Dave is known for his high energy and exhilarating on stage presence, he has the ability to connect with a crowd and deliver a message that will truly inspire.
You will come away from one of his seminars PUMPED!!
The Talk the Walk seminar is a seminar that was put together for high school students as a part of Auckland Transports Travelwise programme. The intention behind this seminar is to empower not only school student leaders but sports students and students of all walks with the power of conversation, the programme is also supported by collateral and AT staff with the goal to create change in the way themselves and their fellow high school students travel to school.
This seminar was the starting point for this new programme and when the idea was put forward to me I knew the ideal person to help bring it all together…. David. I had meet David and heard him speak when I was working at Rosehill college, he came in to do a 20 minute speech at the colleges sports awards David’s speech had that whole room silent from the moment he began till long after he finished whilst everyone was still processing the amazing things that they had just heard.
David’s ability to connect with his audience of 1 to 100 is outstanding and remarkable as I listened myself and watched the entire room you could see that although the entire room heard the same words for every single person in the room the words brought their own meaning, a different circumstance and or situation in which they can be applied.
The way in which David is able to empower people and give them self-belief and show the power is mesmerising and crazy special.
I would like to thank David for the part he played in the seminar he made it an amazing experience for all and I look forward to working with David in the future

Dave’s Mental Performance Seminars are Impressive!!! Our seminars for our Top Softball Players, coaches are an asset to all who attend and the turn out for the “Athletes: The Mental Edge Seminar” with 72 premier/reserve/u17/u19 players was impressive. He is a very motivating and engaging Mental Performance coach and the feedback I have received from his seminars within Auckland and North Harbour have been amazing. The knowledge he has can be used not just within Sports or at High Performance level, but also in life. I myself, as both a player and coach, appreciate and love the things he taught.

“David Niethe has been inspirational, uplifting and a driving force that has given boys who have been lucky enough to encounter him, a huge boost in mental attitude. He is able to arm these boys with the right skills to be able to mentally carry themselves through the hard times on the field and look forwards positively.
He has an instant rapport with the boys from the moment he starts talking and they have always given high praise and feedback to us after each session they have with him. If you want to be successful in anything that you do, having Dave on your team, giving you the tools to be able to get yourself through those challenging times and to see clearly and take advantage of the opportunities put in front of you is a no brainer.
He’s a top bloke and I cannot recommend him highly enough to anyone- not just in sport but in any circumstance where you need your mental game on point.”

Our season had been at best average. There had been good improvement in training, but when it came to racing we couldn’t break into the top slots. It soon became apparent to me that our weakness was in our self-belief.
That’s when I got hold of Dave to talk to the team.
What he did can best be described as an overnight transformation. Dave instilled the girls with both the will and the belief to be champions. We went from being at the back of the final to being at the front. At the North Island Championships the girls had a thrilling race to climb from 5th place to silver medal position in the closing stages of the race. I couldn’t believe my eyes. They then went on to repeat that performance at the New Zealand Championships a week later, beating the crew who took gold the week before.
I would definitely recommend Dave to anyone wishing to improve their results, whether that be in sport or business.
Dave is an absolute legend, the best in his field hands down. He has run Seminars for my branch (RNZN Physical training instructors), we wanted to get some tools and tips on how to push them through their mental barriers and limited beliefs, we all came away from the seminars with LOTS of valuable tools and saw things with new perspectives. The trade came away absolutely pumped, he realigned our attitude, educated us on how our brains are wired and how to get the best out of the people we train.
Dave has also spoken at one of the Chief of Navy’s talks to the Junior Sailors which he spoke about “what can they do for the Navy, not what the Navy can do for them” it was a major success.
