Virtual Coffee Morning #1 with David Maher Roberts

Back in March, we launched our Virtual Coffee Morning series to keep conversations running throughout the South West digital tech community over lockdown. Experienced leaders and founders from Bristol, Bath and beyond came together online to discuss the future of tech, as well as to offer advice for business development and resilience during a crisis. In case you missed the live events, we’ll be sharing stories and insights from our wonderful guest speakers over the course of the next few weeks.

To kick off the series we invited David Maher Roberts to chat with TechSPARK’s Managing Director, Ben Shorrock. David (aka DMR) will be familiar to many of you as one of the original founders of TechSPARK, back when it was just a team of enthusiastic volunteers 8 years ago. He’s the Global Managing Director at Dialect and an experienced digital media executive with 20 years of senior, board-level roles under his belt.

David talked about building a company culture within a startup and how to create and nurture a strong team. We also asked which business tools he’s finding useful for communicating with his international team through lockdown and the advice he’d give SMEs in terms of using web-based content to face the challenges ahead.
