Our guest today is David Hajdu, the Head of Product Development for TINYpulse.
Dave has spent the last ten years of his life helping leaders use technology to enhance their business value. For seven of those years it was in the outsourcing space where, at Vinasource, they built 100’s of applications for companies ranging from employee number one to his old employer Microsoft. In 2012, a friend of his came to him with an idea to solve a simple mission, Make Employees Happier. And with that came the birth of TINYpulse. At TINYpulse they help over 1,000 companies around the world discover how their team members are feeling and performing.
Four years ago, he had the privilege of joining the Entrepreneur’s Organization (EO) where currently, he is championing a new chapter in Saigon. Through this group of amazing individuals he’s learned so much about how fellow members run their businesses.
Saigon has been amazing to Dave, and like many others, he has fallen in love with her. So it brings him great pleasure to harness his life experiences and work with successful companies as they set up shop in Saigon and build amazing teams.

- Why it is important to not focus on what people “think” versus actually looking at what the data says.
- Stage appropriate hires — ensuring the hires you are making are meeting you at the same stage your company is at.
- How the role of the second-in-command can be a lonely place to be and how to overcome this.
