    21st Century sales and networking, one to one and group sessions

Welcome to your best source of modern, useful advice on networking and marketing yourself, your business and your product.

I believe that in the 21st Century we all need sales skills whatever line of work we are in

"We're all sales people now"


I was fed up with sales training stuck in the 1990's delivered by trainers who didn't understand the modern world, had no current experience and importantly no passion for the subject.  I’m sure you’ve been on courses like that too.  I've always said I could do better myself and so, here we are.
It's easy to pick the low growing fruit (think sales here) but the real juicy stuff is always on those hard to reach highest branches of the tree.  It’s harder to reach but the rewards are greater. This is where the good stuff is, hence Highest Branch.

Sales is in everything you do in business and life. Let me talk to your team, run a small group seminar, do some practical 1:1 coaching or present at your event. Delegates will leave enthused with a better understanding of the modern sales world, buzzing with enthusiasm and fired up with a passion to succeed.

I specialise in modern sales techniques, business networking and confident presenting skills delivered in a friendly non-threatening manner.  My aim to share my passion.

So take a look at our latest blogs of tips and advice, see how I can directly help you and your business climb to the Highest Branch.

  • Spot on. I found David's presentation friendly, informative, easy to understand and relate to. It had my full attention, and in that short time, there were a few gems that I have really taken note of. Many thanks!

  • David shows an ability to communicate on all levels to a full range of different people. He strips bare the mystique that some people like to propagate around the subject of sales and enables people to identify what really matters. If you're unsure how best to present your business and sell your products or services, call David!

  • This seminar was exactly what I had in mind - interesting, inspiring, entertaining - and all delivered in an relaxed and easy to assimilate way. Thank you.

  • Highly recommended.  Not your usual study day didn't nod off once.  Left with lots of top tips and secrets of the trade to put into place

  • I just wanted to drop you a line to say that my two consultants thoroughly enjoyed the training you provided at the Uni through the Chamber.  They came back very enthusiastic!

  • I had the pleasure to receive some top-class training from David on the 8th of October this year. We identified the need for presentation skills training to enhance and develop the skill-sets of our solicitors. David designed and delivered a bespoke training package which was fantastic. Engaging, fun and interactive is was perfectly pitched and a real success. 

    I would thoroughly recommend David's Highest Branch services to all. Looking forward to working with you again in the future.

  • David has a unique skill in presenting marketing and selling ideas. David's blogs are enjoyable to read, as David communicates easily showing great empathy and friendliness to his readers.

  • We have just had an excellent training day with David / Highest Branch at Lyzzick Hall near Keswick. Dentistry is a highly personal business and excellent, clear communication is essential. I asked David to come and work with our team because I know that he has a talent for getting this over. 

    David hit the nail right on the head, his delivery was pitched just right and by making comparisons with his experiences in the motor trade he helped us to broaden our outlook on the processes involved in high quality ethical communication and customer service. 

    It was a delight to sit and watch and my team "got it" one by one.... 

    We will be having him back...
