It turns out there can be several “I”s in the word team. BrumHour is all about the skills of the individual and the strength of teams. Here’s who makes up team BrumHour.

As well as managing BrumHour, Dave presents BrumHour on Brum Radio with producer Reene Chauhan, a weekly show exploring how businesses, freelancers and charities use social media.
