SDP 65: Dean Sadler on turning TribePad into a climate-positive company

In episode 65 of the Sheffield Digital Podcast we speak to Dean Sadler, founder and CEO of TribePad about his plans to make the company climate positive. Plus there’s the usual round up of news, events and exciting information.

In the first part of the episode, we speak to Dean about some of the data captured by TribePad recruitment software over the last six months. Having spoken to Commercial Director, Neil Armstrong at the start of the pandemic, it was interesting to hear the state of play now. 

We then went on to talk to Dean about what it means in practice to try and make a company climate positive. He shares some of the things he and the TribePad team have done to offset their carbon impact, which includes planting trees (“you can never have enough trees”).

In the second half of the show, Mel and Chris share some of their usual updates from the city’s digital sector, including:

  • the Sheffield City Region Strategic Economic Plan (SEP)
  • getting behind the Kickstart Job Creation fund
  • the Tech Nation Growth programmes
  • the National Digital Skills Audit
  • Sheffield Digital Festival news.
