Have you ever wondered what it's like to switch careers into conservation, maybe moving from banking, marketing or law and supply your trade in an effort to save nature? Well, that's what today's guest has done.
Nick Bubb is the Business Development Director at Fauna & Flora International (FFI) and prior to FFI, he spent nearly 10 years in professional ocean racing, covering 100,000 sea miles before moving into finance, and then finally into conservation. He's now charged with raising funds for major conservation projects and programs across 40 countries and 300 partners, and gets to work closely with the likes of Sir David Attenborough.
In this podcast, we talk about what skills are needed in the modern conservation movement, and how to switch careers with success. We also discuss how to prepare for a TED Talk and what it's like to spend time with Sir David. It's a really fascinating, wide ranging chat. Enjoy.
