David is a founding member of The Trust Project, a Board member of the Arthur F Burns Fellowship and a member of the international media council of the World Economic Forum. He is the chair of the Canadian Journalism Foundation, a non-profit organisation that represents all Canadian journalism in furthering the understanding of journalism in a democracy. He is the creator of World News Day, an annual audience initiative involving 18,000 media organisations around the world.

He was named Young Journalist of the Year in Northern Ireland in 1995 for his initial work on the Final Flight of Zulu Delta 576.
