Recent testimonials:

"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; in particular, helping me navigate my way through the Certificate in Management Consulting Essentials, an Institute of Business Consulting (IBC) qualification. His vast experience as a management consultant and coach has been evident throughout, ensuring that I have gone through the programme as painlessly as possible. I was able to be rapidly brought up to a competent level, reinforcing my previous knowledge and expanding my horizons where necessary. David communicates easily and well, establishing excellent rapport very quickly to ensure maximum value from contact sessions. He has also introduced me to a new network by inviting me to IBC events. I can recommend David's company, Riggours, very highly for individuals requiring career coaching, mentoring, or to assist anyone considering a move into consultancy. I would be very happy to furnish further information if required by potential clients." Tony Downes director plain-talk ex HR director VOSA July09

"David Rigby is supporting me through completion of my Certificate in Management Consulting Essentials, an Institute of Business Consulting (IBC) qualification His professional insight and vast breadth of experience in this field has added much value to this exercise. I have also benefitted from David’s coaching support which has challenged me to reflect and re-asses my priorities in aiming to achieve my business potential. As an individual David has the unique ability to easily develop a rapport with individuals he has just met. I have had such a positive experience that I would not hesitate to recommend David Rigby and his company Riggours to those pursuing the CMC qualification, coaching and mentoring and business development skills. David and I are still working together" Naseema Khan NK Consulting NHS Programme Director.

“As a professional SME business advisor I needed help in broadening my skill-set to include aspects of coaching and mentoring. David Rigby helped me to really understand their differences and how to apply the techniques to enable my clients to successfully commit themselves to the changes they needed to undertake to become more successful or indeed to survive in business.” David Munn catering and hospitality business advisor and coach – country inn manager.
“David has been my business coach for two years, during this time he has helped me quadruple my income and turn fully professional. David uses formal life coaching techniques to ensure we have actions and goals from our meetings so it is easy to follow up. However he ensures that the our coaching sessions are informal and encourages me to find and implement my own solutions. I know I can always ask David for help, and he uses his network to find answers to questions he cannot personally answer” Robbie Verrecchia – Bath School of Samba

 What the coaching clients said:

David’s has helped SME MD’s, senior executives, self-employed, individuals setting up businesses, coaches and consultants, the clergy, the prison service, network marketers and senior managers manage teams. In additional to coaching individual clients he is a business mentor for South Somerset Council, BRAVE and Princes Trust. David’s clients say:

"I have known and worked for and with David for several years. Currently he is mentoring me and helping me develop my business through a series of one to one life coaching sessions. These I am finding extremely useful at this stage in my life and career. David has a knack of getting straight to the issues and offers useful and practical solutions. I would highly recommend him as a Life Coach" Andrew Herbert, Goodrich Management

“Just to let you know that one year after the life coaching sessions I have managed successfully to change the culture in the prison I work in. Our Prison got 90% when the National audit team visited in May. Last year it was 67% before I started. I think the most important thing in bringing about change was how to make staff valued and appreciated” name on request.

“Coaching helped me in various ways. It helped me as a coach/mentor myself, as I noticed the skills that David has and I have applied them to my own role. From a personal point of view, coaching helped me to focus on myself for once (I tend to work hard at helping others) and gave me an opportunity to reflect, and talk through issues which I have kept to myself. David was an interested listener. There was a high element of empathy. David and I set realistic targets, and being accountable for these helped me to achieve them. It also helped improve my self-image.” Dr Patricia Evans

“The first thing that David did that was excellent was zero in on establishing an agenda that was limited enough to work on in the context of the sessions, but would move me forward. Since everything in my life right now hinges on generating sales, he focused on one area where an emotional block appeared to be holding me back. He did this through a questioning process that was patient but fairly direct and wasted no time in getting to the heart of the matter. We then built a plan of action appropriate to the time we were working with.” Jonathan Mueller
