Dave, who the heck are you?

You can find out more here but, in a nutshell, I am an ex-cop who has lived with anxiety for most of my life.  I haven't always managed that anxiety well, but have learned to do so.  In the process I have come to realise that taking care of my wellbeing and positively managing the demands and challenges of live and work is critical to staying positive, healthy and happy. I now share my research, experience and strategies in workshops, at conferences and on video (check out my my resource area for more).

I like to use a bit of humour and some vegetables as props to provide memorable metaphors for those strategies.  Above all, I care about how helping others to cope and thrive in today's world.

What's the difference between the Sprouts Squad and the Sprout Academy?

Simple - contact time.  In a nutshell, you can become a member of the Sprout Academy for a lower subscription and access all the courses and resources to help you improve your wellbeing and focus on achieving your goals.

As a Sprout Squad Member you get all of that (membership to the Academy) AND group coaching each month with Dave and your fellow Squad Members - no more than 5 other members in your Squad.

So, if you are happy to run solo (although you get the chance to ask me your questions in my monthly Q&A facebook group), then The Sprout Academy will be more than sufficient. 

Update:  I will now only be taking Sprout squad Members from those already members of the Sprout Academy.

Can I access the Member resources and The Group?

You should be able to access everything from your personal devices using most internet browsers (Chrome, Firefox), including smart phones, tablets, lap-top and desk-tops.  Due to security on some work devices (depending on where you work) - you may not be able to access the resources or Facebook Group (Dave's Allotment).  The good news is that much of the material is related to changes you can make personally and you may prefer to access via personal devices in any case.

How will I get notified of access?

Once you confirm your order you will be redirected to a log in page where you will create a user name and password for your private member access.  I will also email you the details to ensure you don't lose them.  And I will email you details for accessing the Facebook Group Q&A's and Webinars.  I'll also keep in touch about any additional news or new courses and resources being added to the 'Sprout Academy' to ensure you don't miss anything.

What do I get?

I am a big believer in making ongoing small but significant changes in life to shift our wellbeing in a positive direction.  After all, that's how things can slip into the negative - bit by bit (or sprout by sprout as I like to say).  So the aim of this offering is to support you over the coming months in re-focusing on your wellbeing whilst ensuring you still take care of the demands placed upon you in work and life. 

So here's more on what you will get:

Monthly 'Sustainable Success' Webinar style Facebook Live in Dave's Allotment

Each month we have theme (for example April 2018 was 'Sleep month).  In the Facebook group, I share tips, tools and insights to help you improve a key area of your wellbeing, performance or focus.  In addition, I will hold a monthly 'Video Live' where I share some key lessons to help and, on occasions will be joined by a subject matter expert. It's kind of like a webinar but (I hope) nowhere near as boring as some can be ;0

Man Sprouts podcast extra material and interviews

My Man Sprouts Podcast is a bi-weekly audio show dedicated to informing listeners on wellbeing and health matters.  From time to time, the show features shorter clips from longer interviews with guests.  As a bonus for signing up to 'The Sprout Academy,' I will provide exclusive access to these longer interviews along with bonus material from me.

Monthly Facebook Q&A

Monthly Facebook Q&A

Monthly Facebook Q&A

Once a month I hold an informal Q&A session in 'Dave's Allotment' - a members only private Facebook group. The aim is to allow members to ask questions of me, or just listen/ watch as I clarify points or answer those burning questions.  It's a chance to hear from other members. I will be following the monthly/ quarterly themes of the webinars but this is an opportunity to ask wider ranging questions.
