David speaking on how no one’s career really follows a straight line and why that’s awesome.

About the speaker

David Ryan is the cofounder of Corilla, a publishing software company spun out of Red Hat’s technical communications team. His long term focus on content and collaboration technology has shaped a career from the opposing ends of data science and design. This journey has taken him through adventures ranging from coal mines in Kentucky, raves in Serbia, photoshoots in Singapore and right through to recently becoming the first international startup to be accepted into the NUMA accelerator program in Paris. And all of them related.

This Friday, David will take us through this timeline from data analyst to startup CEO, illustrating how “linear is a lie” when building a career narrative. He will explore the reality behind the career arcs and outliers that build the foundations for technical creatives to draw from their epic wins, humbling failures, and far-out side projects to build authentic, meaningful, and just outright adventurous lives.
