I worked with David through a particularly challenging period. If it weren't for his reflections and re-framing of my experience into something constructive, I would have easily felt like I was making little progress and reduced my efforts. But being held accountable has enabled me to remain committed to making substantial progress. I can now reflect that I have much improved health and a more secure home situation. I am also closer to running my own business than ever - through the variety of people I've met and events I've attended as a result of working with David. Thank you for your support, David.

Positive Change Forever

Having the opportunity to become involved with Fourthguides has allowed me to challenge my ideas about what it means to be a leader in today’s society and really explore what building a regenerative society might entail. I’ve come into contact with some truly inspirational people who have broadened my networks and introduced me to new and different ways of thinking – I’m very much looking forward to continuing my involvement and seeing what we can achieve together!

I have lost count of the number of ‘initiatives’ ‘groups’ ‘sessions’ ‘seminars’ etc that have purported to be for my benefit but have actually been a means to ram a concept down my neck or sell me something. This approach allows us the space to choose, contribute and in some cases alter the direction of travel.

David's guidance has enabled me to change my life for the better. He has a profound ability to make sense of life. Throughout my 39 years I have never had a sense of direction or self-worth and within a matter of months he has supported me to realise the scale of my potential and purpose and I feel unstoppable no matter what challenges life throws at me.

David's tailored support has been validating of the path I am on, while also helping me to identify the missing pieces of the picture I am creating, that I couldn’t see myself.

With his guidance I have been able to connect with my strengths, some of which I had long forgotten or taken for granted without appreciating or accessing their benefits. Stepped into my personal power, enabling me to create a bigger vision than I had thought possible. I've identify my vulnerabilities and find ways to work with them so they are not self-sabotaging. I've created my personal mission, vision and purpose for my work that has helped me to identify new ways of working that I had not considered before. I'm now prepared to stand by my commitments to myself without fear by connecting with my inner warrior.

David is a god send. He helped me to sort through the chaos of projects I was working on and set up my business to be more effective. Using some great cutting edge technologies and tried and tested methods of effectiveness, I felt well taken care of and have seen big positive progress and reduction of stress from Dave's help.

His pragmatic approach and advice on project management really helped me to get thing done. I would recommend anyone looking to get organized and effective with your lifestyle and business, do some work with Dave.

David was recommended to me by a friend who had found his approach inspirational and helpful in turning her business around. I had been speaking to her about wanting to work with someone who could mentor me whilst respecting my need to honour what I describe as a more "feminine" approach to my work.

As a creative I desperately needed guidance in structure yet also needed to feel understood by the person guiding me. David's style is an integration of structure and creativity. I found the practices David supported me in developing greatly enhanced my time management and therefore productivity, without cramping my flowing style. Having an accountability practice really helps me to keep on track when shiny glittery things attempt to distract me, yet David's kindness in responses also prevents any overwhelm I might feel by getting overly task orientated. And I love using the "capture" techniques to optimise on inspirations, catching them as they arise instead of letting them float off into the ethers. I could write a chapter on how effective and awesome David's methods are, but you will only discover this as a fact by having the experience yourself. I will say though that for me, balance is the key, and David is a master of balance.

David offers very authentic and down to earth guidance. He's helped me overcome many sticking points and revealed blind spots in a way that was both fourthright (?) and understanding. Great at listening to your needs and imparting knowledge that best suites your own personal journey, in all areas of life.

Reclaim Your Inner Throne

What David’s offering is so needed. It’s the kind of thing that everybody needs to realize they need. Surrender and flow simply ain’t cutting it if we want to build a proper business.

I’m super grateful for his contributions to my business, and for what he’s contributed to our overall operation. It’s not always been easy, but David persisted in his efforts.

He can really help you, folks. For the idealistic flowsters out there who think that everything will just automagically work out if you “follow your bliss”, David is your guy. Because you’re dreaming, folks, and you’re headed for disappointment.

David is a rare jem! He brings such a down to earth approach to what can seem a daunting tangled mess. He guides gently and steadily to the places I try to hide from myself, and then probes fearlessly until I crack. Still then he’s there to hold and encourage until the illumination inherent in my blind spots come into view.

A course of sessions with David is not an easy ride, but a very fruitful one.

Practically, he has a wealth of knowledge and experience in systems and organisational tools that have helped me to focus on the real work I do, knowing that everything is running smoothly in the background.

I absolutely recommend David and the Purpose in Action programme to any soulpreneur seeking support. I’ve been working with David since late last year and the changes have been stellar. After 5 years of being self-employed I finally feel that I have a business. I have a team, I have support, I have accountability and I have direction. Making the investment in my business – both financially and energetically – has opened up new possibilities and horizons. Thank you David!

Creative Engagement

David’s passion, honesty and organisational skills to drive projects forward have been a pleasure to be part of and witness.

David’s management skills during the turbulent time of our office move were exceptional and made the process run smoothly.

Over the last 5 years I have witnessed David develop his strong project management skills. His methodical mind combined with his creative approach to engage different audiences is extremely valuable to any organisation.
