David Pilbeam

UK Coach

David Pilbeam is a performance coach and facilitator who helps individuals and teams to deliver concrete results. A specialist in enabling individual and organisational change, he asks tough questions that allow people to evaluate options with regard to the challenges they face in their work and build the confidence to deliver on their goals.

David began his working life teaching Physical Education, spending three years in Malawi, and two in Portugal, working in International Schools. He then moved into the hospitality business in Hong Kong, where the challenge of working in a new industry in another radically different culture, taught him a lot about himself and the demands of leadership in a results driven environment.

Back in the UK, David became Operations Director for a health and leisure club start-up. Over the course of five years the business was created, developed and sold with 6 operating Clubs and over 400 staff. David then joined Tom Peters Company where he helped individuals and teams deliver change and overcome personal and organisational challenges.

David has worked as a business coach for the last 15 years, during which time he has worked on projects for both large and small organisations, including: Texas Instruments, Rolls-Royce, Applied Biosystems, Toshiba, IKEA, Luxoft, Cybex International, Nautilus, CPP, Experian, and AXA. This work has covered UK, mainland Europe and USA.
