David loves retail – and business in general – loves supporting and helping like minded business people with ideas and tips – and learning from them! But helping others to earn more, achieve more and just BE more is my passion.
I always love a challenge and have faced many over the years! Now, my challenge is to help fellow business owners to ride out the current crisis and emerge unbowed the other side! My partnership with CBN Networking and Spear Marketing now means that I can offer collective expertise and support in many different areas of business without any cost to you – and I’m easily contactable!!

My substantial background in both wholesale and retail businesses, and operating a successful business throughout the recession of the past decade, encourages me to help small business owners. Through my collaboration with Spear Marketing & CBN, I love connecting business owners with potential customers through an active reverse-lead generation program & business networking events.

Helping others has always been part of my life. I always believed that we each have a responsibility to give back where we can. My own helping history began in 1959 as a schoolboy volunteer in Dublin with the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul , I was also in the SVP in Waterford for a number of years, and in Cork since I arrived here in 1970/71. Bringing support, friendship and self sufficiency to others is therefore, very much part of who I am!

I enjoy meeting new people and sharing new ideas and perspectives! I love to talk about business in general, about making positive changes in one’s life, about building a stronger business and networking with others. Contact me personally anytime by sending an email to me at dpholden43@gmail.com.
