"What terrifies me the most is that we are running out of time. We have, like, maybe five years at the most to make changes. We cannot just think about our individual actions anymore, but rather how we can influence at least ten others at the same time. We need to do this for our children."
James hasn’t had a straight forward trajectory. He has certainly experienced the ups and downs of life as an individual, but also in business. Whilst we didn’t delve into all this on this podcast, seeing his business and him now thriving makes my heart sing with happiness. He truly is an inspiration to me and those who are fortunate enough to call him friend, colleague, peer or family.
Today, James uses his extensive experiences to support businesses to create new revenue streams by tapping into new technologies and business strategies that can improve their bottom-line financial performance and enhance environmental sustainability. He has worked within energy distribution, energy retail, property development, embedded networks, new energy start-ups and technology companies. His expertise extends to business development, product development, energy regulation strategy and new energy technology, including in solar, batteries, embedded networks, microgrids, energy efficiency, energy management and data analytics, demand aggregation, virtual power plants and peer-to-peer energy.
Wow! What does all that mean? Simply stated, it means he wants to leave the planet a better place… most notably for his children.
And so do I.
"It is time to lean in, to step up... to be the change which we want to see in the world"
