The Green Bubble

The fact is, we are hopelessly addicted to energy. It is the thin glue that holds our civilized world together and life without it would be unthinkable.

Per Wimmer, Owner of Wimmer Financial, Wimmer Family Office and WimmerSpace.com, is releasing his book The Green Bubble this November. The Green Bubble offers an analysis of the current financial bubble being created in the energy sector, by governments subsidizing renewable energy investment. He argues that these investments are not sustainable, and makes a case for investment in gas and, controversially, nuclear power.

Alongside the pressure to reduce greenhouse emissions, there is a challenge to find new, renewable energy sources. Many of the current ideas, Wimmer argues, are politically driven. The book also offers an engaging and intelligent analysis of the different energy issues that the world is facing, and how politics has led us in the wrong direction.

The Fourth Great Transformation

A new human species will soon come to co-exist with us. This new species, 'Homo nouveau', will be created using artificial intelligence and genetic engineering; both important tools which are in their infancy. Not only are the science and technology relatively new, but their implications in the mind of the general public are also only just beginning to enter our collective consciousness. This book expands on the research done for the author's pervious book, What Comes After Homo Sapiens?
Written by a medical professional and independent consultant to healthcare IT companies, The Fourth Great Transformation explores the questions of what this new species will look like, how we as humans will get along with them, and the potential threats and opportunities that will come along with genetically modified humans.

All organizations are on a trajectory to a future: their default future. This is where they will end up if they take no action other than that currently planned. Leaders are accountable for confronting this default future and taking the actions needed to set a trajectory to an improved future.

Only then can strategic opportunities be explored, a trajectory of strategic intent defined and the conditions for turning strategic intent into operational reality put in place. This book won t tell you what your strategy should be, nor does it present a multi-step approach to developing strategy. What it will do is help you understand why developing and executing strategy remains such a challenge. It will also help readers understand the role they need to play at a personal level if they are passionate about leading their organization beyond its default future.
