How did you get to become an expert in your key topics?

Dan is Co-founder & CEO at Kadence, where he and the Kadence team are building an operating system for hybrid working.

Dan believes the way we work has changed forever. Kadence is on a mission to improve synchronization of people, space and time, creating the best conditions for people to thrive in the new era of work. Kadence is setting a standard for how work is optimized.

The virtual world means less face to face time, and we have all become more intentional about when and where we choose to work. Kadence removes friction between home and office to boost flexibility, productivity and workplace experience.

What challenges are brands facing in this space?

  • Coordinating people and spaces in a hybrid world
  • Attracting and retaining employees
  • Optimizing your workspaces for hybrid work

What do you think the future holds in this space?

Hybrid working is here to stay. As vaccinations roll out and economies tentatively open up, organizations are working out what their new normal will look like.

The digital collaboration experience is here to stay. Digital is as real as real. It’s strong. It’s going to get a lot more innovative and immersive. And it’s starting to wrap itself around wellbeing, not just productivity.

There are many moments during the cycles of work – convergences in the joined up rhythms of getting stuff done – when we are so much better served by being physically together – creative moments, brainstorming, water-cooler moments.

What brands are leading the way in this space?

Okta, Slack, Microsoft, Twitter.

If a brand wanted to work with you, which activities would you be most interested in collaborating on?

I am interested in webinars, podcasts, speaking opportunities & video/written interviews.
