Here’s a little more about David:

David is passionate about many things. Indeed a defining characteristic of David is his passion for the things that he chooses to give his attention to. A father, a husband, a film-maker, a coach and a business owner.

For many years David followed a corporate career, although was always more interested in the process of change, rather than the underlying businesses he worked in.

David was first introduced to the foundations of personal transformation in 1996, and in 2005 this culminated in leaving the traditional corporate world and setting up a coaching and consulting business in 2005.

Over the years David’s work and his coaching have evolved to where he is today. The coaching has become simpler, deeper, slower. More often than not simply offering the space to be deeply heard.

From this style of coaching a new dimension of film making has emerged, perhaps the most powerful work that David has and continues to do. A process of listening in silence, present to whatever words emerge and capturing them in beautiful short films. Sometimes personal. Sometimes shared.
