I've not known David long, just a matter of months but in the short time i have he's managed to completely energise my attitude to our work and current situation. The help he provides is invaluable for anyone involved in business and especially those caught up in the day to day of business activity.
I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone, and his record speaks for itself. Thank you David for the help you've given so far, and i intend this working relationship to continue indefinitely. Matt Williams UK
I first came across David in 2007 and have benefited greatly from his business knowledge and coaching expertise. I've seen the impact he creates with others through his group coaching and thoroughly recommend his services.
Sanjay Shah UK
I met David last year, in Bulgaria but it seems like I know him forever. Is a nice person with a very solid background in business coaching. He enjoy learning others people to be better in their domains; he helps them to have a more accurate vision about their business. With David support they understand and correct their mistakes. David is a great friend and anytime I need his advice or help he is more than willing to find the perfect solution for my problem. I know I can count on David and his clients, too. Constantin Anton Bulgaria
I have worked with David for the last five years, he does what it says on the tin....gets results, which to me means creating more profit through increasing my business effectiveness and directing my effort and energy to gain optimum returns. Oh and he is great fun to be around, a positive force in a non-tree hugging kind of way. Mike Turbitt UK
David is the most engaging speaker I have ever encountered; he has a fantastic ability to impart tools and concepts that enable massive organizational improvements in a way that is easily understood and more importantly implementable to audiences worldwide.
His humble style belies his global experience and expertise which is vast; to capture just what I mean I recommend that you read David's books; they are way beyond EMyth and bring Harvard to the Owner Managed Business/SME with dramatic effects.
John Atkinson UK
David was a pleasure to work with. He was always attentive and answered questions quickly. His final delivery to the client was perfect and they loved his speech. I would highly recommend David to anyone considering hiring him. We will work again soon.
Lucinda Swan UK
Gary Taylor UK
I have had the pleasure of knowing David for over 5 years. I originally met David at a breakfast meeting we both attended and during that time found him to be a truly inspirational character. His CV speaks for itself which has taken David to many European Countries and further afield. I have been privileged to attend a number of David's presentations and would encourage anyone to speak with him if they are seeking increased revenue and sales within their business.
Matt Southall UK
We hired David as a Business Coach to help us drive the organisation to the next level. His personable approach, depth of knowledge, and the way in which he simplified and conveyed difficult business principles sets him apart amongst his peers.
His approach is uncomplicated, easy to grasp, most importantly very straightforward to implement and yields excellent results. I'd recommend David to anyone looking to grow their business.
James Ball UK
Dutch Holland has an uncanny capability to introduce people to themselves, and their possibilities. Working with Dutch has been an enlightening, empowering, inspiring endeavour. His quick wit, combined with his sincerity and wealth of knowledge make Dutch one of the most effective trainers and personal effectiveness gurus on the planet (and beyond the planet, for all intents & purposes). Chris Steely USA
I have known David for many years. He worked with the team at Chamberlains for some time. His input was outstanding and has had a positive and long lasting effect on the performance of our organisation. Stuart Sherman UK
David is no doubt the best Business Coach I've ever come across. The knowledge Objectivity has gained as a result of his coaching is allowing us to resume our growth - which stagnated for a considerable amount of time. I can wholeheartedly recommend David's services!
Rob Helle Poland
Dave and I set out on an ambitious 3-year plan to grow The Audio Suite and he insisted that we set incredible, yet measureable, goals for what was at that time, simply a one-man-studio with big ideas. What was even more of a challenge for him was that we were - by any definition - a niche business, in a niche industry: an audio post-production facility located in Birmingham, UK.
So I wrote down 3 incredible things I wanted to achieve within those 3 years: to grow from 1 mixing studio to 3; to have a major Hollywood credit from those studios; and to be recognized by our peers. In the end, we missed the completion of all 3 of those targets by just 21 days... During that time we moved to new, bespoke premises; I received a credit on the Julie Christie, John Hurt and Shia Labeouf movie 'New York I Love You' and won Gold at the New York Film Festival for the film 'Steamy Windows', which was Sound Designed and mixed by me, at the new Audio Suite studio complex.
We also, along the way, had the most fun you can have in business with your clothes on. I unreservedly commend, and recommend, David Holland's personal and business development skills.
Neil Hillman UK
I hired David as my business coach in August 2005 when I wanted help to take my business to the next level.
David was able to use the knowledge he had accumulated in working in other businesses (whilst respecting confidentiality of course) to help me in mine. David was a keen advocate of process-based business and helped me to see how ATEC could be systemised (even though most of what we do is bespoke.) Working with David gave me a major confidence boost in my own abilities as a CEO and this has played a huge part on our success.
We now have an award winning business with first class structure and processes and that has allowed me to take a non-operational role. I don't think we would have been able to achieve this without David's input. I would have no hesitation in recommending David's services to other SMEs.
Simon Adcock UK
I know I'm a pain in the butt. And I have struggled so much with direction and focus. Through it all you have been so patient and understanding. Through all those ups and downs, you have been an anchor. And now I have something that gets me excited. Not because of the income potential. What excited me is the fun and difference I can have. Thank you for being a great coach and being ever persistent in pushing just enough for me to continually move forward. Josh McGinnis USA
Having met David at a local networking event, I was certainly intrigued...
We met for a chat and a coffee and that was the turning point. Guiding me with his own client specific methods, he has let free a more self-confident, competent entrepreneur. I look forward to continuing to work with David, having him there to re-ignite the energy on my less positive days and to push me to new heights and accomplishments in the times ahead. To sum it up, David is AWESOME! I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Mandy Patrick Luxembourg
David is a continuous inspiration to me. He is a problem solver and a thought provoker! Its a pleasure to work with David and he does not only believe in you, but hands you all the tools so you can start believing in yourself and succeed. The passion of his work is contagious. So is his humour
Janice Allgrove Luxembourg
After visiting some of David's great events we started working with each other.
David is an excellent coach for the entrepreneur. He actively listens, keeps you focused on your goals and offers resources to move forwards. Working with David he taught us how to set up our marketing plan, how to do a good presentation and how to focus on every possibility passing by.
Besides helping us with our business, David became a really good friend.
If you do want your business to extend and grow, David is the guy! Frits Steketee - Netherlands
Having worked with David, he was able to show me the potential I have and how to best use that in both my business and personal life. David's approach is both relaxing and challenging and helped me to focus on my goals. I would recommend David to anyone looking to find meaning to their life.
John Moore UK
Having had the pleasure of being at 2 of David's presentations I then decided I wanted to hear and learn more. A fabulous teleconf earlier today has given me structure and a clear view as to what I can achieve and when I can achieve it by. David is so very personable, and passionate about what he does, that it would be impossible to not be inspired THE results guy... Thank you David. Emma Smith UK
We have always had a passion for our Martial Arts business, and thought that the time was right to reach out and take some help regarding growing the numbers within our academy. In the last 16 months, working with Dave as our Coach, we have grown the business by 45.2% ; we have more clarity about the numbers, ratios and strategies that are enabling us to be successful, and we are excited about developing our business further in the future. Always on hand with ideas, tactics and of course accountability to achieve agreed objectives, Dave and his team are great people to be around and do business with - highly recommended...
Stuart Harris UK
I have met and worked with a number of Business Coaches over the last 30-odd years, 1 or 2 of whom have been very good. David is right up there with the best and he hits the spot with his direct, down to earth and genuine style. I have also seen the benefit he has had/is having on local businesses. If you want to be fired with enthusiasm for your business and to grow it, David is your go to man.
Andy Homer Luxembourg
Dave (Dutch) Holland's energy coupled with his tell-it-like-it-is style is a charismatic combination. I first met him when I received my Business Coaching Certification. 24 months later I found myself working alongside of him training international candidates seeking coaching certification.
As a businessman, he is a true entrepreneur. As a business educator, Dutch has the uncanny ability to read situations, synthesize all mitigating factors and ask the right questions that will enable growth for both from the business and from the business owner.
But beyond these soft characteristics, what makes Dutch stand out are his stats. While some business coaches have built dozens of businesses, Dutch has literally built or helped build, and/or improved thousands of companies. He achieves results, and I highly recommend him as a business coach or business advisor.
Juliette Donoghue USA
I have used David for just over 12 months and extremely impressed with the results.
To start with I wasn't quite sure how it would work and if it would be a success but having just finished 2013, I can confirm that things are looking very positive. The mortgage market has increased over the last 6 months so some of the increase is from market conditions but I can definitely say that David's input and ideas have had an impact and I will be working with him throughout 2014. Stuart Mosley UK
David started working with our group of companies at the end of 2012 in order to help us construct and implement a coherent business plan. He works with us rather than for us and together we have been able to increase our business footprint by over 50%. I am delighted to say our group revenues have grown to match! David saw our potential and broke down into manageable steps the path we are now following. I can safely say that without David we would not be considering opening our 3rd international office in the coming months - we would not have known how. We are looking forward to the next 12 months and reaching our goals and I am sure our collaboration will not stop there.

Courtney Charlton Luxembourg
David is a fantastic business coach. He is very popular among the Roadio community of business owners for his illuminating insights on how to tackle day-to-day matters as well as more strategic questions. One of David's great gifts is being able to break complex business issues down into practical, actionable solutions delivered with clarity (and good humour!). He is both an excellent writer and presenter too. I recommend David highly.
Mawuli Ladzekpo UK
I have worked with David in two separate organizations. Yes that's right, he is so good I hired him twice. As I have indicated, David is personable, expert and has high integrity. More than that, David is a leading coach, one who is a pleasure to work with, even when the going is hard. Give David's coaching a go, I promise it will be worth it.
John Nieuwenburg Canada
In the short time working with David, my business has transformed from a "hobby" which pays my daily bills (just) to an exciting adventure with huge ambitions. With his extensive knowledge and humorous ways, he knows how to get results; Very much looking forward. Thanks Dave.
Neil Brown Germany
We have hired Dave to be a guest speaker at our events on many occasions as the information he provides is not only invaluable to our clients but motivating and inspiring. We love working with him and his lovely wife.
Louisa Turchet UK
Dave has given our management team fabulous support over the last 18 months or so as we've worked together to successfully transition The Audio Suite from a large, commercial work-for-hire facility, to a bespoke Sound Design Practice. Dave's ability to create focus and understanding, allied to his huge commercial experience and knowledge, makes him our 'secret weapon' as we go in to battle to win the hearts and minds of both our existing and prospective clients.
Neil Hillman UK
David and his team have been working alongside Abraxas for around 12 months now, we have had great fun working with them and they have shown Abraxas a different side to how we can run our business and provide an excellent service to all our clients. I have no problem in recommending David and his team, Lynn and Jon. They're a great bunch of people to work with and you really do get Results...... we have.
Tom Wraight UK
David has been working with myself & SJN Partnership now for around 18 months and results are flowing. To get my mind focused on the right things, and the company going in to the right direction David demonstrated the patience of a saint! But good education and advice finally has started to filter through. The biggest gain to date was a public tender worth over £250,000 which David assisted in writing. Thinking what the procurement people want to read rather than writing what I want to say has been a hard and valuable lesson.
I raise a toast of good French wine and say 'Merci David'.
Stuart Nottingham UK
Each week on a Wednesday for the past six months, the second the clock ticks over to 2pm, my phone rings and I am greeted by an upbeat, friendly "Mia, how's it going?" What follows is 30 minutes to and hour of some of the most personable, easy to follow business coaching which, most importantly, helps me achieve week on week, as well as keeping me sane! I attended my first quarterly planning day with David earlier this month and it was fantastic to get together with so many of his clients, sharing ideas, motivating each other and of course, listening to David speak with such passion about what he does. David and his wife Lynn are not only experts in making sure you are equipped with the tools you need to continually improve, they are two of the most approachable people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, and I look forward to a long working relationship with the pair of them.
Mia Gahan UK
David is an authentic speaker.
He has a really interesting past and tells his story brilliantly. David has a great ability to engage with people on all levels and it's just totally likeable in every aspect!
He really helped me to understand why I do what I do in a way that was fresh for me.
I'm really looking forward to doing something with you David, whatever that may be, because I'm sold on you, and that's the right place to start.
I would recommend David for speaking events, especially related to motivation, overcoming adversity and understanding your own brand and story.
Michelle Mills Porter UK
David's input to both myself and the CEO of Crack On Foundation has been invaluable this last 12 months. The results speak for themselves and has meant we have grown from just two retail outlets to six at present with two more to follow by mid February 2013.
David's coaching style is fantastic and he helps us focus on key parts of the business to give us the best possible chance to achieve the results we require. One of the key contributing factors are the 90 Day Planning Workshops that David runs. We always come away having achieved what we set out to do in the previous session and have a plan in place for the next 90 days. Alongside this our monthly meeting hold us accountable.
I would highly recommend David and would like to thank him publicly for all the assistance he has given to Crack On Foundation so far. Gary Murray UK
I would like to thank both Lynne and David for yet another superb workshop. If you are looking for inspiration, motivation, brilliant ideas, a whole lot of fun and great people then look no further than Results Rules.
Kevin Gallagher UK
I attended one of David's Creative Planning Days, along with other entrepreneurs from across the UK and beyond.
He just held the day completely - lots of expert advice, thinking, and easy to grasp ideas that will really help me to position my business - who I am and where I want to be!
Business planning can be approached in quite a linear and logistical way with many business advisers - but David injects lots of energy, enthusiasm and credibility. He's not afraid to digress and go off plan - but just manages to bring it all together in a coherent and a authentic way.
I'd recommend one of his days to anyone! He's not based in the UK so you just need to check out when he's around!
Carole Renshaw UK
I've attended a quarterly Business Planning Day with David. I want to say how inspiring and refreshing the day has been. His ideas to motivate and target yourself and your business are simple, fun and illustrated well in an easy to understand way. Business is not rocket science and David helps you see the wood as well as the trees!
Marc Ford UK
David keeps me focused on what's really important in my business. He believes in me and wants me to do well. He is knowledgeable and always has an answer; a good answer. He is very personable and optimistic. He is very generous in sharing what he's learnt and what he's developed. He also has great stories to share that get a point over. He's solid and reliable and never misses a session and is always bang on time. Most importantly, we are starting to see results. 2013 is going to be a good year.
Mark Dyble UK
David's WWW course was a trigger for some huge shifts! For once I was forced to work on some fundamental business foundations that I knew needed to be developed, but had never got around to it, This course made me address those areas and it has instigated real change in the way that I present my offering.
It made all of us face some real beliefs and ethics behind our businesses using a simply structure, the Why the What and the WOW!
It all came together at the right time, as I was addressing these questions whilst redesigning logos and web sites for my business, but David's course was more effective than any other training on the subject.
I think I was most impressed with the way that David makes the changes happen, you don't just talk about it and go home; you actually implement what you have committed to.
David's style is honest, powerful and yet painless!
I'm looking forward to showing the proof of the changes. Thanks David!
Michelle Mills Porter UK
I have been working with David over the last month and have received excellent results. He helps me to focus my thoughts and works with me to help move the business forward.
I saw David speak for the first time last week and really enjoyed his fun and relaxed style. Informative but at the same time easy to listen to; looking forward to your workshop later in the month. Thanks David.
Anna Goodwin UK
David is a fantastic person, who has the ability to re-focus people on what is really important to them.

Emanuel Begat Luxembourg

Camelia Cracium Romania

To work with David is very easy and quick. He has an exceedingly rich business experience and shares it in a way that is accessible for everybody. I have witnessed the way he inspires people and makes them feel confident. This quality of his combined with his rich experience gives impressive results.
Veselin Dimitrov Bulgaria
I had the pleasure of attending a 'Results Rules OK' workshop during Sep 2011. I found David's personable delivery both unique, fun and inspiring. I have since attended another 'Bite Size Sales Workshop' and also a 2 day 'Foundation Master class Coaching Programme'. He is very knowledgeable within the Business Sector and is very well placed to work with large corporate companies and also individuals in order to achieve high results! I fully recommend David and his dynamic company, I have learned and achieved so much already and I have only just started working with this company. Jackie Cummins UK
David is an excellent provider of training for individuals SME's and Corporates. He manages to make the courses fun and engaging and as a result they are a lot more thought provoking. He is very passionate about developing a relationship with everyone he trains and adding value to their business and accommodating the needs of the customer. With this in mind I have no hesitation in recommending David as an excellent Coach and Trainer.
Dave Dougan UK
David is great at getting to the heart of things. Whether it be setting business targets or personal goals, he has a wonderful way of helping you look at things from different angles - and finding a way forward to achieve exactly what you want. All I can say is "be careful what you wish for" - with David's help you just might get there quicker than you think... or you just might realise you want to get somewhere completely different than you first thought! Either way, you should check out his books and drop him a line...you definitely won't be disappointed.
Mike Gates UK

Gwyneth Allsopp UK
David is one of those amazingly larger than life personalities who inspires, motivates and enables you to access vital sales skills and business strategy. His workshops as well as business coaching are based upon years of experience and proven results. I would defy anyone who meets David either personally, through coaching or training, to leave without feeling encouraged, energised and confident about what they too can achieve.
I heartily recommend him and "challenge" you to experience what David can do for you and your business. You won't be disappointed!! Jeremy Walker UK
