After 30 years of roaming the country, reporting Scotland for a wide range of radio and television programmes, David Calder has retired from day-to-day broadcasting.

However, he has not hung up his microphone. He has created a local podcast for Portobello - the Porty Podcast - and is working on another - Spirit of Scotland - about Whisky, Gin and Craft Beer!

He's also invested in new technology to help firms use video as a marketing tool. The technology means that clients can provide the stills or video and David turns it into professional content!

Working with his wife, Penny, he provides workshops on media and communication skills, face-to-face in small groups or in webinars.

Public Speaking

Posted by on 15 May 2009

I’ve just been on one of the best public speaking courses ever. It’s run by a fascinating guy called Erick Rainey and his company is called Rainworks. He’s a global prize-winning speaker in his own right and he has the ability to improve your self confidence no end.
I now have to follow his mantra:
I am a mountain
I will follow my goals
I have set my inner compass
I will persist until I succeed…
in whatever field I chose — and at the moment, there are four, interconnected fields:
online video, communication skills training, public speaking and ebooks.
Let’s say I have plenty of opportunity.
Til next time
