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.

Things are moving forward

After months of talking and not doing — mistake! — we’ve now set things in motion. A new site http://www.scotsleisure.com is now up and running. It’s aimed at the tourist market, with video reports on food & drink, heritage and adventure (ie: sports that the visitor can get involved with like golf, mountain biking, etc). The next stage will be setting up a series of business pages and making them e-commerce enabled.

This weekend, we talked about all of this at the Scottish North American Leadership Conference in Chicago. It went down well, according to Alan Downie who made the trip across. I joined in via Skype. Things all seem to be happening at once.
