How David is building a better working world
The digital transformation driving the new world of work will have a profound impact on people, organizations and society.
“By combining my consulting experience with my activist roots − honed through anti-apartheid activities in South Africa, my team aims to make sure that none of us sleepwalk into the future.
This is the time for humans to make deliberate choices to ensure the ‘why,’ ‘what’ and ‘how’ of future workplaces maximizes our individual and collective potential, and ensures a future we want and chose.”
