I was fortunate enough to meet James Bussey, an incredibly talented former architect turned creative expert who had the fantastic idea of giving people who lead their business with a mission, a platform to share their message to the world. Back in November 2019, James filmed episode 4 of the first series at our offices at The Enterprise Centre. James describes in his own words, what the Displacers series is all about. "The Displacers mini-series comprises of video interviews with inspiring thought leaders and company directors. These leaders are pioneering a revolution in their industry and evolving the way in which we all do business. The focus of this project is people that move business forwards. Motivational people that push boundaries and help us all perform better as a result. They are running companies that exist beyond county lines. Based here, but operating nationally and internationally."
S1:E4 Alexander Pond - Entrepreneur and Thought Leader
Alex Pond is redefining the term ‘sustainability’ and moving away from the familiar rhetoric of the last 50 years. Alex’s mission is not about simply reducing plastic straws, planting trees or sticking solar panels on new build houses. Moves like this are not a driver for real change and will not get us towards a genuinely sustainable future.
Instead, his revolution is based on economics. It is based on the simple principle that if businesses choose to properly implement the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, they can benefit from greater profits, greater reach, more customers and more success.Let's implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals
