“Working with Dan has meant overcoming hurdles that have held me back for years.
He shifts focus from questions that seem important, but lead to dead ends; to almost play-like questions, which fast-forward to potentially life changing actions that I never before seriously considered taking.
I’ve progressed more towards my goals in two months than the previous seven years. His follow up includes notes and extra reading materials.”
“Dan is an exceptional coach who brings his whole self and presence to every interaction.
I have been working with Dan for a year and have seen a step change in my clarity with regard to how I continue to navigate the next chapter of my career whilst continuing to be my authentic self.
Being a high performer, it is difficult when you start hitting the apparent ceiling owing to gender, cultural, ethnic and political factors. Since Dan has a wealth of experience with his female client portfolio, the insights and strategies he recommends are relevant and practical.
I’m so glad I decided to work with Dan. The blend of his brain based coaching principles, an astute and experienced coach combined with strong industry experience makes Dan a unique coach and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to catch their next wave.”
“A most inspirational coach with a superb personal model/technique.
Dan surpassed all my expectations and his coaching sessions resulted in greatly improving my confidence and resilience levels as I embarked on a career/job change. His techniques are novel, refreshing and motivational. His grasp of my requirements were spot-on and so his support was exactly what I needed.
I have referred him to many others and he will be the coach I reach out to again, if needed.”
“Dan is an excellent coach.
I have found working with him very helpful in numerous ways. He clearly has in-depth knowledge and insight that he is able to communicate in a very effective way.
I find him to be reliable, professional and would recommend him highly.”
“Working with Dan has been an incredible journey of discovery of what my true passions are and which direction I need to take to excel in my career.
Dan is a patient listener, who walked me through this eye opening process constantly encouraging me and tailoring each coaching session to fit my personality / work style. “
“I find Dan’s approach is structural and effective, he listens well and understands and communicates in a friendly manner, also able to provide guidance to my path of discovery. He helped me a lot in my role in asset management – which is a big change – and the support and insights he provided help me to excel in my job.”
“When I decided to have one-to-one coaching on leadership and career progression with Dan, I knew I had made the right decision.
Each session was very focused and outcome driven which made it easy to clearly see what goals I needed to achieve, how I could get there and what I needed to do to improve myself.
One of the many things that worked really well was the emphasis that was placed on my personal values and beliefs and how I could use that to thrive in a business environment.
I found Dan’s coaching methods progressive, altruistic and thoroughly worth it.”
“It’s been a very pleasing journey with Dan’s coaching.
I had identified some areas I wanted to work on and with the coaching, Dan has helped put together actionable strategies and, more importantly, guided me on how one can approach the subject with a different mindset and way of thinking.
To me this makes a much bigger impact as I’m a firm believer we are in control of our own success and destiny, and it is a powerful tool when we are able to think and approach in new or recurring situations.
Dan had been very supportive and encouraging throughout the coaching. I found the session notes very structured and it is something I will refer to, whenever I need a reminder.”
“Having taken a short career break to raise my young family, I was lacking confidence and direction in my job search. Session Zero with Dan really helped to me to gain clarity, confidence and self-awareness. It gave me the boost I needed to find and land the perfect role.
Dan is a very effective career coach and provided invaluable help with my personal branding and clarity around my values.
I would thoroughly recommend him and look forward to working with him again.”
“I really liked the informality of the session and how easily you were able to draw-out thoughts and ideas from me. Together, we were able to identify and address various problems and form cohesive and tangible thoughts around them. As a result of coaching, I have noticed a change in my daily motivation and can see a clear path of how to tackle work. I now think more holistically about what I do and how it contributes to the bigger picture.
I would, without reservation, recommend you and your coaching service – especially as someone who started the session without direction or even an idea of what it was that I wanted to achieve, I left the session with purpose and a clear idea of my plan of action, pleasantly surprised by what I learned about myself and very pleased with the outcome!”
“It became clear to me that Dan has a tailored approach to each person and doesn’t use the “one size fits all” model. He helped me to develop a strategy of becoming more confident (and, consequently, happier) by transforming negative attitudes and gaining success – at work in particular, and in life as a whole. Thank you very much Dan!”
“I connected with Dan recently via a link posted in a local business networking site and downloaded an ebook he had produced. A number of the statements resonated with me and I found his approach positive and refreshing.
I then had an opportunity to undertake a coaching session and it was an enlightening experience.
Dan asked gentle probing questions that forced me to think about my core values and how those were applied to my life/business. With those in my mind we then discussed personal beliefs and how those could be blocking achievement of my goals and aspirations.
Combining those thoughts we looked at how those values and beliefs gave me, both in business and in general, a purpose that drives me forward.
Throughout the session Dan was supportive but also he challenged my answers to make me think differently or from a different perspective.
I ended the session feeling lighter, positive and energised, but with much to think about. I regularly review the notes from the session, as I incorporated some into my goals, to keep on track with business/life objectives.”
“I’m so glad I chose to coach with you. It’s the best career decision I ever made.”
“I came to coaching as I was feeling a generalised anxiety around my career and career options. There was a level of uncertainty around my current role, but more concerning was my own lack of clarity around what I wanted to move to where I had established about 10 different options.
I sought coaching with Dan to process this and try and sort through it, along with having some accountability not to let this continually revert to the back burner in light of my very demanding day job.
By the end of my coaching with Dan, I really did feel I had clarity on the 2 or 3 options that were the best fit along with a plan A, B and C!
I would recommend Dan as a coach to anyone with career transitions on their mind struggling to work it out on their own.”
“In less than 3 months, Dan has helped me make significant improvements in terms of enhancing my visibility among senior leadership which has led to an increase in the scope of my responsibilities. I highly recommend him.”
“In Spring of 2015, I was asked to assess Dan’s professional capability as a coach against the ICF competencies. From that experience, I can happily and in all integrity vouch for his coaching skill and ethics.
He was diligent and caring in setting up the coaching relationship, developing high levels of trust early. In coaching me, he demonstrated a warm, confident and energetic coaching style. His challenge and stretch enabled me in a short space of time to generate new insights and energising solutions to some real and important issues.
I have no hesitation in recommending Dan as a coach.”
“Dan is an excellent listener, very considered and acted as an invaluable sounding board. Dan asked thought-provoking questions that I was able to reflect upon and take empowering career steps.”
“Dan was an absolute pleasure to have speak at The 2018 Business Leadership Summit at SOAS – University of London. He provided us with key insightful concepts, evoking mental shifts into becoming more consciously aware leaders, inspiring us to strive for transformational improvement and growth. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to reach their full potential and live their best life.”
“I had no hesitation in working with Dan and achieved some great results from his coaching. I came away with far better self-awareness and much improved self-esteem and confidence. And I got the full-time job I wanted.
Coaching with Dan really made me think differently and had just the right balance of input and direction. I would definitely recommend coaching with Dan – I could see how it would particularly benefit anyone who’s stuck in a rut.”
“I had the great pleasure of meeting Dan at a networking event; and then coaching with him around my Karate performance at international competitions.
I also heard him speak at an event, and I was very impressed about the knowledge he has on the human mind and brain.
Regarding coaching, his strategies and techniques make you view your life and the world from a different, more positive and constructive angle, changing patterns of thinking. He gets you to a point of confidence in your abilities. And that is what one needs to succeed. “
“Since I started working with Dan, my effectiveness and impact at work have undergone a transformation in managing my team. I’ve learned how to empower my direct reports by encouraging them to take on greater responsibility.”
“The whole experience has been transformational. Highly recommended.”
“Dan managed to combine a genuine personal touch with a professional, analytical approach. I very soon found myself building a vision for my future self. I recommend Dan to anyone who wants to improve the clarity of their own thinking and take their game to the next level.”
“Just what I needed to get clear, rediscover my mojo and put together the assets I needed.”
“Working with Dan, I quickly got a high-level view of my business, noticed what was working – and what needed attention. In our one-to-one sessions, Dan helped me update my business goals, set priorities and commit to making the changes.”
“Coaching with Dan helped me to identify the priority elements. I left feeling very much more focused, motivated and energised. I definitely recommend Dan’s coaching to anyone looking to get out of their own way and into action!”
“Your questioning helped to reinforce thoughts I’d previously had but not pursued, helping me make connections I had not previously identified. All in all, it has given me much needed clarity on my purpose.”
“I was pleased with my performance at work, but needed something different to help me step-up a gear. Working with Dan got me thinking in new directions and helped me find a whole new motivation for work. I’m now a partner at my firm and feel sure I got there quicker with Dan’s help.”
“What an eye-opener! Loved the call. Loved the outcome. A moment of real clarity.”
“I found Dan at a time when my confidence had taken a knock and I needed some clarity on what felt like a murky, uncertain future. I had a lot of ideas about different pathways I could take, but couldn’t see my own way through the fog because of my own fears and destructive beliefs.
Dan provided a professional coaching experience for me that was as impressive as much as it was genuinely helpful. He helped me pick myself apart and I suppose put myself back together, in a very short timeframe. We covered a lot and by the end I had a much better sense of the direction I needed to go and I felt relief, hope even.
It is with no hesitation that I would recommend Dan, and I absolutely 100% hope to work with him again in the future.”
“Dan is an excellent listener and quickly grasped what my worries and concerns about my business were. His coaching and advice enhanced my business strategy and is already paying off, with an increase in sales and commissions, including one from a major stately home.”
“I had no hesitation in coaching with Dan. It was an easy decision and a great investment.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed and benefited from my period of coaching with Dan. His motivational, upbeat style and encouraging approach made setting out on my own as a consultant a breeze!
Dan is extremely tailored in his approach, reacting to every directional pivot without judgement but with empathy, understanding and positive energy. I would highly recommended Dan’s involvement to anyone experiencing a pivotal moment in their career.”
“After just one session with Dan, I was able to pull-together the strands of an idea I had and develop it into a sound offering. That session gave me the platform for my next project.”
“Dan helped me to get to grips with a setback in my business that threatened to derail things. I left that session with a whole new perspective, a plan and the will to make it happen.”
“Dan has facilitated two workshops for local business groups on our behalf, which were practical, engaging and resulted in participants taking the learning and using it their own businesses.
Thanks very much”
“I was Dan’s trainer and ICF Mentor when he trained as a professional coach learning the RCS brain-based coaching methodology with NeuroLeadership Institute.
He is a keen, focused learner and importantly has put everything into practice. Dan is persistent with positive progress and being flexible with his approach and his business. A natural leader, he also continues to support his peers that he met during the training.
I highly recommend Dan as a coach as he is extremely reliable, professional and has integrity: he really cares about helping his clients to achieve new insights and move forward – to get results.”
“I started working with Dan as I felt I was stuck in my career and wasn’t sure of my next steps to get me to where I wanted to be. I enjoyed the relaxed nature of the calls and the fact that the coaching provided was completely focused on my needs: it definitely wasn’t a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
Dan challenges and pushes – you need to be prepared to work hard and come with an open mind and a desire to put in effort but the outcomes he produces by working together are definitely worth the time you both put in. I have created a shift change in my approach that I couldn’t have achieved on my own and that’s completely thanks to Dan’s expertise, commitment and personal interest in helping you be the best you can be.
I now feel much more confident in what I want and need from my career and as a result am now working in a way that better reflects my values as a person and in a role that suits my skills and expertise. I may have got there eventually but the coaching sessions with Dan have enabled me to do it in way that I’ve controlled and ten times faster.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Dan and I would recommend him to any women looking to progress or ‘get unstuck’ from behaviours that may be holding them back from being the brilliant professionals they know they can be.”
