Brian
Manager, User Experience Research

The trick to empowering creativity from my team is encouraging frequent communication and iteration. Embrace behaviors, not platitudes, that remind the team there is no such thing as failure. Embed creativity and make it more than a tagline. Show that nothing is unsalvageable; focus on ‘why’ things occurred, and make everything a learning opportunity.

One of my favorite parts of Acquia is partnering with different volunteer organizations. For the past five years, the Boston office has partnered with the Wonderfund (www.wonderfundma.org) to pair Acquians with the holiday wish lists of local children. We sponsored 250 kids in 2019 and look forward to continuing our partnership in 2020!
