John Bowers is in the business of adoption. His company, JCC Bowers, is at the forefront of facilitating the adoption of the Internet of Things and connected environments, including the connected car.
For John, three factors motivated him to set up the global technology company. “I founded JCC Bowers to address a number of distinct challenges I foresaw with industry: the lack of wealth distribution, the ever-increasing outsourcing of foundational roles to other countries, and the lack of integrity in ensuring stable, long-term and progressive careers,” he says.
Outside of JCC Bowers’s strict commercial focus, John leads the company to do more: “I’m most proud of the work we do with our local communities, which includes providing training sessions to long-term unemployed individuals through the ‘M3Job Club’.”
“It’s important that ethics, integrity and protection of our people, communities and economies become a prerequisite to all of our activities”
He believes that a vibrant future needs technology that is fixed in an ethical basis. “Business and businesses are continually progressing away from the industrial revolution and, as this progresses to yet further digital presences, it’s important that ethics, integrity and protection of our people, communities and economies become a prerequisite to all of our activities.”
The key to positive transformation is in the hands of businesses who must take it upon themselves to lead from the front. “When so many dedicate their lives to enabling a collective minority to realise a personal aspiration, the least that we business owners can do is ensure we help, protect and improve the environments in which we reside. It is our responsibility to enable change and it starts with me.”
