David Thomas

David Thomas is a speaker with an unbelievable and inspirational story who will show your audience how to manage change and challenge.David suffered a deeply abusive childhood at the hands of his alcoholic mother and aged stepfather.

He went off the rails at 16. He started burgling shops, attempted suicide twice, nearly killed a police officer one night, received a criminal conviction and was expelled from school.

He turned his life around and after a series of dead-end jobs, joined the Fire Service at 20.

He loved the job but struggled with studying. Aged 27, he bought a book on memory to help him pass his exams. Just 8 months later, he went to the World Memory Championships and came 4th.
