David Silver

Director, Years Ahead
David has a distinguished background in management and marketing, which he gained in the consumer electronics sector.  Immediately following his corporate career he established a communications, change and research agency, which allowed him to pursue parallel interests, and he has been an active contributor to the voluntary sector for the last 20 years. His interest in the issues affecting older people and his understanding of the business context in which independent living products and services operate are integral to the Years Ahead proposition.

David’s marketing, retail and commercial background has given him a keen interest in how research can help shape strategies that enable organisations to engage with their older consumers.  He has advised and consulted for many of the major names in the Assistive Technology arena, as well as a wide number of public sector organisations.
David has co-authored a number of research publications in the Mobility and Independent Living arena, most recently in conjunction with Coventry University as part of a 3-year study funded by the Technology Strategy Board.
David has served as director, trustee and treasurer of numerous charities and was retained as the business advisor of national disability charity, Assist UK (formerly the Disabled Living Centres Council) for ten years.  He has also helped restructure and implement change programmes within a number of charities and businesses over the last 20 years.
David has recently returned from a volunteering sabbatical in India, where he was exposed to a whole new world, which included inequalities and poverty on an unimaginable scale – an experience which has greatly broadened his life experience and expanded his horizons.
