Episode 405: Entrepreneurs in High Places
The BusinessMakers interview Peter Shaper, serial entrepreneur, CEO of Greenwell Energy Solutions and Houston’s City Champion for Lemonade Day; and Michael Economides, mega-author and global energy expert. In our vignettes, Leisa visits with Clare Sullivan Jackson of the award-winning Sullivan Group; Robin interviews Brooke Mathes-Yep, NCI Building Systems; and Russ is at PKF’s Coffee with the Consuls: Colombia.
Russ and John host the show that champions free enterprise and we have way too much material for such a short radio show. It’s real world stuff and we got great brevity. Includes: The BusinessMakers Quote of the Week—a wise and lofty quote from a t-shirt; This Week in Business History includes well-known personalities Christopher Columbus, Eli Whitney, Barbie and passing mention of Jack Ruby’s conspiracy theory; and the Jargon Challenge Round—trendy technospeak that YOU should know.
It’s time again for us to turn our focus toward the annual Lemonade Day, one of the most successful entrepreneurship events ever—and it’s for kids! Russ visits with Peter Shaper, serial entrepreneur, former CEO of CapRock Communications, current chairman & CEO of Greenwell Energy Solutions and Houston’s City Champion for Lemonade Day.
Dr. Michael Economides has more credentials than we have room to mention here. He is a Stanford PhD, consults globally, has written extensively, authored 15 books and, by anyone’s standards, he is considered expert in global oil, gas and energy issues. And, yes, he has opinions on all our energy controversies. Russ conducts a wonderful interview with an amazing intellect.
