Revitalizing Traditional Trades

May 24, 2023


In an era where the gig economy has taken the front seat, traditional trade jobs struggle to stay relevant. At the heart of this changing landscape lies a crucial question: How do we breathe new life into the trades and focus attention in revitalizing traditional trades? In this week’s episode of Straight Outta Crumpton, host Greg Crumpton, and Gabrielle Bar address this question through an engaging discussion with Derek Cameron, owner of 3805 Productions.

From Derek’s transition from corporate life to higher education, and finally to starting his own media business, the conversation touches on a variety of intriguing themes relating to revitalizing traditional trades.

Crumpton, Cameron, and Bar discuss…

How to introduce hands-on roles in a way that is attractive to younger workers.

The profound impact of drone technology on construction projects and how it can bring new talent into the trades.

The role of small businesses in the trades industry and the need for better business management to aid their growth.

Derek Cameron, a former employee of Boston College and Northeastern University, transitioned into the trades through a circuitous path. After founding 3805 Productions and gaining his drone license, he developed a deep interest in construction initiatives, specifically capturing the hard work of people on construction sites.
