Interests In my coaching hat I prefer to help make successful people more successful. You can read the blog on Swindon Coaching Team to see my approach, this is what a couple of people have said: "Here are a few words to the man who changed my life with a simple sentence: David Rigby. I have worked with David for almost 2 months on the BPR for the Western Region Municipality in Abu Dhabi! I have learned from him in these two months more than i learned through whole my professional career! But what i have learned from him and the advices he gave me on the personal level have contributed in me taking the right decision which changes my life! David told me one simple sentence" don not worry about the things you can not influence " and this is the golden rule in my life! Now i am in Sydney doing my Masters and things are very good! Thanks David...the best mentor ever" Maher Al Noukari David has been guiding me through a career change from my previous role as a Board Director in the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency into management consultancy; David communicates easily and well, establishing excellent rapport very quickly to ensure maximum value from contact sessions. I can recommend David very highly for individuals requiring career coaching, mentoring, or to assist anyone considering a move into consultancy” Tony Downes VOSA/ Johnson Controls Limited, based at BBC
