David O’Leary Canadian and Global
education, business, computing leader
By Stephen Ibaraki FCIPS, I.S.P., ITCP

David O’Leary was quintessentially Canadian in leading in so many disciplines globally and yet presenting a modest public profile – uniquely combining top-level thinking with good humour and infectious optimism.

Dave passed away at the age of 62 on May 26 in Chilliwack, B.C. and leaders worldwide will feel his loss.

I first met Dave when I was teaching at Capilano University (then a college) almost 30 years ago. Right away, our shared interest in teaching and in the world of venture capital drew us together as colleagues and as friends. We’d go on to co-found REDDS Venture Investment Partners together in 2014, after Dave was brave enough to take the leap from his executive job in the world of academia to join me. We even travelled to CES in Las Vegas together several times, evaluating the most innovative technologies on the show floor.

Are you a company looking to give back within your community? Do you have unwanted or used equipment you no longer need or want?

Well, do we have news for you!
Starting the month of July ERA will be implementing our Day of Donations campaign.

What does this mean?
This means that once a month we will be donating to several organizations from our waiting list on one particular day in one city on a monthly basis!

We are reaching out to companies to help make an organizations dream a reality!

How do you benefit?
Not only are you giving back to your community and gaining social enterprise but you are enabling charitable organizations to reach their full potential.

How does it work?
  1. Once a month we will donate to one of our 7 city locations Canada wide.
  2. Roughly, between 3 to 5 organizations will receive a donation from our waiting list.
  3. Your company will book a pickup through one of our reliable representatives and specifically allocate your donation to this campaign.
  4. ERA will ensure a press release is sent out for media to come on the day.
Who do you contact?
