“We believe in you.”
- Bob and Irene Bardsley, David's Parents
David Bardsley is a bubbling cauldron of optimism, intellectual curiosity, and exuberance. But it wasn't always that way. David’s was a troubled childhood, punctuated by years of intensive medical investigation, a period of institutionalization, and a misdiagnosis of mental retardation by the time he was nine years old.
Fortunately, it was a diagnosis his parents refused accept. They supported him, encouraged him, and challenged him to achieve what doctors said would be impossible. Eventually their mantra, “We believe in you,” became his mantra, “I believe in me.”
His is a remarkable story of perseverance and the unconditional support of loving parents. It was not easy, he would struggle with his dysfunctional behaviour for nearly two decades before a correct diagnosis of Tourette’s Syndrome and ADHD was made, but he would go on to earn a B.Sc., M.Sc., D.D.S. and Fellowship in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.
Today David carries that passion for self-actualization into every part of his life. He is deeply passionate about the benefits of education and our ability to shape our own destiny when in comes to the quality of our lives.
He is the founder of Silver Eagle Media, a company dedicated to helping individuals increase their cognitive ability and perform at their highest intellectual level. He spends most of his time crisscrossing the continent presenting his message to business executives, teachers, parents, students.
