How we connect across the globe in sales

I joined Immersive Labs’ revenue operations team in February of 2020, just before the global COVID pandemic started. I spent two weeks onboarding in Bristol (Immersive’s UK headquarters) getting to know the go-to-market (GTM), operations, and finance teams.

A day in the life of Evander, Web Developer

Starting a new job remotely is pretty much the norm these days. In March of 2020, I couldn’t have imagined I would work at home for over two years. Back then, I was accustomed to mostly working in the office, so switching to five days a week at home took some getting used to. While…

What does Black History Month mean to you?

I’ll be honest and say that in the past, I didn’t give it much thought. My initial impression was that it was an initiative that was mainly American – it was a time when everyone focused on black achievements and issues for one month of the year.

Neurodiversity is my superpower!

2020 didn’t bring much positivity to the world, but if lockdown had a silver lining, it’s that it enabled me to learn much more about myself.

Those who know me will know that I am not a shy and retiring person – I share what’s on my mind, and some would say I wear my heart on my sleeve.  It all began back in the 1960’s: my two sisters and I were brought up in a household with a strong mother…
