I had the good fortune and privilege of co-founding and leading an enertech business literally from a napkin drawing in a Melbourne coffee shop to a listing on the ASX (ASX Code: BID) with customers in Australia, New Zealand, UK and the USA. As MD In that environment, you do everything from putting the bins out to briefing shareholders. On the way you gain insights into a vast amount of stuff.
Combining that experience with my career-long involvement in international energy & environmental markets and my policy role on the board of the Climate Change Authority It was a natural progression for me to move from working exclusively in one business to working on a variety of businesses.
My focus is helping businesses with best-in-class energy and sustainable technology solutions get to the next level – as a Mentor, Expert Advisor, Non-Executive Director and Advisory Board Chair.
Mentoring through the Startupbootcamp Energy Australia is a privilege and the energy and innovation are hugely stimulating. I see my role as helping entrepreneurs join the dots, refine and articulate their ideas and hopefully, accelerate their speed to market by putting them in touch with people and businesses I know in the sector.
This award is not what I came for but the validation is deeply appreciated. Thank you.
