Personal Professional Development for Young People

“Both my sons have benefitted from coaching sessions with Dave. With just one or two sessions Dave was able to help give encouragement guidance and focus to such matters as further education, considering early career options, structuring CV's and interviewing techniques. It was very re-assuring to be able to arrange for an independent person like Dave to provide a structured framework within which to focus on some goals and target setting. Dave has a good rapport with young people. He is very approachable and a good listener. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Five stars from me!".

Janet Magee, Mar 15

Young people are not being taught the full range of skills that will allow them to create their own success as they move through higher education and on into a career or their own business.

I’m passionate about getting these skills into the hands of as many young people as possible. They have the drive and intelligence and deserve to have the skills available to them to define and create success for themselves.

These are the skills described in my “Own Your Career” and “Start Your Business” programs, so I haven’t described them separately here. Even if you’re 15 or 16 years old, many of these are skills you can start using years before you actually leave education so that when you do, you’re in a position to create the working life that you want.
