With a decade of experience developing digital applications, platforms, and solutions, Donal has seen and conquered many of the technical challenges presented by the digital transformation. However, increasingly frustrated by incomplete, over complicated and failing projects he sought to understand the role of the social in effecting competitive advantage.
