37: Lunch with Leon episode 37 - Prof. John Miles

Lunch with Leon

“Make it as clean and simple as possible.” That’s the guiding principles that Prof John Miles Director of Research in Transitional Energy Strategies at the University of Cambridge, reckons we should focus on for transport. He’s no ‘boffin’ either, but also gets his hands dirty in the real world working with global consultants, Arup, and has first-hand knowledge of many types of transport schemes. He tells Leon Daniels what’s wrong with Milton Keynes, and talks about the opportunity-charging bus project in the city. Swiftly scything through all the jargon, he cuts to the chase to set out the pros and cons of all the different energy types used to power vehicles; which ones have the edge and why. In an informed and objective analysis, he looks at what is possible. Throwing down a challenge to elected mayors looking to solve congestion, he sets out why it’s not an impossible solution.

Miles "You see, a vision is like a porous bucket. And that's why we need to repeat it continuously until it's known by heart and becomes part of our personal character or organizational culture. That is why it is so critical that you get away from living this pinball life and that you start creating a vision for the future that you would like to attain." "Prepare and your chance will come to take your vision for the future and make it a reality. When you say no to 100 other missions, you say yes to the most crucial one there is. And that is exactly the reason I created Passion Struck. To become the catalyst that helps you who are struggling to understand how do you take this idea and take it to action.

Transformations Interview: John Miles, iWorker

Transformations, Interviewing World Changers

When he saw the people in Venezuela, suffering under the dictatorship there, it touched John Miles, a digital entrepreneur. He partnered up with another entrepreneur and they decided the best way to help was to find a way to employ these educated, talented and hard-working people.  He also paid them in US dollars because the Venezuelan currency would lose it's value very quickly and people could not provide for themselves and their families.  He came up with the idea for iWorker, which pairs talent like web design, social media skills, etc. to business who need these skills. Soon he had 7,000 companies on board and over 350 skilled workers, some of whom are now employed by these companies as regular employees via Zoom. His work enabled many of the workers to leave Venezuela to the safety of other countries to live a safe and normal life. Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/WorldChangers)

In 2017, John decided he wanted to experience a new culture and learn a new language so he cashed out his ownership in the companies he was involved in and bought a one-way ticket to Buenos Aires, Argentina.Soon after arriving in Buenos Aires, John met his now business partner, Jeb. After hearing the stories of food and medicine shortages from their Venezuelan friends who had fled the crisis back in their country, John and Jeb decided to try to do something to help out the situation. They soon got the idea for a socially-focused virtual assistant agency that could connect college educated Venezuelans with online work in North America. Today iWorker has grown to over 300 workers and 700 clients and has expanded to other countries going through economic crisis such as Haiti, Nicaragua, Zimbabwe and Kenya.
