One of the reasons I decided to get into business coaching and training was my desire to be able to help people in business get a better result. I know how hard business owners work, and what the effects of long hours and stress can do to relationships and family life; I have been there.
My passion is, therefore, to help you – if that sounds patronising, then I apologise; it is not intentional. My dad died on the day after his eightieth birthday in 2010. I loved him and he loved me, but I didn’t really know him. He spent all his time and effort working in the business. When he wasn’t working, he was thinking about it, worrying about it, or doing the accounts. He was and remains my hero.
Our family business ended in 1989 when Dad retired. In my first book, Your Life Rules OK, I went into more detail about this. In the winter of 1978, Dad realised that whilst the business would sustain him and Mom, it would not be there for me, so I would have to go and build my career somewhere else – bit of a shock to a fifteen-year-old . . .
That is why I do what I do, where the books and materials come from, and the reason I am so passionate. I can help you build your business and improve the quality of life for you and those around you. And, after all, that is why we are here.
My career has been varied. I started out as an engineer with Royal Ordnance and have had the privilege of working with and for great people in a variety of sectors. Looking back, I have been directly involved with businesses as diverse as packaging, transport, clothing, aviation services, recruitment, logistics, wiring harnesses, document management, franchising, business coaching and training.
It is with this knowledge, experience, and passion for your results that we created Results Rules OK Ltd and wrote the books and materials that are available on our web site.

This photo was taken in 1910 and shows David's Great Grandfather (middle) and Grandfather (on the right) in the Holland family business based out of Alum Rock in Birmingham, UK.
The Business was built around the family and when in 1978, David was told that because of the new Hypermarket opening up the business would have to be closed down - not only did his inheritance disappear, but he had to build himself a career from scratch.
Having true entrepreneurial spirit, despite having to sleep rough and eat at a few Charity shelters in the East End of London in the process, David became successful Operations Manager, General Manger and International CEO. He gained both a DMS and an MBA with distinction and together with his wife Lynn built businesses in the Transport, Logistics and Recruitment sector.
In 2002, David and Lynn decided that it was time for a change, to start building a business that was in line with their values - and would enable them to support other likeminded Business Owners and the Entrepreneurially minded to achieve success, both personally and professionally.
So what is our WHY...?
Simple, it is to enable everyone to enjoy learning, achieving, doing and being more; and to make sure that your business doesn't get wiped out by the 'Big Guys' with all the financial stress and heartache that goes with it. It is to fight with you as hard for your business as you do, and by introducing the best techniques and strategies available, help it grow and flourish profitably...
