Meet the Publican: David
1. What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
I’ve got two. The importance of recognizing that everyone has a story, and not to underestimate the importance of being a good listener.
2. Where’s your favourite place?
Around the dinner table. No question. Whether it’s with friends, family, or alone – it’s a place where I can surround myself with the things I love to eat, and share those things, and build memories, with the people that I love.
3. What Harry Potter house would you be placed in?
Whichever one has the best snacks and the coldest beer.
4. What social impact issue means a lot to you?
Generally, I’d say equality – more specifically across the LGBT community. While there is still so much more work to do in order to move the needle even further both locally and in other parts of the world, I’m very thankful to be living in a time and place where I can be a part of and witness impactful change.
5. What’s your favourite thing about working at PUBLIC?
I joined Public because it seemed to be the perfect storm of what I was looking for in my next role. I was very intrigued and moved by the work that’s done here, but even more than that, it was the team that really sold me. The team at Public is made up of really dedicated and hardworking people, who truly live and breathe their ethos in what they do and how they treat their teams.
