Ep 24: David O'Coimin - CEO The Do Company: Dynamic workplaces of the future
In today's episode, I speak with CEO and founder of The Do Company David O'Coimin. We talk about the future of workplaces and spaces and how organisations need to think and ACT now on how they design and construct those spaces. Because in David's view, our current predicament is not going away, and rather than plan for post-Covid 19 we need to accept that the future is now.
David has some fascinating insight into the challenges and needs of employees in the workplace and how we can offer them better comfort and accessibility to the workspace.
