David Walters left Bolton School in 1980 to join Britannia Royal Naval College prior to his training at the Royal Naval Engineering College, Manadon. He qualified as a Weapons Engineer Officer in the Royal Navy Submarine Service serving in both nuclear hunter killer submarines and diesel electric boats. After a brief period in the Canadian submarine service he entered civilian employment as an emergency management consultant. David gained extensive experience working in the nuclear power industry in North America as an emergency management and security consultant. During this period he served on the Disaster Management Council of the American Society of Industrial Security and was a regular participant at the Ontario based World Conference on Disaster Management. Post 9/11 David delivered a series of lectures on building life safety planning in New York, Washington DC, Chicago and Toronto. It was his work with multinational corporations as a crisis management consultant that caused him to develop a keen interest in the effect of operational stress on first responders. This resulted in researching many methods for overcoming stress which led him to develop a technique known as "The Walters MethodT" for teaching people to become resilient to stress. That is learning how to avoid becoming stressed rather than simply attempting to manage stress. A variant of this method was developed in response to the plight of British service personnel returning from Afghanistan and Iraq, which has been used to good effect in teaching veterans who to overcome their symptoms of PTSD. David now leads Help Me Overcome (www.helpmeovercome.com) a growing company specialising in the area of corporate and executive stress resilience and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. In his younger days, David was a keen mountaineer and caver, but his passion of curry cookery and real ale has put paid to those more adventurous pursuits. David is happily married to Yve and lives in Lincolnshire with his teenage son and daughter.
