Your Coach and Mentor

I'm David.
Founder and Chair

David's Approach
⭑ Served as a director and CEO in both private and public companies in Australia and overseas.
I'm a former:
⭑ Commissioned officer with the Australian Defence Forces.
⭑ Covert operations leader in law enforcement.
And most importantly.

I've devoted the last 25 years to helping CEO and their direct reports to be the best they can be.

And for the last 20 of those years, my clients have all been by referral.

Many of my clients have been with me throughout their business careers.

Who else is on my your team?

Meet Alyssa Henderson

Executive Assistant
Alyssa is Metattude’s Executive Assistant, Administration Manager, and Coordinator. 
Yes, she wears three hats.
And she wears them well.
When the former legal secretary is not busy connecting with Metattude’s clients, she can be found providing support expertise and paying close attention to detail.

Shawn Murphy

Skill Hire, CEO
“Every time I have engaged David, the leadership behaviours of my senior leaders has improved dramatically which has had an amazing impact on the teamwork, comradery, culture and of course, financial success of our businesses.

David is an invaluable partner and trusted adviser and the most effective Executive Coach and mentor I have worked with.”
There’s a reason I’ve been
100% referral based since 2002.

I build real relationships.

There’s no fluff.  I’ll tell you what you NEED to hear not what you WANT to hear.  So you can have difficult conversations and move forward.

I use processes.

No guessing.  I use processes + frameworks.  The same ones that have been helping my clients over the last two decades.

I’m flexible.

The program and services I offer are completely customizable right down to the amount and length of meetings. 
So, do we jell enough to work together?

My Work Gudelines

You’re invested.

Your work won’t be easy.  You need to be 100% on board with improving before we start strengthening your team.

You’ve got the numbers.

You’re a business with between 50 to 200 staff.  And you’re seeking to be the recognized employer and provider in your space.

You’re open to change.

This is a no-judgment zone. 
If you’re not comfortable with me right away, don’t sweat it!

We “get” each other.

This goes beyond a CV.  We’ll know straight away when we meet (even virtually) for the first time.  If we jell, it’s time to get to working on your next big business move.
"David just said tell me where you're at. 
And very quickly steered me away from this
kind of dilemma and focused me on a much better path."

Our Clients

Maike Turnbull

Principal Policy Officer and business owner
Before I met David I was experiencing a lot of self-doubt and indecision, as well as a challenging interpersonal and leadership environment at my workplace.

I felt like I was ‘stuck’ without really knowing why (there was clearly something subconscious going on!)

Whilst working with David I had major insights into my personality, leadership style and my subconscious beliefs and patterns that were keeping me ‘stuck’. I also acquired a deep understanding of the interpersonal conflicts I was experiencing, my role in them and how I could resolve them / come to peace with them.

As a result of my work with David I am now inspired and have some helpful tools and insights to help me grow further.

I now feel confident to manage conflict and I feel clear about my path ahead.

If you want to improve yourself, then I recommend David because he has a way of unlocking your subconscious belief and helping you to make progress without evening knowing that you’re being coached! David is one of those very rare, 100% authentic, grounded humans who has done the work himself. He walks his talk and has a wisdom of the deeper meaning of life."
