My workshops are educational, interactive, and filled with practical information that you and your group can implement immediately.
Whether you're a leader within a Fortune 500 company, the founder of a new start up, or a speaker delivering talks on a stage in front of thousands, your appearance and personal style is the medium for your message.
I work with clients to help them ensure that their image authentically reflects who they are, and it is working for them and not against them.
In the short time I've been working with David, I've already seen and felt a change in my image. The compliments I get on my clothing and other facets of my appearance are inspiring. He's a joy to work with as well. He's direct, yet gentle and supportive, meeting me where I'm at, challenging me appropriately without pushing me uncomfortably.
My experience with David McKnight was EXCEPTIONAL in every way! I initially consulted with David for a wardrobe evaluation, then personal style enhancement, and then personal shopping for a few great interview outfits. His innate aesthetic abilities are phenomenal and he was able to easily design the perfect professional wardrobe for me -- all the while understanding my comfort level and adhering to my budget. He also scrounged around in my closet and gave 'new life' to some basic, classic items (cashmere sweaters, black watch plaid blazer) by pairing them with new shoes or a new belt. Even though I only purchased relatively few items, I had about 15 new outfits!
I enjoyed working with David. He has helped move me beyond my go to choices for wardrobe and helped me see more options by adding a few key pieces. He is professional, creative, and easy to work with. Overall it has been a great experience and I look forward to working with him again.
While working with David I accomplished a greater self esteem and realized I can accomplish anything I set my mind too such as building my pricing model framework which allowed me to attract clients. I would not had done so prior to working with David.
I have been working with David for more than a year now and I have to tell you he is the best of the best. I started working with him in purely a coaching capacity as he helped with developing my brand. One month into our coaching relationship, he added value by helping me get my website updated and setting up polished photo shoot completed. 2 months into our coaching relationship, he encouraged me to write a book and 10 months later I've published my first book. Working with David has been beneficial because on a quarterly basis we set goals for my brand and work to accomplish those goals. Working toward my goals has further helped me to spread awareness of my brand.
This was my first professional coaching experience… and I definitely had a lot of room for self-improvement. Instead of focusing on the negative, David honed in on my strengths, which helped me improve my confidence in interactions with my peers. From there, he continued to give me tools for my softskill toolkit – from tried & true phrases to help me gain executive buy-in to reframing strategies to help me see the silver lining in every situation to breathing techniques to help me respond instead of react. In the course of 6 sessions, I became a better listener, a better manager, a better teammate, a better employee – an all-around better version of me. David believed in me from the start and never gave up on me even when I doubted myself. I wholeheartedly recommend David as a coach.
David is an excellent career coach! He keeps me focused on my tasks, my priorities, and my goals. He as been extremely instrumental in my transition from a full-time job to starting my own business. He encourages me to remain motivated and keep the momentum going on my projects. David is passionate about his clients and wants them to succeed. I would recommend him for anyone who is serious about getting their business moving in a positive and successful direction.
