For David Martin, cofounder of Nureva, the importance of hearing and being heard has been on his mind for a long time.
“Growing up, I realized my father had a hearing problem,” he says. “It occurred because he was in the engine room of a destroyer in the North Atlantic for five years. In my case, I have a hearing problem because I tuned race engines for five years of my young life, not knowing I needed ear protection.”
These personal experiences have sharpened his focus on a problem that affects everyone, no matter their hearing – bad meeting room audio.
