As a seasoned and experienced motivational speaker, I bring a warmth of relationship with the audience and a lightness to touch that enables the serious topics of personal and corporate identity and resilience to be tackled in an engaging and thought provoking way.


Here’s what the School of Social Entrepreneurs had to say:

“David came to talk to our Lloyds start up students at The School for Social Entrepreneurs. He was briefed to tell his story and to share his tips on resilience to support our adult learners as they head out into the world of social entrepreneurship. The students’ feedback at the end of the session was that his illuminating story, both humorous and compelling, created insights in themselves to support them in their own journeys. His engaging style and easy manner kept us all listening actively and sent us away with tips and thoughts on how to navigate the journey just that little bit more confidently, knowing that others too tread those paths and reach new horizons in doing so. David was an inspiring speaker and one we would ask to come along again to support our students in the future.”

...and from Jono Byrne - Final Year Student at the School of Social Entrepreneurs:


“David’s open and humorous telling of the highs and lows of his own remarkable professional and personal journey created a fertile space for me to re-think how I should describe my own. David’s recent talk to our School for Social Entrepreneurs cohort encouraged valuable reflections on balancing openness to vulnerability with a commitment to faith in our future journeys. Steering the tortuous path between communicating over-confident hubris and navel-gazing pathos is an enduring challenge for any Social Entrepreneur when ‘pitching their idea’ – David has helped me to find a better balance in how I tell the story of my past life, present objectives, and hopes for the future.”
