Building Site to Boardroom (BS2B)
Found himself on to a building site at the age of 21 with no skills and limited education after a childhood spent in care and in trouble with the law.
He was given a broom and managed to work his way up through the years, finally becoming a contracts manger running multi million pound jobs in his late thirties.
As the pressures and stresses increased with the responsibility, this impacted on him and his family. Dave suffered with depression, anxiety, outbursts of rage and was drinking heavily.
Nine years ago Dave and his family had finally had enough of his behaviour and he started to look for ways to deal with the stress and pressure that didn’t include drinking.
Throwing himself in to personal development workshops he started to discover tools of self-awareness that made his personal and professional life easier.
Dave starting sharing these tools with his workforce, this led to him writing a book called The Hairy Arsed Builders Guide to Stress Management.
Now Dave is a director of BS2B delivering the tools of self-awareness to the construction industry.
