I’m David Lim. More than 20 years ago I led the 1st Singapore Mt Everest Expedition to success, and then began to receive numerous inquiries to speak to organisations in order to share my thoughts on leadership, working as teams and motivation. Over time, I realized that I could make this a sustainable business. For the past decade, I’ve had 50 paid engagements a year and became financially independent seven years ago.

Based in the ‘Venice of the East’, or Singapore; I’ve spent more than 20 years in the business of professional speaking/training/coaching/consulting – with a particular focus on Asia-Pacific Markets. As a result , I am constantly approached by these groups of people for professional mentoring or help in growing a business based around their expertise.Many others with expertise in technology, sales, wellness, and corporate leadership could and are making a significant income from their knowhow through various means. My role here is to offer a mentoring and coaching to massively improve how they run their business.

You are typically a:

  • Working professional wanting to pivot into a career as a professional trainer/speaker.
  • Current workshop leader and professional speaker wanting to break into or do better in the keynote, or ‘paid presentation’ market.
  • Working professional interested in improving their platform speaking skills in their expertise with a view of speaking on occasion for fees or to develop a position of expertise in their industry.
  • Working professional with expertise transferable to a solo-preneur type of business and seeking to create a back-up business in these uncertain times.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be a multiple amputee, Olympic athlete, Mt Everest climber or some superhuman to be a successful professional speaker. In reality, most professionals making a living from speaking and training platforms are topic experts whose content and knowhow are helping organisations solve their problems. Some are motivational in their own right without the need of some dramatic past experience. Many become ‘rockstars’ within their own industry niche. So this is not a gimmicky, get-rich type of business. But you can and will short-cut many of the skills and processes that you would normally take many years working with me. Don’t learn from people who have not been a success in this business, and don’t try to learn from someone who is not operating at the level to which you aspire. Right away you can avail yourself to learning resources right here to help you become or be a better professional speaker; or contact me for a no-obligation discovery call. What we will experience is a quick run through of your background, context, desires and dreams. From there, we will assess what are the next best steps for you to take. For those who prefer a more customized level of support and 1:1 coaching, contact me for a discovery call. We’ll explore your background, context, dreams and skill sets and see if we are a fit to take you to the next stage of your professional speaker journey. In our six or 12 month coaching programmes, you will learn or improve:
  • Platform and presentation skills.
  • Building a unique brand.
  • Your collaterals and preview video or showreels.
  • Negotiating client fees and contracts.
  • Troubleshooting aspects of your career.
  • Developing products for multiple income streams.
  • Your level of topic expertise.
