Since leaving the Parliament, David has been working with regional economies and communities across Australia to prepare strategies for maximising economic and social renewal underpinned by broadband.

David has recently accepted a part time position advising the University of Tasmania on strategies to maximise the research potential of broadband in Tasmania.  He has also recently accepted a number of non-executive director positions.
