  • Brittany Forsyth
    Former Chief Talent Officer, Shopify

    Fellow has been a game changer for us. I love how lightweight and easy it is to use. It intuitively builds into my day-to-day rhythm, and the natural flow of Shopify, making it so much simpler to have valuable conversations.”

  • John Gleeson

  • Sabrina Leblanc
