His flamboyant show gardens have been a popular draw for members of the Royal Family, celebrities, movie stars and sporting personalities.
His sound blue chip business pedigree mixed with his ability to tackle the impossible with boundless energy, has firmly established David’s business ‘Domoney Ltd’ as the destination for many of the UK’s leading brands looking to get noticed.

David Domoney’s ‘achieving the impossible’ key note talks are a refreshing change from others who talk the talk without walking the walk. David says, “to get to the promised land you have to travel through the wilderness first”!
Dramatic before and after visuals of real life experiences fuel David’s anecdotes and his overwhelming enthusiasm create unique presentations on the conference circuit that are as compelling as they are inspiring.
David says, “When you’re creating something for a brand that gets noticed, 30% think you’re mad, 30% zap your strength by saying it can’t be done, 30% fueled with a combination of jealousy and politics actively try to stop you, but it’s the 10% that believe in you that make the difference between success and failure. You’ve got to identify the 10% and make them fire proof until the project is a reality. That’s why when asked by journalists I say with pride, ‘My background is 20 years in Big Retail. It’s a far more significant grounding than my four years studying plants!”
Engaging, charismatic, passionate and totally committed, David delivers the sort of on stage experience that you would expect from a key note speaker with ten years experience presenting on national ‘Live’ ITV1 and BBC Television.
His past corporate life includes heading up buying teams across the globe, spending £100’s of millions for companies including Texas Homecare, Boots, Do It All, Sainsburys, Homebase and Safeways.
His successes quickly secured him a decade run as retail correspondent and commentator for many National Retail and Marketing Trade Publications, including Haymarket, Bauer, National Magazine Group, IPC and many international publications in the US, Canada, Moscow, Germany, France and the Far East, who were looking for David’s unique take on the extreme ways that companies are successful in gaining recognition.
David’s television career equals his retail pedigree, with a decade as a presenter for ITV 1 on ten of the station’s flag ship shows, including GMTV and This Morning.
He excels in consumer watchdog shows, not only presenting but also setting up stings, exposing rogue businesses in shows such as the ”From Hell series” and “House of Horrors”. His stories are as amazing as they are frightening, with body guards and face offs as he exposes the ‘Bad in Business’.
His Management abilities and love of the garden have made him ITV1’s make-over king with over 100 TV garden transformations for Carol Vorderman’s Better Homes, ITV1’s Solution Street and Garden Angels. His amazing ability to transform a garden in under an hour has made him a household name in the ITV1 cult show “60 Minute Make-Over”.
Today David ‘relaxes’ with Shark Diving Holidays (as a PADI Qualified Master Scuba Diver), hard track motor cycling on his Vulcan V800 and spar boxing.
He says, “once you’ve been immersed as a multiple retailer with all the pressure/politics/highs and lows, a life outside the mayhem has to be packed with adrenalin”.
For big businesses, hiring a speaker like David Domoney is like hiring one of their own.
David talks on three key note topics:
The Impossible is a Reality – Motivational with sound business case studies
Diamonds in the Rough – A look at the very best from around the globe
A live show during which the complete stage is transformed into a garden in 35 minutes!
