WHAT OTHER’S SAY
David works with clients across a broad range of industries. Some are seeking business mentoring, reduced stress and increased profitability through operational efficiency, others are looking for facilitation and strategic consulting, accountability, leadership development, financial accounting guidance, succession planning or even an exit plan. David's experience, financial and commercial sense make him a valuable asset to any business leader. But don't just take our word for it. Here's some feedback from existing clients…
They say "It’s lonely at the top", I have found this to be true particularly through tough times both in business and personally. Through my mentoring sessions with David he has always made me feel that I am not alone and that he is always there to support me. David has a great way of keeping me honest and accountable, given the daily pressures in business, simple constant guidance like this can make all of the difference.
David worked with our Business prior to me becoming its owner in 2019. As an employee of the Business I was able to see the positive influence of David’s advice to the previous owner, shown primarily in our systems, processes and firm’s administration getting better over time. After purchasing the Business, I have worked closely with David regarding every facet of the Business’s operation, from profits to staff culture. We have been fortunate to enjoy fantastic growth and I believe that much is owed to David’s influence with our records, reporting, systems and strategies that help our business flourish in a healthy and sustainable way. David was there when we needed him throughout the uncertain times in the pandemic, he was there when I was eager yet nervous young Director coming into a well established business, and he is here now helping shape me into the Business professional I have become since. I am grateful for David’s strategic advice when it comes to my most valuable asset, and I would highly recommend his services to other businesses.’
BRADLEY + BRAY
Having worked alongside David over 5 years and, based on this experience, I chose to recommend his services to my own family. We could not be happier with the result. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional and insightful in matters of business and family...and all the interconnected complexity.
Working with David is like having a personal trainer for my business. He keeps me accountable. If I make a commitment to someone other than myself, I’m far more likely to follow through. Plus he's not tied up in the day to day so he can help me remain focused on the bigger picture. That helps me stay on track. As a sole business owner it’s easy to be distracted by what's urgent and delay what’s really important. There’s no immediate consequence. David’s also been a great sounding board. He’s experienced the challenges of owning and operating businesses and his work with other clients means he has a solution for many issues as they arise. I don’t need to sort through it on my own, or worry about finding a fix through trial and error.
David and I met at a Government backed mentoring workshop. He stood out due to his calm and methodical approach. Over the last year he has provided invaluable advice and support across many aspects of my business. David has helped with staffing issues and selection, client liaisons and sales bottlenecks. He has helped me to understand a more desirable financial structure and to turn losses into profit. David predicted downturns in cashflow due to decisions and, often avoidable, events which has helped me learn to plan for business resilience. As the business has stabilised and we have developed a steady pipeline of work, David and I will concentrate on systems to allow for expansion. David’s regular face to face and phone conversations have kept me accountable. He has also worked closely with my office manager to create reports which are easy to understand. The last year has also been a particularly challenging year for me personally. David has provided some support in this area, but more importantly, he has helped me keep focus on my business. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending David to any other business owner looking to streamline or grow their business. I look forward to where his professional approach can take us.

David's financial analysis skills and genuine understanding of what makes a business tick have been our advantage and resulted in improved profitability and cash flow within the the first 12 months of working with him. David's also been a great personal support to me as the sole owner of the business. He’s listened to my needs, provided practical business and leadership advice and been a great sounding board. Plus he’s managed to keep me accountable to my own goals.

It’s been great working with David. He’s the ideal sounding board for discussing everything from day to day challenges, through to strategic issues and business growth opportunities. As a leader of a business, it’s extremely valuable having someone with a strong commercial ability to discuss ideas with. Someone with an interest in my personal success and that of the business, yet impartial to the situation. David is seriously good at what he does. We’ve tried a number of consultants and advisors in the past without as much success. I'd happily recommend you contact David and see what he can do for you and your business.
