Footballer David, who recently retired from the sport, is currently on a seven-day visit as part of his ambassador role for the Football Programme in China and for China's Super League.
The dad-of-four had spent the afternoon having a kick around with children before attending the formal conference in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province.
Adjusting his tie as he took to the stand, it was clear David wanted to make a good impression on the journalists and officials who had gone along to hear him speak.
Photographers snapped David arriving in China yesterday (17 June) and this is his second visit to the country.
In March, David was pictured on the football pitch during his first tour, proving that he is still Goldenballs in a shirt and smart shoes!
