Episode 28: Interview with technology guru Darrell O’Donnell

Situational Awareness MattersOn this episode, I interview technology guru Darrell O’Donnell. Darrell runs a successful technology coaching and consulting firm where he works to bridge the gap between technology experts and first responders.

Darrell has a special passion for technology that helps first responders develop, maintain and improve situational awareness by providing rapid access to critical information that can aid in decision making.

SPECIAL NOTE: This episode was recorded in Ottawa, just two days before a gunman killed a soldier and then stormed the Parliament and was killed by police. I was in Ottawa attending a research symposium at the Westin Hotel adjacent to the memorial where the soldier was killed. At the bottom of the show notes I will include a few pictures from the memorial in Ottawa.
