The one constant is change and the law of the universe says we are going to get challenges on a regular basis. The only difference that makes a difference in dealing with this is us and our response.
David inspires with his story of how he overcame the challenge of a seriously abusive childhood to become a hugely successful adult.
He shares the strategies he has learned to become one of the best practitioners in history in his chosen field of excellence, memory, an international media personality and #1 best-selling author.
David performs two jaw dropping demonstrations of his memory skills.
Highly motivated performers such as sales professionals and middle to senior managers respond very well to David’s style and message.
Presentation style – challenging and fun
David’s presentation style is direct (he is an ex-firefighter from Yorkshire). He unsettles the audience making them think deeply about where they are in work and life.
His infectious sense of humour is ever present in all his talks. He lives by the mantra ‘when we laugh, we learn’.
David’s speeches are shocking, entertaining and inspirational. They are also unforgettable.

He will do exactly that AND memorise company and industry information and use that too. Always a winner with the delegates.

“I am really impressed. David Thomas has worked wonders with Martin.”
Lord Digby Jones
A great presenter grabs the audience’s attention quickly and keeps it, gets their message across in an easily digestible and memorable way, uses technology effectively and sparingly and finishes on time.
But be honest, how often have you actually seen this happen?
This is because fantastic presenters are made not born. And coaching is the only way to achieve the above optimum results.
When working with David, all delegates are on their feet within minutes. This establishes a baseline and he then coaches them through a process. This is the very best way to improve.
And the reason David only does presentation skills coaching.
He also covers the following key areas:
David coached Martin Thatcher, CEO of Thatcher’s Cider, for a series a speeches he gave at The House of Lords.
David does in-house masterclass coaching, open courses at The Dorchester and works 1-2-1.
“David Thomas has earned his place in history for his superior mind.”

David’s childhood was one of terrible abuse at the hands of his alcoholic mother and aged physically abusive stepfather. At 16, he attempted suicide twice, got in trouble with the police, was kicked out of school and received a criminal conviction.
He left home, turned his life around and joined the Fire Service. He was an operational fire-fighter for 11 years. During that time, he bought a book on memory to help him pass his exams. 8 months later he entered his first World Memory Championships and went on to develop one of the most powerful memories in history.
