Episode 11: Playing the Game of Life


In this episode, Joeel and Natalie interview life coaching pioneer David Key.

David transitioned from a career in sales after being inspired by a series of events that showed him the power of the mind. His hunger to learn how the mind worked and how changing our thoughts and beliefs could change our lives lead him to become a Master Trainer in Hypnosis and the first Association of NLP Accredited Trainer in the world. He created a successful life coaching business before life coaching was a thing and has taken what he has learned over 30 years and has trained over 55,000 people from over 40 countries through his award-winning, dynamic and innovative online and in-room coaching programs.

Joeel and Natalie are particularly excited to be helping David share his inspirational story with their listeners because David’s training program had a profound effect on their lives. During a period of long-term illness, while Joeel was bedridden, they enrolled in David’s Neuro Linguistic Programming online training, and what they learned about the power of their own minds helped them turn what some would say is a curse into a blessing. Today, the three are collaborating to continue to spread David’s powerful NLP and Coaching strategies through a Certification program through Transformation Academy.

David’s powerful storytelling and sense of humor make his story truly inspirational and fun, and his authenticity, passion for contribution and willingness to embrace uncertainty, and make him a world-class teacher to us all.

David Key is a pioneer in the life coaching and NLP field and has been working with clients and training practitioners for 30 years. He is one of the most sought after behavioral strategists in the UK. He is also a Master Trainer of Hypnosis, a best selling author, a transformative coach and teacher of The Three Principles. David was the very first Association of NLP (ANLP) Accredited Trainer in the world and is a pioneer in the field. He was also the recipient of the prestigious APCTC (Association of Professional Coaches, Trainers and Consultants) Outstanding Achievement Award in 2015 for his outstanding contribution to the coaching industry.

Today, David is a leading teacher and practitioner of the revolutionary new paradigm known as The Three Principles. David was one of a select group of coaches to be personally mentored by Doctor George Pransky, the man who was famously described by English philosopher and writer Colin Wilson as "the greatest psychological mind of our time". The Principles - in David's own words - have 'turned conventional Freudian analysis on its head, sweeping away a century of misunderstandings about the way in which we human beings experience and process reality'. The insights he has gained have transformed David's life, both personally and professionally, and he now spends all his time taking the message to other trainers and coaches, to businesses and private individuals.
