I have been working with Dave since the start of 2022. Dave has a positive, can do attitude and is the ultimate professional. Dave goes above and beyond to support the needs of his Clients and deliver against their objectives. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dave as a Strategic commercial partner for any Food & Drink business looking to grow via sales maximisation.
For the last few months, I’ve been meeting with Dave Christie from Take On Goliath who is a remarkable business coach specialising in working with small and medium sized business and helping them achieve growth.
Dave has been an incredible support to me, helping me to gain crystal-clear clarity on my business and personal goals. His expert insights and unwavering support have empowered me to take focused actions that are driving my business forward.
My Monday morning TOG meetings are a gift to myself and they’re the most important couple of hours in my working week. They represent valuable time where I put my phone on “Do Not Disturb” and just focus on me and my business. A huge thank you to Dave for all his support and effort over the last few months and I’d highly recommend him to any “solopreneurs” or small business owners that are looking to achieve more!
I have worked with Dave on a few projects over the last few years. His engagement with my clients is wonderful as he really gets the food industry and the highs and lows of the challenger brand.
I have seen him develop skills in people they didn’t even think they had and focuses not only on the company’s well- being but the founders well being as well.
Everyone needs a Dave Christie in their life!
Dave and I linked up via the mentoring scheme on the Help to Grow SME management program. Dave made for a great sounding board and provided me with invaluable guidance throughout the course and beyond.
I have known Dave for a number of years and both personally and in business I have always found him to be a driven and highly motivated individual with a great propensity to be able to transfer that energy and direction to others. As a coach and mentor he is a great listener who then, thinks outside of the box to deliver inspirational programmes that, are tailored to the individual, the team and, the organisation.
Dave has a wealth of experience both practical and creative and working with him has been incredibly motivating and inspiring. He quickly identified where we could add value, how to increase our impact by clarifying and reintroducing our brand vision and values and worked with us to create a sales strategy to help us recover from the impact of the pandemic and Brexit. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with Dave, who’s become a great asset and a brilliant addition to the CHOC CHICK team.
I really enjoy working with Dave on opening the UK market for Marcel’s Green Soap. He certainly has a vast and valuable network in both the independent channel as well as with the multiples in the UK and he does open doors there and gets listings in place. Next to that he is a truly very hard-working, 100% committed, always available, honest guy and he certainly lives up to his promises and requests.
Dave gives a critical eye on all things regarding my grocery sales. He advises, criticises constructively, comes up with creative and practical ideas, motivates and encourages. His sports coaching background is clear to see and he has really helped me move the brand forward
Dave was introduced to me via the Federation of Snall Businesses and he has proved to be a great mentor all things marketing and business start-up. Our zoom sessions are always very productive and I always come away with a massive To-Do list. Dave is very friendly, knowledgeable and honest and nothing is too much trouble for him. I highly recommend him to any business just starting out, providing you are prepared to put the effort in.
Dave’s coaching has made it possible for us to take our natural health business out to new markets and we are fully on track to achieve our goals!
Our small team have all benefited from Dave’s input with brand development, sales and marketing, and crucially Dave has connected our brand with some amazing collaborators and routes to market.
His wide-ranging experience and tireless support have helped us through several challenges and I would recommend Dave’s services to anyone in need of coaching or mentoring.
Dave is wonderful to work with.
His reliability, communication and efforts to go above and beyond has been a huge asset to ChicP.
He is very knowledgeable of the FMCG market and along with his experience in coaching, I would highly recommend working with him.
Dave has vast experience and knowledge within a very niche market and I would recommend him without hesitation.
Dave is absolutely awesome to work with, and excellent at what he does.
He is truly an expert in his field, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.
If I could describe Dave with 3 words, it would definitely be: trustworthy, honest, professional
It has been a pleasure meeting Dave every time, he definitely knows what he is talking about and he would always challenge in the way that I would find a solution in things in my business where I felt I am completely stuck.
He is always happy to hear from you and happy to help and he always makes you feel comfortable to speak about struggles in your life
