Today’s guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots podcast interview is Mr Dave Cooke, a father who has faced the most difficult of times, and in the process started changing the world.
As an accomplished businessman, author and motivational speaker, he was a man in control.
He coached groups of people – large and small to help them overcome the challenges that can derail all of us in our professional lives.
Dave helped increase revenue, he developed leaders, and improved teamwork….life was good.
Little did he know however, that whilst this side of his life was firing on all cylinders, his sons life was on a path that no parent would want them to be on.
Discovering his son was taking heroin, living homeless, and devoid of positivity in his life, our guest had a choice to make.
In fact he had no choice.
Dave Cooke turned his life both personally and professionally on its head to face his sons problems head-on, and provide the love and support that a father only knows.
And that was just the beginning of the tale.
A story, with many twists and turns, successes and failures, and an usual mode of transport which you wouldn’t expect to be part of the salvation of this father and son couple.
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs with the one and only Mr Dave Cooke.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How his sons addiction helped him find his own passion!
How he believes that his sons addiction is not going to be the thing that defines him!
When you get to the top of the pyramid then there is only one way to go, and that’s down!
How his son was so surprised in the speed that his Dad arrived to help him!
The reasons why he set himself the physical goal of cycling everyday!
