From Industrial Revolution to Sustainability Revolution – The business of fixing our future

This free webinar has ended and was successfully hosted on the 21st November 2013.

If you missed out please listen to the amazing insights and ideas that Jason Drew talks about.

This is an inspiring talk that really gets the thinking and creative juices flowing when it comes to rethinking business and business models of the future and how to apply technology and leadership in the right places to turn your business into a far more profitable and sustainable entity.

Jason is an award winning, international business leader and serial entrepreneur turned environmentalist, futurist and author. Jason joined the GCX team this year as a non-executive Director. Born in London, Jason studied at the European Business School in London and has lived and worked all over the world before moving to South Africa ten years ago.

He makes no apology for being a die-hard capitalist and has put his money where his mouth is through his investment into innovative and game changing businesses. In this session Jason will bring to life how he is making business better and share some insights on his latest green ventures. His award winning company, Agriprotein has been internationally recognised for its innovative approach to nutrient recycling – a method that uses waste and fly larvae to produce natural animal feed.

“These current protein sources are limited and the increasing demand for animal feed and their exploitation has devastating effects on the environment. This motivated AgriProtein to develop and test a new large-scale natural and sustainable source of protein – we use existing abattoir waste products to feed fly eggs as they grow into larvae, which are then harvested and dried into Magmeal – with an equivalent nutritional composition to fishmeal and better than soy,” states Drew.

Jason brings an inspiring and brutally honest commercial perspective to any business on sustainability and innovation.
