David certainly lived up to the recommendation and has helped me to better lead my men to achieve outstanding success on a number of occasions since then.

“As a manager – whether it is in Sports or Business - you sometimes need someone who can support you to better influence your team. I have worked with Dave Elliott for two years now, and he, not only has helped me raise the level of trust and self-esteem in my men, but has also highly contributed to prepare me to lead them to success.”
Gerard Houllier. Manager Olympique Lyonnaise FC ,  Liverpool FC, Technical Director France National Team.  read more

                                                                        ~~

Your training has helped me to enhance my effectiveness as a coach and gain a deeper understanding of motivation and the important role self-esteem and positive self-expectancy play in the development of the full potential of players. I firmly believe that your work should be included in the development of players and coaches at all levels of football if we are to regain our place as a major soccer nation.
John Cartwright. Former Professional Player at West Ham United, Academy Director Crystal Palace FC and Technical Director FA School of Excellence Lilleshall  read more

                                                                        ~~

I really can’t thank you enough for the way you helped us in our F. A. cup games with Newcastle and for the inspiration you gave me and the players to create club and football history. The way you helped us change our beliefs and motivation has been nothing short of amazing. I was sceptical at first but now I’m a disciple forever. I thoroughly recommend your attitude and motivational training to anyone who wants to achieve success  – be it in sport or business.
Paul Fairclough. Manager Stevenage Borough FC, Barnet FC and FA England National game X1  read more

                                                                        ~~

Your motivational sessions have had an immediate positive effect on my players performance and results despite my firm belief that they would not. I have seen many different approaches to improving performance in my career as a professional footballer as captain of Arsenal FC, Chelsea FC, and my Country (Wales). However, I have yet to see anyone achieve the very real results that you have helped us to achieve. They are simply amazing. You have been an enormous source of insight and motivation for me both professionally and personally.
Peter Nicholas. Former professional Player at Chelsea FC, Arsenal FC, Crystal Palace FC and Welsh International.  read more

                                                                        ~~

Your work has been very beneficial not only to the whole team, but also for my own self-esteem, and has helped me to develop a greater insight into human behaviour and motivation.
Jim Lowther. MSc. Wimbledon FC.  Technical Advisor to the FA.   read more

                                                                         ~~

Dave Elliott’s motivational training workshops helped the togetherness of the team and obviously my own progression. We are more fighting as a team even when we are not playing well, and I have more responsibility.
Thierry Henry. Arsenal FC and France International

                                                                         ~~

Dave helped me to improve my mental awareness, and the team to be more open with each other, but the most important thing was the positive effect on team spirit and results. I would recommend Dave’s work because it can help anyone, in any field.
Michael Owen. Liverpool FC and England International.

                                                                         ~~

Dave helped us a lot to raise our belief and attitude. Working as a team in the workshop meetings helped us show more fight and spirit on the pitch and feel more willingness to play and win everything as a team. Everyone wants to fight more and wants to win every game, and everyone now believes we can.
Ashley Cole. Arsenal FC and England International.

                                                                      ~~

I feel that as a coach Dave Elliott’s attitude and motivational coaching workshops have helped me to look at myself and my players in a new way. The players have embraced the exercises, and have been much more open and frank in their views. I feel the meetings have really been of benefit and I have noticed a vast difference in my player’s attitude and behaviour, which has affected our recent results immensely. I would like to see more one-to-one meetings with individual players because I feel it has helped immensely.
Sammy Lee. Former Professional Footballer Liverpool FC and England International and assistant coach Bolton FC, Liverpool FC and currently England International assistant coach to Sven Goran Eriksson.

                                                                    ~~

I would recommend this training “if it helps only 1% it’s worth it.
Jamie Carragher. Liverpool FC and England International.

I would definitely recommend Dave’s work because it is character building, especially for younger players, and can help people from all walks of life, as well as sport, to raise their self-esteem, and improve attitude and results. In our first season working with Dave we became double Champions after not winning any silverware for three years, and went on to become the first team in history to complete an entire season undefeated. Dave helped us put the icing on the cake.
Martin Keown. Arsenal FC and England International.
                         
                                                                      ~~

Dave helped us to notice when you are above or below the line and being able to bring yourself above if you are below. Personally I have more self-belief and am happier. We’re winning.
Emille Heskey. Liverpool FC and England International.

                                                                       ~~

It is very important to understand yourself and the people you’re working with. Dave sessions helped the players to communicate more effectively and to understand themselves and each other better to get the best results.
Sol Campbell. Arsenal FC and England International.

                                                                        ~~

The meetings (with Dave) have been very beneficial. I have more self-belief, self-confidence and awareness of moods, feelings and emotions. Dave helped individuals to express views they wouldn’t without the (his facilitation) prompting. Helped us to come out of the comfort zone and therefore improving performances and improving results.
Danny Murphy. Charlton Athletic FC, Liverpool FC and England International.

                                                                         ~~

 The training has definitely helped us to win more games. No doubt.
John Arne Risse. Liverpool FC and Norway International.

                                                                         ~~

Yes. I think the (Dave’s) sessions are very useful for my mental state especially when I’m (injured) not in the team Helps us in the game the way we react on things, mentally stronger, gave us more self-belief, motivation, and team spirit.
Giovanni Van Bronckhorst.  Barcelona FC, Arsenal FC, Glasgow Rangers FC, Holland International.

                                                                            ~~

Dave helped me to squeeze every last drop of effort from my players in our famous FA cup games with Newcastle. The secret to the way we played was that Dave helped us all to raise our belief to truly believe we could win.
Paul Fairclough. Manager Stevenage Borough FC, Barnet FC and FA England National game X1

                                                                             ~~

How I feel the training with Dave helped most was getting the team together, talking to each other. There is more fighting spirit and it has had a positive effect on results. Thank you.
Freddie Ljungberg. Arsenal FC and Sweden International.

                                                                              ~~

Dave’s training helped players to come out of their shells (comfort zone) and play more for each other, which has had a positive effect on results. If anything I would like more staff coaching meetings, and would recommend this training to others because it helps players and coaches to notice their feelings, be more composed and win more games.
Phil Thompson. Former professional player and Captain of Liverpool FC, England International and Assistant coach Liverpool FC. 
                                                                               
                                                                               ~~

The meetings with Dave are interesting. We talk about things that happen in meetings and those things make you think, which is a positive thing because there is more bonding. I would recommend this training to others because it won’t affect you in a negative way so it could only help.
Dennis Bergkamp. Arsenal FC and Holland International.

                                                                             ~~

Dave’s training sessions helped us to have the mental response-ability to do right things.
Biscan Lauren. Arsenal FC, Real Mallorca FC and Cameroon International.

                                                                                 ~~

Dave’s sessions helps you understand the needs of your team mates, and made me more aware of my responsibility to the team and not to play within yourself. Helped us believe in ourselves more as a team and we are playing together as a team more.
Matthew Upson. Birmingham City FC, Arsenal FC, England International.

                                                                                 ~~

Your work gave players a much better self-confidence and mental awareness. A lot of players are playing better and our results are significantly better now we start with you. Gave us back the confidence. Helps us to perform better.
Stephan Henchoz. Liverpool FC, Switzerland International.
