Training & Coaching

For people looking to learn and develop

You have the option of both open and bespoke training courses, as well as one-to-one coaching, to help give you the knowledge, practical skills and confidence you need to market your business successfully.



Masterclasses are designed to help you learn more about a particular aspect of marketing, give you an opportunity to take a step back and look at your business from a fresh perspective, and equip you to apply your learning in your workplace.

In addition to the open courses, masterclasses customised to your organisation’s specific needs can also be developed. If there’s a topic you want me to cover, please let me know.

Forthcoming masterclasses are listed below.

  • “David facilitated our communications strategy away day. Everyone learned a great deal from David and significant improvements were made as a result.”

    Stephanie Mills
    Head of Communications (global infrastructure investments)

  • “Working with David has been an absolute pleasure. I thoroughly recommend any growing business to work with him. When you are growing your own business you are often working full speed in the business juggling every role and you simply don’t make the time to work on it. David’s Sharper Marketing Programme is not for the faint hearted though! It requires work and commitment to get the best results. David guided us through the process setting weekly homework, and managed to simplify what could have been a very difficult process. I have a clear plan to work on for the years ahead.“

    Laura Chapman
    Managing Director (property services)

  • “Through his well-designed and easy to follow programme, David helped me a great deal to evaluate and organise our marketing activities. His help has been invaluable to me and his common sense approach to build a marketing model from the ground up that is properly organised really impressed me. Our marketing system has been massively improved thanks to David.”

    Andrew Bruce
    Director (automotive)

  • “David has encouraged us to think of the broader picture. He obviously cares a lot about all of his students, and that makes a tremendous difference. He is a phenomenal lecturer, and his tutorials are personal and stimulating. He replies to emails quickly and effectively, and he makes time for everyone if they have questions. It is obvious that we are considered a priority to him, which is more important than anyone realises.”
