inspiration from this research to see how this learning, behaviour and wisdom can be applied to get better results for people and for businesses.

When David is in the room, you instantly understand who he is and what he stands for.

FUN, challenging and inter-active delivery with a bullish nature that engages, educates and entertains his audiences the world over. David has presented to over 1 MILLION people in the last 22 years.

“Possibly… if not THE best speaker I have ever seen”

- Barclaycard

"attended almost every Directors & Managers seminar Specsavers have had for the past 10 years, your presentation was by far the most motivating and inspiring I have seen.”

- Specsavers

"David came recommended by two international speakers. He delivered on his promise to motivate the audience, and that is no mean feat. A room full of dentists. But he engaged them to set a clear direction to make their future far bigger, brighter, bolder than their past. This is our twelfth annual conference, and David is in the top 3 speakers."


"David opened our 2018 personal development annual conference to over 500 delegates, with his renowned Goals presentation and his impact on the audience was phenomenal – received amazing feedback."


"We went rhino, we set massive goals, and we doubled our stores and swept the board at the Sunday Times Small Business Awards”

“I laughed as I learnt!"
