Paul simply enjoys innovation in all its aspects from discovery to execution, recognizing the growing importance of ecosystems and platforms. At present, his focus is the Energy Transition, an amazing place to release the potential of innovation. He got ‘hooked’ twenty years ago on innovation and since then have increasingly focused on “where innovation can accelerate” until it became 100% of my business thinking and activities today across the different social, business, and institutional needs in increasingly more focused application and execution.
