B&A Business Skills Mentor - David Baker

Teaching and coaching sports have been a major highlight of my life

David Baker

Believe & Achieve Business Skills Mentor

I am a father to three wonderful children - this the highlight of my life. I’ve always tried to do my best, I aim to help people and try and make their lives better.

Sport is a powerful vehicle for this, so I’m usually involved in something active! As well as the normal ‘Dad’ roles, music, film, and travel are my main areas of interest. 

Have you always been involved with sport?

Sport and education have been central to my personal and professional life. I’ve always participated in recreational activities, from playing non-league football, to daily routines of healthy living, involving workouts, swimming, jogging, even the odd paddle and surf! Teaching and coaching sports have been a major highlight of my life, which has now been incorporated into my current professional role. 

What do you do in your working life?

I am now employed by The Premier League to monitor, support and advise professional football clubs and their young players. I’d like to use my experiences, lessons and knowledge to support those impacted by meningitis.
