My name is David Rutledge and for years, I struggled to find a job that was a good fit for me. For a long time, I felt like my education was never going to be useful beyond being just a piece of paper on my wall. This is a short description of my story and how I felt.

INVORG is pleased to host you -- changemakers, leaders, and community members -- for a roundtable on innovation on London.
You are the ones who are in it, every day, working to build your businesses, innovate, and build something great. You each have valuable tips and insights on how to get things done, and you've also likely identified areas for improvement in London for businesses to grow.
Let's come together for a roundtable discussion to learn from each other and build community among leaders and friends.
I immigrated to Canada from war-torn Sri Lanka in 1986. When I arrived, I knew no one, and I needed a job. St. Peter’s Seminary offered me a bed to sleep in, and while I was there they introduced me to the CEO of a software company. That introduction and the chance he gave me changed my life: I have now been working in technology for over 30 years. After some time as the Chief Technology Office of the City of London, I started my own technology and innovation company, INVORG.
The lesson I have learnt is that change is necessary for our personal growth and success. Easily said, but in real life, it can be a Herculean task to adapt to the changes. Before joining INVORG, in India, I was surrounded by only people who belonged to my culture and community. For the first time at INVORG, I got an opportunity to enjoy “Unity in Diversity.”
