Apart from the first six months of his professional career, which he left due to a dream he had, Dr Clive King has spent the whole of his career supporting global technology clients for Oracle, one of the largest technology companies, from his home base near Aberystwyth at a time when working from home wasn't a thing.

A self-confessed contrarian who loves challenging goals and working to solve highly complex technology problems with others, Clive discovered that becoming a specialist expert in a particular niche area makes you highly sought after. He also found time to pursue his love of the outdoors and take on climbing/ultra-running challenges.
Discover how his default position of saying yes to opportunity led him to a life-changing chance to learn a method of rational thinking to solve problems, which he applies to every part of his life, and how opportunity helped him to retire from corporate life at 55, a goal he had set 15 years before he achieved it in 2023.
Now working as a contractor on solving complex problems for clients, Clive spends more time doing what he loves – being a dirtbag rock climber, training his spaniel and continuing to be the curator of TEDx Aberystwyth, exploring interesting ideas.
He also does the rewarding work of supporting the next generation of aspiring computer scientists as an honorary fellow of Aberystwyth University and listening to a Swedish psychedelic progressive rock band!
