Coaching for Leaders / Coaching for Life

Coach: David Bottomley
Coaching Categories:
Business Coaching, Career Coaching, Executive Coaching, Leadership Coaching, Life Coaching, Mindset Coaching, Relationship Coaching


After a successful career in industry, including at Board level, I left full-time employment two years ago to establish myself as an independent executive/leadership and personal coach. I wanted to use my experience, empathy and personal skills to give value back to others in business, charities and in the world at large. I completed Barefoot Coaching’s post graduate course in Business and Personal Coaching course and became a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF). I am now accredited as an ICF Associate Certified Coach (ACC), having coached over 60 clients, around half of these executives and senior leaders.
My coaching style is to listen carefully and to ask revealing and challenging questions. I use a range of thought-provoking exercises to help you learn more about yourself, see new perspectives, and come to practical and potentially life-changing conclusions and resolutions.
I help people to develop their full potential by using all of their unique strengths, values, energy and personality.
I enable leaders to lead and and not just manage, to be open and engaging with their teams and colleagues, and release their own creative energy to become trusted and inspirational leaders.
I work with people to plan their career, and for those leaving full-time employment, to re-imagine their “third age”.
I work with teams to help them improve their mutual support and collaboration, resolve dysfunctions and to become more productive and fulfilled. I help all sorts of individuals with life and career planning, and carry out pro bono coaching for people with mental-health and other life challenges.

Industry Accreditations

I spent 25 years as a manager and leader in business, managing technology and delivering business change in the retail, healthcare, and supply chain sectors.  For the last 5 years, I was the IT Director and board member for Specsavers, Northern Europe, based in Copenhagen. Prior to that I held a number of senior positions with Boots the Chemist, Boots Opticians, AAH Pharma logistics, Lloydspharmacy, Punch Taverns and Waitrose supermarkets.
I am a successful and energetic change leader, with an extensive record of delivering great results, through clear vision, effective strategy, confident implementation and by building strong relationships. I have worked with company boards, senior management, internal teams and vendors, to deliver genuine business value at pace.
Throughout my career, my focus has always been on people - being a genuine and approachable leader; building and developing engaged and high performing teams; encouraging and supporting individuals to reach their full potential. I have led and transformed teams of up to 100 people and delivered several cultural and organisational change programmes.
