Clients & Testimonials

Businesses and people I've worked with and their opinion of me below.


Sophia Hilton
Not Another Salon

I had no idea what I was doing when I opened Not Another Salon. No idea how I would raise the capital to make it work. David guided me with industry knowledge I would never have known, that made a huge difference to my setup. I'm forever grateful.

He knows the hairdressing industry inside out and is not only a fantastic representative for hairdressing but is a constant advocate for charitable works and business bodies alike. David brings his upbeat personality and positive outlook along with sound business advice and knowledge and is an asset to all those who have the pleasure of working with him.

The Gallery Hair and beauty Salon

As the managing Director of the Gallery Hairdressing. I would love to fully support and endorse the services of David Drew, Impact Business Consultant.
We have used David’s services since 2007 and in that time he has helped me to lead the salon from strength to strength from forming business development strategies to recommending HR consultants.

David has helped me focus and develop my creative brain into a more business mind that has been crucial in helping us
win business awards in 2014, 2015, 2016 consecutively BHBA’s “Independent Salon Of The Year -1” at HJ’s Business awards. 

He is a friend and a confidant who respects the love we have for our salon yet at the same time is not afraid to challenge and ask the difficult questions needed.
I would welcome any phone call or letter to discuss how influential he has been in helping us achieve and most importantly re- set mine and the salon’s goals

Mark Holmes CEAA
Managing Director at GISBY LEGAL

I was very happy to work with David in my previous career. You'd be hard-pressed to find anything he doesn't know about the industry and I always found him to be professional and reliable. If you're thinking about hiring David, go ahead, he'll do a great job for you and your business.



Sophie Hill
Professional Beauty Industry Communications Consultant,, 
Head of Marketing for Headmasters UK

Having seen David in action both in a seminar environment and also in a mentoring situation I can highly recommend him. He has extensive knowledge of business practices and a great deal of personal experience that he brings to his coaching, to offer practical and sound advice in a friendly, unintimidating manner. After a seminar or mentor session he offers full back up through telephone contact on a regular basis to help you implement his recommendations and see your business grow.



Ann Herman
Patron of Honour, Show Director, Fellowship For British Hairdressing 

I have known David for many years and have worked closely with him over the past six years whist he held the position of Chairman (2 years) and Main Council Protagonist (6 years) for The Fellowship For British Hairdressing. He prides himself on his integrity and deservedly so. He is honest, reliable and can be trusted to deliver any allotted task on time.

He is a former salon owner who earned an extremely good reputation within the industry over a period of 40 years. David is an excellent compere and show presenter having been responsible for many events during his time as a Chairman (Salon International and Pro Hair Live, Manchester) to name but two.. and I wish him every success.
