Dave wants to share the secret. It’s not that hard. Collabora has seen a nearly 20% growth in the last 18 months, with Dave being one of those people to join the open-source consultancy company. Coming from a background of leadership with qualifications in mental health training and suicide prevention training and working with a diverse mix of people, Dave wants to discuss how important culture is and what the term diverse really means.
