Dave Paton

David PatonDave had a successful career with the fire and rescue service in operational and training roles with a significant contribution as a senior manager to leadership and team development. During this time he was seconded to the audit commission to develop and lead a review of operational ability, and was instrumental in turning around a loss-making training function, maintaining it in profit for over 5 years.

Upon leaving the FRS he set off on a 20,000 mile sailing race – which ended on a desert island. Being in such an enclosed space with captain and crew, and very tough conditions, for many months had a deep influence on him. This experience helped form his understanding of team effectiveness and leadership capability which he took forward into his new career.

Dave is now a highly qualified corporate and executive coach with his own coaching company and has developed a unique coaching programme which he uses to help businesses, leaders and teams bring their people and processes together in order to achieve their ambitions. He also delivers coaching support to a number of youth charities and works with the Ocean Youth Trust in Scotland.
