Cool Jobs: Information Communication Technology (ICT) Entrepreneur
Participant: James Greig
A degree in information technology and a career in entrepreneurship led James Greig to produce hand sanitizer during a global emergency. As a leader in the ICT industry and part of Griffith University’s ICT Industry Board, James’ work helps people to turn their dreams and ideas into reality. For James, the thrill is in building something that helps to solve real-world problems. Founding two tech businesses and a distillery, James was thrown a curve ball with the announcement of the COVID-19 lockdowns. Rather than putting his distillery business on hold, James saw an opportunity to help produce something that was in critically short supply – hand sanitizer. Using new technologies to help improve the lives of others? It’s all in a day’s work.
