"Thanks to Dave’s passion for understanding people at a very deep and genuine level, I was able to discover that the path to my dreams was much more well kept than I let myself believe. What I thought was going to be a practical rundown on how to set goals, was a journey down one of my rabbit holes in the middle of a busy coffee shop with dogs barking at other dogs right next to us, on a busy street crowded with motorcycles and other Bali action. I also appreciated that Dave seemed to be ready to, at any point, become vulnerable if he felt that it would help me understand how I was blocking myself from the whole picture. His connection to the place where we are all the same, made his offerings safe even with the chaos of dogs loudly barking."
"Each time I have met Dave, whether casually or in a more structured meeting, he has offered inspiring, uplifting insights to emotionally-challenging situations. And each time I walk away with renewed vigour to pause, reflect and step into my truth and compassion. Through discussions with Dave, my husband and I have managed to turn a difficult family situation into something positive, peaceful and ultimately empowering to each one of us."
Belinda Sircombe-JellettCEO/Founder, Wild Fitness
"What was inspirational was Dave’s willingness, keenness and openness to be present and provide insight from his own experience and wisdom. He has an uplifting spirit and energy and it felt like he wanted more than ever for us to be freed up to see more possibility in our work and ways of organizing it. What was transformational was his explanation of the difference between a leader and a manager and his way of helping us see more value in what we offer the world. What has changed? I have created space in my life to allow the leadership qualities to emerge and am making decisions that put me in the driver’s seat of what I offer to the world and how I do it rather than feeling I am trying to keep up with an assumed reality/position with reference to my work. Thanks Dave!"
Susan AllenFounder/Leader/Educator, Yellow Coco Creative Nest
"Working with Dave was a gift. It was a gift I gave myself without even knowing it. And as time went by, I felt the benefits of our work together more and more. Dave helped me see myself in a different way.
Dave challenges the norm. He has a way of seeing through all of the noise and the nonsense and goes straight to the heart of the issue and asks the true questions that matter. What is even more, is that months later I still think, and implement tools that I learned when I was working with him.
After each session with Dave I felt uplifted, energized and ready to conquer the world. Dave is not a magician, but if you come ready to work and be honest with yourself, he will change your world. At least he did for me."

"Dave is a real professional and we learned a lot during our course. Highly recommend."

"Many people know me and how balanced and perfect my life seems. But really, I needed a little help becoming a better man to my family and friends. I gained such incredible tools to help with my relationships. It helped me be a better communicator with my partner, family and friends. I can't recommend this program enough that I'm thinking about joining it again. This is a positive life changer not to be missed. You can go about your daily life or gain wisdom and skill sets to improve all aspects of your relationships. I also met and bonded with some incredible men who will be in my life forever. My relationships have deepened and I'm so thankful to have been able to experience a program like this. Dave is the best!"
Leo KwokCEO/Owner Nakama International Ltd , Owner Partner, Titi Batu Ubud Club
"Very well run course with Dave as a very caring and compassionate facilitator. We went pretty deep individually and as a group bonded well together. There are so many options for self development, this is the one to pick! Try to get in men, it can easily be the best week of your life."
"Dave develops a strong bond and creates trust with the individual he's working with. Then he pokes the bear and calls you out on your bullshit. It's great! One of the things I appreciate most is his ability to put a different perspective on anything and relate whatever we're talking about to something that really resonates with me. Life doesn't have to be tough. You can change all the 'bad' things that keep happening to you. You have the power to create change in your life if you want to, I have seen Dave make this happen for our staff. Hiring Dave when I was the COO was a polarizing decision in our company. But from where I sit now, as CEO, I have seen nothing but positive outcomes. Our business is thriving, and although Dave will tell you I did it, it had a lot to do with his coaching. Dave has helped me change my personal life and business life in a way that has allowed me to spend less time at work and more quality time with my family while performing at a higher level than before. Thank you Dave!"

"Dave is an intuitive, creative, thoughtful and thought provoking gentleman. His authentic, caring energetic, and compassionate nature inspire in me a renewed passion to pursue change each time we meet. He provides the challenge I need to address the things that hold me back. If you are seeking change from within yourself or from those around you, you would benefit from engaging Dave."
Evan KelletOwner/CSO, Macdonald's Home Health Care
"My time with Dave has been enlightening and perspective-altering. I find his energy and enthusiasm inspiring! Dave helped me acknowledge things about myself and how I handle and view the life events and people around me. He pushed me when I needed it, supported me when I was as low as I've ever been, and helped remind me of just how many people I have in my life who care about me. Dave approach is no bullshit! He can read people and ascertain if they need a firmer approach or a more gentle hand and forms his plan for working with them around that. The way he keeps you accountable but doesn't make challenges or tasks feel like 'homework' is refreshing. He's helped me appreciate and remember that I can't write a story about something that hasn't happened or that is beyond my control. Why let yourself be eaten up by worry about something that hasn't happened? Dave will provide you with tools to for training yourself to think a different way, to hopefully work through old habits ingrained from childhood, and begin finding the best version of yourself that you have the potential to be....He's funny and quirky. I'd recommend that just about anyone take the chance to meet him in any setting!"
Heather ThornburnCustomer Service Manager, Macdonald's Home Health Care
"I see life through a lens that presents challenges that need to be solved. And I learn through challenging, some might call it arguing. Dave has been an amazing conduit to find internal peace during hard situations and reveal my skills, to see all these challenges as opportunities rather than barriers. Dave is a very positive person, a man of his word who would never give up on his goal. I now feel more peaceful in my life, I better manage my stress when I am under pressure and have better empathy when it comes to interpersonal communication. I take things less personally, understand with better attention, understand where others are coming from, and widen my vision when it comes to analyzing situations.""

"I would describe Dave as life changing, REAL, and positive. He is the most caring person I've known. Dave came into my life at such an unstable time in my divorce - I believe that I was able to keep my children with me because of Dave. I will always remember that. When I started my journey with Dave, being the person that I was, there was a lot of scepticism. Like anyone else, I didn't think there was anything wrong with me or the kind the kind of person I was, but he was welcoming to my beliefs and scepticism, embraced it, and eventually showed me the value of the work that he does. He is an incredibly patient man. He is able to identify you as a person, pays attention to you as a person, and talks to you about you and your environment. Working with Dave has been one of the best things that could have ever happened to me. My relationships have improved. My approach has improved. My perception has improved. My life has improved. For me, being REAL is more important than showing yourself as someone you are not, Dave is genuinely the person he is, all the time! I believe that anyone who is able to get this level of coaching should approach Dave."
Eduardo JimenezLead Technician & Service Coordinator, Macdonald's Home Health Care
""I was fortunate enough to meet Dave shortly after moving to British Columbia and starting a new job. I was really struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel with a baby on the way and taking a gamble with my career half way across the Country, but with his precise and personal approach and understanding he has helped me tremendously. He’s led me to see my full potential in my personal and professional life. We managed to dig deep and finally let go of my biggest regrets and harness the positive in my life. And now I have really become the best version of myself. Dave has always supported me and been there for me and has never lost hope or belief in my potential even when I didn’t see it at all. Dave is an absolutely amazing coach and he will, without question, change your life for the better! ""
