No matter how brilliant your mind or strategy, if you’re playing a solo game, you’ll always lose out to a team."

Reid Hoffman, Co-Founder & Executive Chairman, LinkedIn

Our corporate workshops are for organisations that want to create better engagement and higher performance from their teams, encourage an organisational culture of taking ownership and responsibility rather than victim-thinking, and develop and refine an organisational strategy that is inspirational, meaningful, and actionable. 


David draws on over two decades years of coaching and facilitation experience in the Australian private, public, and not-for-profit sectors to bring you intensive workshop experiences that create lasting impact. 


Each workshop is tailored to suit the needs of your organisation. 


We offer three workshop packages.

A workshop to help your team make the mind shift from victim-thinking to a culture of taking ownership and responsibility. It is common for people to see themselves as victims of external circumstances, and act as if they have no personal power or choice, blaming and complaining their way through life. 


It is not so common for people to acknowledge that they are the cause of their own life experience and to take ownership and responsibility for their problems, understanding that they are powerful creators with the ability to significantly influence future outcomes. 


This is a one day workshop for organisations who are ready to build a culture of powerful creation and bias for action, rather than a default position of passive immobility and assumed helplessness.




A workshop to support your leadership team in developing and refining an organisational strategy that is inspirational, meaningful, and actionable. When organisations create strategic plans, often the resulting document is no more than a vision statement, lacking the essential components of a true strategy. 


A strategic conversation needs to answer four questions: Where are we now? Where do we want to be? What are our big ideas for how to get there? What will we actually do?


David is a skilled strategic conversation facilitator for executive teams of large organisations. A strategic conversation with David is a two day workshop for leadership teams who understand the importance of creating the time for collaborative strategic thinking together. 


Your organisation will receive a detailed report, including our trademarked “strategy on a page”, which summarises the strategy we will create together in a form that you are able to communicate to all your stakeholders swiftly and effectively. 




A workshop for organisations that want to create better engagement and higher performance from their teams. 


Would you like to see your team members come to work with a smile on their face and clear enthusiasm for their role? Only a leader who understands the key leadership styles can create a group of committed team members who love giving their time and energy to the work they do in your organisation. 


This workshop focuses on training your leadership team in the ancient art of engaging teams around a vision and the strategy needed to make that vision a reality, as well as teaching the skills to have your team members motivated and performing at their best.
