David has worked in the IT industry for over 20 years in the private, public, and voluntary sector.  He is currently an independent consultant advising organisations how to use technology to add value and help achieve their goals.  David lives in Lincolnshire and is married with one son.  In his spare time he enjoys watching rugby and sailing.

Being an organisation that is trying to reach out across the world with limited resources, David felt that his knowledge of IT could be particularly useful to The Society helping them to enhance their use of technology to communicate online. He also feels that having no direct experience of Encephalitis will help the board to provide the perspective of someone with no prior knowledge of the condition.
