OneHive Founder, Culture Coach, and Speaker
Derrek created OneHive out of the belief that everyone deserves to be passionate about the work they do so that they can find fulfillment in the work they do. Not only is it the right thing to do, but the necessary thing for any business to survive over time.
Derrek's varied past is responsible for bringing this belief about professional passion to light. Early in life, he had the opportunity to be a part of the Madison Scouts Drum & Bugle Corps—a world-class music group. This was his first experience feeling the fulfillment that came from being part of a group that nailed the soft skills. In his professional life, he has worked as an engineer at Collins Aerospace and a marketer at DISH, which has allowed him to see how corporate culture functions across different roles and industries. But throughout his tenure with both of these companies, and others, he was never able to find passion or fulfillment.
During his professional journey, Derrek also took a 2-year sabbatical that was spent living in South America and Russia. Experiencing how people in these countries lived life, whether it was deep in the Amazon or the megacity of Moscow, gave him new perspectives on how we, as humans, strive to find passion and fulfillment.
These experiences served as the genesis for OneHive and are why passion is at the heart of everything we do. Let us help you unify your people by unleashing the passion within them. Let us help you become One Hive.
