Learn about David from his fans, clients,
and business associates.

After doing a two day session and then a follow up session with David I have nothing but great things to say about his services, teaching and approach.  Everyone no matter what age or experience level would benefit from his insights and methods.  Wish I had two more days with his insights.

J.L.

David’s energy and style are amazing.  I have been to several leadership/management courses and he is the best I have experienced.

PARTICIPANT ON UNILEVER’S ‘BEYOND ADVANCED’ LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

I turned 50 during our workshop.  I have been with the company for 30 years.  This was the most effective and productive meeting I have ever attended.

MEMBER OF BPW GLOBAL MARKETING TEAM

From start to finish his services were professional and profoundly impactful.  I found David to be ethical and dedicated, responsive to our unique needs and reassuring in his ability to get to the heart of what we were trying to achieve at the conference.  There were some serious messages…

in this for us, but delivered with such humour and generosity of spirit that is unique to David’s style, that we positively embraced the key messages.  I highly recommend David to any organisation wishing to truly embrace its strengths and weaknesses.

CULTURE DEVELOPMENT MANAGER BATH & NORTH EAST SOMERSET COUNCIL

When we first engaged with David Firth, we did so because we realized we had a very disparate corporate culture, no formalised process for providing feedback up and down the hierarchy, and we had functions, and functional leaders, who worked in silos.  We knew the issues, but didn’t…

know how to fix them.  Enter David Firth.  We engaged David in 2010 to help us address and work through these high level organisational inefficiencies.  By working with the Leadership Team, as well as the staff, as a whole, David has helped us realize our potential of being the best IOC Television & Marketing Services we can be.  He helped us define the culture we said we wanted and has supported us endlessly throughout the process.  As evidence of David’s value-add, according to our most recent employee culture survey, we have experienced many improvements on various organisational aspects.  In fact, over 80% of staff feel positively about David’s involvement, trainings and facilitation of our staff meetings.  We realise there is still a road ahead of us, because, as we’ve learned from David, there’s always room for improvement, but it’s fulfilling to look back on far we’ve come in our journey.  And we have appreciated David’s honesty, his experience and his ever-present willingness to do what it takes to advise and help us along the way.

IOC TELEVISION & MARKETING SERVICES, THE MARKETING DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE

I was looking for thought leadership – and someone whose methodology focuses on working with large groups and in the space of changing the dynamic around conversations, as that underpins all elements of the change process in my experience.  David Firth fitted this bill: both from…

his challenge to work on “conversations for change” as opposed to “conversations for confirmation” – a pithy focus which demands a solution basis from all and a rejection of the status quo, and from his positive approach and larger than life personality which brings huge energy and enthusiasm to complex change challenges rooted in people’s attitudes and emotions.

SENIOR DIRECTOR OF ORGANIZATION DEVELOPMENT & HUMAN RESOURCES, AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL

Your support has been transformational for me.

M.D.

[The Leadership Program] was a great experience.  I think we all learnt that the best we can be is ourselves, so relaxing into that was what made the difference.  Thank you for your support, coaching and patience!

MARS EXECUTIVE

After each coaching session with David it feels for me like leaving the petrol station with a tank full of high octane fuel.  To have the elan, and enthusiasm to fight; also with the confidence that it’s a right thing to do.  And figuring out concretely where to start off.

GLOBAL BRAND DIRECTOR

I can’t thank you enough for Friday’s session – and the positive impact and discussions your LiveChat has already begun to provoke in the office.  It is great to see – mindsets changing, thought patterns being challenged…

LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT ROYAL BOROUGH OF KINGSTON UPON THAMES

I just wanted to mail you to say thanks.  I can honestly say that without you I could not have gone through with it.  You made me believe in myself and my ability to get up there and do this and for that I am eternally grateful.  Your course was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone.  Thanks again…

David, you were an inspiration and a brilliant mentor.

You are so, so, so cool!
