Welcome to The Data Center Exchange Podcast with host Del Connolly, Global Director of Harper Harrison, a built environment recruiting firm as he is joined by some of the most senior leaders within the data center industry.

Anna is hugely passionate about all things culture and a real curator of culture at one of the shining stars of the Data Center Development Industry. We delve into organizational culture holistically and explore the differences culturally between organisations within the Digital Infrastructure world and those across other industries. We also shine a light on Compass Datacenters and learn a bit about their secret sauce.

She is known as a culture catalyst, capable of driving positive change throughout an organization.
