David, born in Malaysia was sent to residency school in Australia at an early age of 15 years to finish his secondary and tertiary schooling. The primary reason as David puts it “for him to be kicked out of home” at that early age was because his parents were concerned about David’s lack of confidence, shyness, dependence and fear of getting out to do things.

David was so shy, he would hide behind his mother’s petticoat even when relatives and friends would come to visit them. David dreaded talking and mixing with people. His stomach would churn and, in some instances, felt like throwing up. That was the state and frame of mind that David struggled through. His parents felt that the exposure of education in Australia would not just put David in firm foundation but also groom him to be a more confident out-going profession, which is the dream of every parent, particularly  an Indian Parent.

Today as a confident global speaker, trainer, coach and mentor to many, David have surely combated the infant challenge of “poor little me syndrome”.

David shares a lot more of this side of his story and how he combatted those infant challenges in his book, “I eXceL – Wired for Success” – Personal Excellence Blueprint.
