His familiarity with the jungle of digital solutions to help complex teams communicate and collaborate more effectively has served us well. George is an experienced facilitator, community builder, and corporate culture expert. He has been instrumental in helping the Bitcoin Association and its staff internalize the vision and mission and now pursue them hand in hand.”

“I had the pleasure of working with George in the early days of building Tribe Theory (now called Draper Startup House). He was terrific person to work with, both professionally and socially. What I admired most about George was his ability to do 'systems thinking' and setting up processes for automation and scalability of a company.”

Thanks to George’s thought leadership and drive, Slack was rolled out across Iress in 2018. It completely transformed how we communicated in the business. Furthermore, tight integration with Zoom, monitoring/alerting systems and internal services such as IT and HR, resulted in a seamless experience for everyone.George spearheaded the whole initiative and ensured he had the full support of our Exec team, which is so important when driving change and seeking adoption.I’d say the best evidence of just how important and successful this rollout had been, was how seamless it all felt when the Covid pandemic hit us. Despite the world going through a difficult time, from a workplace technology perspective we were able to operate remotely without a glitch and Slack was at the heart of it. It certainly was one less thing to worry about, and looking around at how many companies were struggling with this, I realised we were very privileged to be in such a strong position.

He is an excellent communicator and a deep listener. George genuinely cares, and he brings warmth and passion🔥 to what he's pursuing, whether it's tech or communities or any of his other passions. He is a visionary, often seeing trends and opportunities before others (and if you want to know what tech platforms will be big in the future, ask George ... he has his finger on the pulse!)
