I am David Gallimore

a.k.a. Captain Coach David

Experienced captain, business and leadership coach

From my adventures in business and on the ocean, I know that proven systems and strategies create a more enjoyable journey, keep everyone safe and get us to our destination in time.

As an entrepreneur, your job is to create and manage those critical processes in your business. You thus remain calm throughout a storm because you know exactly where you're headed, how your ship operates, which crew members are in charge of which operation and how much pressure the vessel can handle.

I have taken all the lessons that I have learned in business to how I operate my ship and vice-versa, and I am looking forward to being able to do the same for you.

I have rarely worked with anyone who is so personally invested in growing my business and myself as a leader like David.
