Kind Words From Others

“Damian really helped me develop my thinking to set clear goals and a plan that took my karate to a new level. His knowledge and experience really helped me to develop techniques that improved my ability to operate at my best in pressure situations.   The added bonus is I can apply what I’ve learned in sport to other areas of my life. I’d recommend Damian to anyone wanting to step up and take his or her performance to the next level.”

Dean Brown, Lead Instructor – Shotokan Karate Club, London

“Damian has an evangelical streak that infects you with enthusiasm which simply makes you want to improve and do better. He has been a professional coach to me for over 4 years in one form or another and has been instrumental in gently guiding, through tips and tactics, many critical decisions that have helped me progress within Government. Damian has also helped me bridge that all important gap between family and the workplace, me to really understand what I want to achieve and why. I can’t recommend Damian enough if you want to step up your own performance.”

Ben A – Head of Futures and Strategy, Office of the Chief Scientific Advisor for National Security, UK Government

“Damian’s enthusiasm for goal-setting inspired 160 GCSE students to have a go themselves.  His stories of moving from floor cleaner to security supremo held their attention while also providing invaluable tips and practical advice.  He had such a positive response that we’re inviting him back for a follow-up.”

Sam Pullan, Assistant Head, Highgate School

“I have known Damian for many years. As a person he embodies a set of values that most others might aim for but rarely reach – me included. This core set of beliefs and behaviours is the foundation for Effective Challenge. His own development story is inspirational and this is much more than a just a marketing statement. I know many, many people who have refocused their lives based on Damian’s example and with his support. Good help in this discipline is hard to find – Damian is the best I have come across by far.”

Steve Huxter, COO ByBox

“Damian delivered a “Developing Your Resilience” talk at London South Bank University for our graduates and was a thoroughly engaging speaker. His presentation slides were clear, thought-provoking and he offered useful strategies for people to develop resilience in any given situation. I received extremely positive feedback from attendees and would recommend Damian to any organisation as a high-quality speaker.”

Rishi Chopra, Senior Alumni Relations Officer, London South Bank University

“It was an absolutely brilliant session and it’s a credit to Damian that by 4.30pm on a sunny Sunday afternoon, everyone was still energised and engaged in the wrap-up, all looking at what we would be taking away and what our immediate actions would be. We’ve all learnt a huge amount that applies in everyday life as well as for RAAM and we’ve certainly come out a much more cohesive and focused team. Roll on RAAM!”

Penny Barker, Race Across America competitor
