Helping Teams

Helping people work and negotiate better outcomes – together


We are living in extraordinary times. Shouldn’t you consider solutions beyond the ordinary too? David’s team solutions are delivered through his company, Everest Motivation Team Pte Ltd. He and his associates have been helping organisations seriously address their teambuilding development and deliver REAL return on investment, instead of platitudes and ineffectual feedback forms. Do you know what you are getting from each dollar spent on ‘ teambuilding’?

Most monies spent, in our opinion is largely wasted as there has not been a well thought-out process to encourage and equip teams with the skills and mindsets to work together effectively.

“To tell the truth, I was skeptical at first – that this teambuilding programme could make a difference. But since the programme, people have been more pro-active, and I have been getting more reports and information from staff in a timely and helpful fashion”

The workshop was terrific. Both Ross and I have used many of your techniques already; and I might add quite successfully. I understood where and how much power I had in the negotiation each time. Once I did that I then determined the best style to use based on the work we did, and I ended up with three very close results. Additionally I have put the “nibble” to good use in those negotiations. David, you are a real inspiration. Keep up the great work and keep sharing the message.

…wonderful negotiation skills workshop.It was very well presented and conducted. The material was very relevant and certainly applicable to what we are doing in our day to day business.

I have been in sales for ten years and was quite confident about my style before attending David’s workshop.  I learnt very quickly in his course however that I was using only a few techniques and there were many more available especially in terms of negotiating tactics.  In-fact (this year) I have quadrupled my sales target, which was helped enormously by putting into practice the things I learnt on this course.

Are you overwhelmed by the amount of ground you need to cover and the outcomes to be translated in the workplace afterwards?
