“When you think about the role of technology in work, it's about freedom – the freedom to connect. It's about liberation. And I think that sort of runs through our industry when it's purring along at its best.”

- Paul Miller, DWG’s former CEO and Founder, turned Chief Creative Officer

What happens when two DWG CEOs – past and present – sit down together in the DWI studio? A conversation that sparkles with insights to tempt digital workplace pioneers and practitioners everywhere.

Known as an inspirational and unconventional leader, as well as an industry visionary, Paul Miller founded DWG more than 20 years ago, never wanting to head up a ‘normal’ company but going on to steer the team from strength to strength. Paul passed on the CEO leadership baton at the end of 2022 to become DWG’s first Chief Creative Officer.

In this episode of Digital Workplace Impact, Paul joins new DWG CEO and podcast host, Nancy Goebel, to share some of his learnings as CEO as well as uncovering a few of the surprises he’s encountered along the way. The pair discuss his leadership blueprint for unlocking a freedom ethic, while making the creative process fun, rewarding and valuable, and Paul looks forward to future plans to grow DWG’s ‘creative DNA’.

Add into the mix Nancy’s inciteful reflections, a good dose of humour, and discoveries from across the years, and this is a glorious podcast treat for the start of the new year. So, be in the company of CEOs and join us for a great listen from two of DWG’s leading mavericks.
