“When I first started working with the police, I was a young computer programmer developing a new major incident system. On this project and first case, I met an officer who told me he knew nothing about computers. I told him; I know nothing about murders! I knew we’d get on.”
With plenty of stories to share, and the encouragement of his wife, David also began giving talks about his years spent in the incident rooms – as well as guest speaking on cruise ships. Public speaking came quite naturally to him:
“I was no stranger to standing up and talking, it’s just a different audience and a different topic now,” he says.
David has shown that retirement doesn’t have to mean retiring your knowledge and experience, and using your skills in different ways could mean a whole new career path for you.
