Founder and Managing Director of PDS Group, Steve Daum, explains how a culture of specialisation and focus enables innovation to thrive at PDS.

All About Being Innovative

As specialists, we strive to be masters of our chosen craft; to envisage new possibilities and bring them to reality. We draw inspiration from the achievements of others, reminded by historical triumphs that possibility lies where desire and imagination meet passion, dedication, precision, and grit. The road to our greatest human achievements is paved with conviction, ingenuity, and ultimately glory, but also sweat, grief, failure, and a good deal of luck.

Inspired by what others have made possible, and the ways in which they have striven to make it so, we hope that our own modest accomplishments will help inspire others to reach new heights. Below are five examples of people and moments in world history that drive our passion.

Careers

Innovation is something that happens when you challenge yourself and your colleagues to:

  • Think deeper about what you know and what you don’t;
  • Reach further into your imagination to envision something better;
  • Search wider to find the smartest way to realise your vision;
  • Fight harder to overcome all obstacles in your way; and
  • Realise success and then start all over again, because it’s in your DNA.

If this describes you, then a career at PDS Group will be an exciting journey into technology, science and community!
